Would like input on a new build

Have not been keeping up with the hardware scene for quite a while and could use some input. Thank you in advance for your help. Here is what im thinking right now:

More about would input build
  1. What is your budget?
  2. everything is fine but don't buy gtx 550ti a little upgrade go for gtx 560ti spend little more now system is much better.
  3. Budget is $700 - $1000. Will not be overclocking. Also, do i need a soundcard or will onboard card be good enough. Buying from newegg, suggestion on soundcard if needed.
  4. Onboard sound will be good enough, check out the Sept 2011 $1000 build it will do much better unless you are an AMD fan or perfer it.

    take out what you dont like (i.e the SSD) use the money to upgrade GPU to a 560 Ti
  5. After listening to the suggestions I have changed it to this:

    Right now I am at $906, with a max budget of $1000. If anyone can see where i can significantly improve and still stay under budget let me know. Also, this hardware is still not set in stone so am still looking for suggestions as to where I can still swap for better price/quality.

    Is the RAM that I still have gonna work or should I get something else? How many gigs of RAM do i need?
  6. get thsi ram instead:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220570

    its $46.99 instead of $109.99.

    the actual performance difference between 8gb of DDR3-1600 and 8 GB of DDR3-2000 is about 0.4 FPS. not worth it.

    Use the savings plus the remainder of your budget to get a 120 GB SSD as a boot/primary programs drive.
  7. I have read some problems with the Patriot RAM. Should I spend just a few more bucks for Corsair or G-skill? Will any DDR3 1600 RAM fit with my system? It seems to me that some of it is only tailored to Intel CPU's. Here is what I was thinking for the RAM

    What do you guys think? And what is the advantages of having an SSD? Is it worth it?
  8. i recommend g.skill ram.
  9. g.skill or Mushkin is fine if you don't want the Patriot RAM. I'd stick with 1.5V RAM, though.

    the advantage of an SSD is drastically reduced load times for everything (startup to boot of windows in 15 seconds, games in 2-3 seconds!)

    everyone who has tried them never wants to go back
  10. yes it is worth ssd is an absolute solution for OS to boot quickly than HDD e.g if HDD can boot windows7 in 40 seconds then SSD can boot in 17 or 20 seconds.
    similarly your games can also perform much better with having SSD e.g installed BF3 in SSD and run it, it will loader much quicker and perform better than HDD.
  11. Could you recommend a SSD for my system. If I get a SSD, then do I still need a decent hard drive or can i skimp on that?
  12. crusial m4 SSD
    1.128gb
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442

    2.64gb
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148447

    they gives you much advantages but they are too expensive.

    ssd are design for special stuffs like OS and some heaviest games e.g bf3,skyrim,rage etc but if you have extra space in it than you can install other games also..
  13. I have just one more question. My CPU and motherboard are compatible correct?
