Hey Guys would just like to thank anyone who takes the time to help me out before i get started here. I plan on doing my first build. I been trying to do as much researching for parts as i can but still unsure about some things. My budget is around 2500~ including everything. I plan on using this for gaming ie: battlefield, War/starcraft, and diablo. I think i got a half way decent build going but we'll see.

So heres what i came up with so far.....

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Keyboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mouse: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Flash reader: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Thanks again to any help/sugestions.... I plan on buying all the parts in this month to try and take advantage of the upcoming deals. Also I plan on possiblly goiing SLI in the near future depending on if i need it, not really sure yet.

I didn't know you could spend $140 on a 1tb HDD.

If you want to keep the price the same, buy a different HDD and put more money into a better PSU.

For example:

Mind you, when I say 'better', I mean more watts. Your budget seems to be pretty big, and the weakest part is probably your PSU.

Well, its helpful if you have a descriptor for the link so we don't have to follow 20 links to see what you're after.

I think you'll like the monitor, I love mine. It isn't much over my old 22inch in height, but it seems mostly bigger in width. But it is certainly brighter than the Acer, and more clarity as well.
Looks like a nice build for a serious gamer. For me personally I wouldn't spend quite so much on the peripherals.
The SSD is a winner.

Why would the OP need 1000Watts? 850 is more than enough for his build....

thats kind of what i thought too i just wasnt 100% sure...would it still be enough if i planned on dropping another GPU later on? also one of the reasons i went with that psu was it combo'd with the memory.

BTW, better does not mean more watts, it is means a higher quality power supply. For the latest in power supplies, I recommend you check out johnny Guru:

Again, I'm not going to follow 20 different links but what I saw looks compatible.
