Where can I buy a cheaper processor that I can get a deal on not paying retail. Have no microcenters near me. I am playing on a 42 inch. 1080p I believe.

Also need a HDD or a memory unit for cheap dont wana pay $110
freaking dollars $80 sounds nice :)  need help on finding that!

Alo need some ram that has some dicount don't want any retail garbage :)  a rebate would be nice around $40 smells good.

Major priority gaming would like to max out the graphics to diablo 3, sc2, skyrim, maybe others.

Budget Range: $720 after Rebates


Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS,etc.)


Country: USA

Overclocking: no, however that switch on the graphics card is realy sweet increases shaders by 128 making it have 1536, so sweet and easy. not even close to OC but it might change power needed...

Two options for the processor
The Phenom 955 is the same part as the 970 but clocked lower so you may as well buy that and just OC to 970 [ or higher] levels
Or the FX 4100 which is massively OCable

Either of those saves you .

Search on Newegg for 1600 Mhz , 1.5 volt RAM There are good 2 x2 gig pairs for under $30

If are just gaming consider NOT getting a hard drive now . Its almost orth it to get a small SSD at about the same price . Sure you wont have much storage for your video collection but do you need it?
When hard drive prices drop then you could add one later

Thanks however I am quite new and I donot know how to overclock and would just like to get somthing straight up what processor would be good for that and where to buy? And what should I get for storage then? I need some sort of storage and also donot wanna spend cash money for a ssd.
Was also thinking a 4gbx2 for the ram.

If you don't plan to overclock, a i3-2100 and H61 board would be better.

Yep--if you're dead set on not overclocking, then i3-2100 and H61. If you're open to OC'ing, then Phenom II x4 955BE. The 970 is a bad buy.

Buy that PSU now before it goes out of stock.

Buy that RAM NOW before it goes out of stock.

If you think you'll be OC'ing, I'd get the Corsair A70 Dual fan cooler for $19: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

6950: That's nice if you unlock it and a waste of money if you don't.

Yeah, all those parts are pretty solid.

Is overclocking hard? Not particularly. It would have to be your recreation project over the course of a weekend--so it could easily take 8 hours--less if you start a thread here and have us walk you through it. If you decide to really push settings, it'll take you longer. If I was to overclock that machine, it would take me about 30 minutes to reach a comfortable overclock--probably about 4.0GHz. But with less experience, you'll have a lot of questions. You can save some time now by looking at the bios on the computer you're currently using. Familiarity with bios settings will make you more comfortable with it.

The IDE HDD is not good for one very simple reason: that motherboard has no IDE ports. IDE is essentially a dead and obsolete technology. If you can find SATA, stick with that.

If it can fit in your budget, consider the $120 OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD:http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/63196/newegg-120gb-ocz-...
If you do get one of these, be sure to update the firmware (can't do it when it's your primary OS disk from Windows, but you can w/ Linux). Also make sure to use the AHCI setting in your bios and enable Trim support. This will make more sense later on if you get the drive and read up on it.

Newegg's Monitor Sale, if you haven't bought one yet: http://promotions.newegg.com/Monitor/112811/index.html?...

Here's the cheapest case I've seen with front panel USB 3.0 $49.99, but it's kinda tiny: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You'd want to double check that your graphics would fit.

$105 Phenom II x4 955BE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you haven't bought a PSU yet. This $70 Corsair TX750 can handle dual 6950's/6970's: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's not cheap, but it's a good price for what it is.
