Hello everyone. I plan on building my first pc around Christmas time and I have a few questions regarding the pc parts.

I am using a build almost identical to my cousin's. He has posted here before and this is a link to his build: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/312977-31-budget-comp...

You can go look on his thread for the details but I'll post the parts here too:

Graphics:

Problem here - This product has been deactivated. Any suggestions for the replacement? I have been told to check out the Radeon 6850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Power Supply:

RAM:

Motherboard:

Processor:

Case:

Apart from the graphics card, does anyone have any suggestions where I am upgrade for a good price? Or possibly get a cheaper version of a part if it is not worth the money? I am also keeping an eye out for some possible Black Friday deals. If anyone knows of any, can you please let me know?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

You can save $8 by buying this RAM (the heatspreaders won't do much good unless you're overclocking the RAM):

G.SKILL NS 4GB Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS $21

You can also save $25 by going with this case:
NZXT Beta EVO $45

With the $30 you saved, you can buy a Radeon 6870, which is better than the 6850:

PSU is built for Corsair by Channelwell which in and of itself doesn't mean much as CW also builds their premium HX series line. But for $60 you could have either the XFX Core Edition 650 or Corsair TX650 V2 which are quite a step above the CX series.

Get this motherboard $70 H67. You don't need P67 lol.

Get this CPU + GPU combo i3-2100 + 6870. You save $12
