PLEASE NOTE: THE BOTTOM OF MY BUILD IS A COMBO BUNDLE -- if you think I really should cancel the order and re do it please let me know an updated version!!! -- ALSO I really need to know what i'm missing I know that makes me look really dumb and it does*** - But I know i'm missing these things -- a video card, dvd burner / reader, an OS, and probably something else please let me know.

Approximate Purchase Date: N/A

Budget Range: (e.g.: 600-800) Before / After Rebates $800-950

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies) GAMING ALL THE WAY I WANT HIGH-ULTIMATE 60 FPS ;) 

Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using** I think I need an OS because i don't have one i'm just building it and it doesnt come with one right? i'll link what im buying below, I am using my TV LED "42 w/ hdmi, razer naga epic, and wireless keyboard, and Sony entertainment theatre YEE!

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing) Newegg.com all from there <---

Country: (e.g.: India) we need to know where these parts are being assembled NJ, United States

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case) Don't care about the brand to be honest, of course most people like cheap and whatever is best you know.

Overclocking: Yes / No / Maybe -- Yes I think the parts I have is overclockable -- honestly i'm dumb and I don't know how to overclock so --MAYBE--

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe-- ughh I don't know what that is i'm sorry guys :( 

Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200) 1920x1080 -- I'm using the LED TV "42 and buying an Asus "23.6 black

Additional Comments: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC) I would prefer a quiet PC yes, Na doesn't have to have that much bling

Include a list of any parts you have already selected with descriptively labeled links for parts.

The easiest method is to paste the label on one line and then paste the link below it.

good build so far all you need now is a video card

I dunno where your budget is at so far... that is what you have left... but the os is going to run you about 100 and then a ATI 6950 or 560ti is going to run you 250-300 bucks

A 560 Ti would probably be a good bet as your graphics card- it has the most bang for your buck and I'm pretty sure it can handle most games on high, if not max.

If you have to choose between the 560 and the 560Ti i would get the 560Ti since it is a better card and comes with more processor cores (384 vs 336).

Dvd burner and aftermarket heatsink/fan if you don't want the stock one that comes with it.

Do you think the heatsink/fan that comes with it will be enough usually, and what about an OS?

if you are getting the i5 2500k and are going to OC it yes you will need a better CPU Cooler, Hyper 212+ or Hyper 212 EVO are good ones that can handle I believe up to 4.5ghz if I remember correctly
