Does this look like a good new build? $900

Antec 300 case
Gigabyte Gtx 560 Ti
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 1600
AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma 3.0ghz
ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W

It seems decent to me, for at least a couple of years. My only question is on the QVL for the memory, they listed the G.Skill ripjaws -4GBRL as compatible, which is for the 2x2 gb version, but there is also the 2x4 gb version with everything the same its just a 4gb version with the code -8GBRL. Will the 2x4 gb ram still be compatible with the motherboard like the 2x2 gb sticks will?

Hi there! Welcome to the forums.

I would skip the 960t. Can you get a different CPU? I'm not sure what configuration is available. A 955 BE would be a better option IMO.

Yup, a 2x4 kit is compatible.

What website/company are you buying from?
