Looking For $800 Gaming PC

I am looking for a computer under or around $800. I play World of Warcraft, Minecraft, and maybe Battlefield 3 in the future.

Approximate Purchase Date: January 17

Budget Range: $600-$800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Editing, Surfing the Internet.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, and I'll maybe buy Monitor separately.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg

Country: United States

Parts Preferences: None

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Quiet computer. If you include monitor, I will raise price range to $1000. Also needs winows 7 home premium. Blue LED's would nice.

    Cyberpower is not a good brand. Stick with building one - it's not that hard and you'll get a far better system out of it.

    PSU: Corsair CX600 - $69.99
    Motherboard: Asrock 970 Extreme 4 - $109.99
    CPU: 3.6GHz AMD Phenom II X4 960T - $149.99
    Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 - $29.99
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) - $43.99
    HD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200RPM - $119.99

    Get a better case , maybe the HAF 912
    Better RAM
    MB with a Z68 chipset
  4. Do I really need a separate fan, doesn't the CPU come with it?

    CPU's come with a heatsink and fan . You dont NEED to buy another one , but aftermarket models with larger fans and more fins cool better and run quieter .
    Overclockers should use better heatsinks
  7. Well since I won't be doing any overclocking any time soon, is it better to hold off on after market fan, especially since I'm new builder
