So i'm probably going to buy a pretty new custom built computer. Let me know what you think.

Tower: COOLER MASTER HAF 922

Motherboard: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3

Processor: i5 2500k

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 (1G)

Power Supply: CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (Modular)

Heatsink: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212


I'm actually going to order from multiple places so prices aren't solid.
Let me know if you find anything wrong with something i picked or throw a suggestion at me.

Not exactly what I would classify as cheap, but suit yourself.

As for the build, not bad, seems good. Have fun with it.

What do you want to do with it though, just gaming purposes? If so, what resolution will you be gaming at?

Furthermore, what are your plans for a hard drive and/or SSD?

Moreover, PSU is overkill, for that system anything over 600 watts is a waste

Well my budget is as cheap as i can go basically. However, i think it's a "cheap" computer for what i'm getting & the fact that i should be able to run everything i want with extra power. Around $900 give or take $60.

I didn't add the HDD because i didn't think i needed to list it. I put a WD 750g 64mb cache with 7200rpm.

The resolution i'm running at is 1680x1050 on a 22" (I think) monitor. There's no more need for a larger VR card at the resolution as far as i know.

I used to work in 3D graphics but i mostly just use my computer for games now. However, i love to multi-task (games, several browers, music, movie, ect) so a quad would be very nice for me.

And i was trying to go with a PSU that had good reviews rather then a lower watt one with crappy reviews.

alright, with that resolution you indeed don't need a more potent graphics card, so that's fine.

Seems like a nice machine.

Yes he does if he wants to play with the highest IQ and 60fps.

Care to elaborate on that? A GTX 560 should be able to run almost everything on high no? The benchmark for it isn't that far from the top cards.

And i also updated the PSU, i accidently added the wrong name and link before.

GTX 560 sans ti is a GTX 460 re badged and it is not near the top cards in anything but price what a waste.
