I would hold off a couple of months for a hard drive because the prices are way too high, I would probably get an 64gb ssd for now. This build performance is alot faster than that amd setup and is the start for a good media and gaming computer. The psu you choose will not be strong enough for a future cross fire or sli build.

This is a really good ssd that puts this current build at $615

In a building perspective look at your new system build under construction only use quaility parts. Intel sandy bridge cpu's are alot faster and the i5 2500k is the best cpu in it's price group for performance and overclocking. If you need an extra month or add extra 150$ to your build it would be well worth it. I hope I have helped you.

Thanks for the reply .....................

But what kind of list is that???? ive got the same ram on my list for cheaper... and i damn sure dont need an 850 watt psu the i5 is overated its good dnt get me wrong but for the price any AMD outways it and is to much for a build like this the MB is okay but the case looks like ***!!!!

again thx but that didnt help at all........ your advice on the ssd is correct but you over looked 2 things 1st with an OS on it your gonna eat up 30 gigs right off the bat 2nd if i go that rought ill lose the free cd/dvd drive?
