I just wanted to throw my specs and stuff out there and get feed back because im always looking to improve. So i guess the best way to do that is list my system and specs and see what everyone thinks.

CASE: Rosewill Destroy ATX Mid-Tower

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 960T 3.0 GHz (O.C to 3.4GHz and stable)

MOBO: ASRock M3A770DE (Socket AM3)

GRAPHICS CARD: HIS Radeon HD 6770

POWER SUPPLY: Raid Max RX-530SS Modular

RAM: 8GB Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 1600

HDD: Hitachi 500 GB 7500 RPM

DISC DRIVE: LITE-ON 24X DVD writter

UPGRADES:

CPU COOLER: COOLER MASTER Hyper TX3

SPEAKERS: Logitech S-220 2.1 Surround Sound




Feel free to critque in anyway i know a decent amount about computers and im always looking to learn more.

I would spend the extra 7 Dollars for the CM 212+ HSF or the 212 EVO, You will get way better cooling for only a few extra dollars

I cannot evauate the AMD part of your system, but ...

Get a better PSU. Raidmax PSU's, while not total junk, tend to be overrated and have difficulty delivering rated power.

I prefer Samsung and LG optical drives to Lite-On. That is admittedly based on a sample of one. I bought one Lite-On drive. It failed in 9 months. I have bought about a dozen Samsung and LG drives over the past few years. They are all still happily running.

Thanks for the feed back but ive already bought and built the system it was on a tight budget... the entire thing was under $600 so if that gives you any idea.
