I'm new to the whole PC building and I was wondering if the following would work...
AMD Phenom X6 1100T cpu
MSI 990FXA-GD80 mobo (reason: This gives the opportunity to get the FX series if windows fully optimizes the cores in win8 or new drivers and has a splendid bios setup that I found to be very easy to navigate and operate)
(2x2GB) 4GB Corsair Vengence RAM (reason: will be getting more come birthday)
1x WD 1.5TB black caviar 6.0gb/s 7200rpm
LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (reason: will SLI soon)
COOLER MASTER HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (reason: looks sick and cheap with excellent air flow)
1x 200mm (red LED) COOLERMASTER fan (reason: looks even better on the case and cheaper than the haf 922)
Im aware of the fact that intel is better and don't need to hear it may consider an intel build next time
Well, if you thinking in going for SLI/Crossfire in the future, doesn't worth to get a 650w now, and maybe a 750w in the future. You really should spend $20 bucks more to upgrade the PSU now. Since in the future you would need to spend a full PSU price.
