this is my first build and would like to be able use this one for a few years and have options for improvement availeble. I'm also thinking of waiting till ivy bridge so the price of sandy wil drop. I'm going to take the dvd reader from my old computer.
Is that Graphics card what you want? Google for a 6770 review or even 6870, but 6450? Also, why i5 and "P" Motherboard? Maybe look into the i3 2100 with a Z68 motherboard. This motherboard would provide an upgrade path. Enjoy!
i dont think he nessisarily needs "at least a hd 6850" for gaming.. it dpends on what settings some people dont need everything maxed out on a 30 inch monitor.. there are cheaper ones that could probably do just fine for him. hell even the 6450 is usable for the most part.
