Is this for gaming? You can build a much better system for ~800.

The Twin Frozr is a better GPU, but this already came out at 820$ without coupons and rebates. It should get down to like 780$ after everything. This is a much better gaming system than a FX processor.

You don't need to spend anything near that sort of money for a solid gaming system, but you can if you like. However, it's hard for the Tom's community to recommend a build when you change the budget. Also worth considering is if you want to overclock or water-cool, use one GPU or multiple GPUs etc. Have a Google on those topics, you'll find plenty of info on them.

Best bet is to have a think about how much you're happy spending, then have a look around at what you think a good build would be for that budget. Then run it past us like you did above.

Top tip...Intel is better than AMD right now.

If you have unlimited budget then you have three choices:

1) fix a number that you say "I don't want to spend more than this, it's insane", and then we help you with a build with this new budget.

2) fix your priorities. If it is for gaming, then you may want to think if you want more than one monitor, etc. Then look for the prices of the stuff you want (we can also help) and buy that.

3) just make a list of all the possible parts a computer may have, and buy the most expensive option for each part.

I guess 1) and 2) make much more sense. You can spend the rest of your money on something else, like food or charity.
