I just wanted some advice on this build, if the parts are compatible, and if there is a better part for less money available.


Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB)

Corsair Carbide Series 500R

EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 2048 MB GDDR5


Corsair Enthusiast 650W

Asus 24xDVD-RW

Samsung 830 series 64GB

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB

i5 2500K

The current cost is $1000 and I would like to keep it in that range.

Approximate Purchase Date: (Around Christmas. Yes, I know this is a long way away, I just want to do a ton of research to make sure i can get the best out of this PC)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (Gaming, Movies, Internet)

Parts Not Required: (keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (Amazon/Newegg)

Country: US

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (Intel CPU and ASUS Mobo)

Overclocking: Later, I will be buying a Coolermaster 212 after the build is completed and OC the CPU to 4.5Ghz

SLI or Crossfire: Again, later once i have enough money to purchase a new video card
