Hey guys Im new to posting in these forums so please don't flame me if I do something wrong.

So basically I've been researching different parts for a build I wanted to make, and I think I have it down. I just want to clear it and make sure I'm not missing anything and I also wanted to see other peoples opinions and alternatives in case there's anything better out there, while staying in my budget.

I also decided to give the format for the *How To Ask For New Build Advice* post a shot in case it would help any.

Heres the link to my wish list, what do you guys think?

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...



Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as I get the required funding ( Monday or Tuesday hopefully)

Budget Range: ~1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and Movies

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Nothing particular as long as it has decent quality

Overclocking: Maybe in the future

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future

Monitor Resolution: Not sure, wiring to my 1080p hdtv

Additional Comments: Need to have a window and lots of bling - lol. I prefer full tower cases.

No, you have a amd chip,for gaming not good. I would get either an i3-2120 or i5 2500k depending on budget and a intel asus sabertooth.

Here's a build that goes overbudget, but includes an awesome GPU, great CPU. Have a look:

CPU & Optical Drive: $226- i5-2500K & Asus(Great CPU,beats every single AMD CPUs)

Motherboard & HDD: $135- Biostar TZ77B & Samsung Spinpoint 500GB(Get this before the shell shocker deal of HDD goes away)

GPU: $400- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102986]EVGA GTX 670[/urlExt](Great Card for it's price, you won't be needing another one for the foreseeable fututre)

PSU & RAM: $95- Corsair CX500 & Corsair Vengeance 8GB(Use promo code to get 10% off, also 500Watt PSU is more than enough for this setup)

Case: $40- NZXT Source 210 (or whatever you like)

OS: $69- Windows 7 Home premium SP1 64bit

SSD: $95- OCZ Agility 120GB (has $20 rebates)

Total(Excluding Rebates, promos): 1060 USD

Rebates, Promos: $35

If this goes overbudget, dowgrade the GPU to Radeon 7850 worth $250. Save $150.

Also if you decide to add another GPU, upgrade the PSU/RAM, aloong with Motherboard/HDD combo to this :
$108- CM GX650 & Patriot Gamer 8GB( 650 wattshuold be more than enough for supporting two 7850))

$195- Asrock Z77 Extreme4 & Samsung Spinpoint 500GB(A good motherboards that supports SLI/Crossfire)
