Dear Community,
[1] (1=PARAGRAPHS) (A=BUILD) (C=COMMENTS WHAT BUILD YOU THINK I SHOULD DO, WITH CRITERIA BELOW LISTED)
So I have a build I’m putting together, I think If some of you are oldies/veterans in this community, in the last year or so you’ve seen me posting a lot about this “build” I was putting together, and told me to shut my yap per you know who you are LOL) (while grammar checking I remember its outlander_04 I think), because it was as I said, a 6 month in the future dream. Well it’s been 6 months I have the money, and am ready to build. I have a build here, (GO TO [A] TO SEE IT) I would like you guys to sift through it and see if you see any flaws, verified it with a friend who works at a computer store, he said it looks ok, just want a second opinion, can’t hurt, LOL. Anyway here is the criteria for the build, it needs to be ~ 525$ Monitor excluded, mouse excluded, need a Keyboard though, along with the necessities RAM, OS,MOBO, GPU, GPU, CASE, DVD, HD, PSU, ETC.
Other needs, Must be from amazon.com so… if you’re a new egg fan boy, just find it on Newegg, go to Amazon, guarantee it will be ~ same price, if it is a little higher, I save money with prime, 1 day free shipping, and of course, FREE SHIPPING NO TAX, (Newegg has seen much better days IMO) and a worry free return policy, where I DON’T PAY FOR RETURNS, and THEY ARE AT FAULT, and I do NOT HAVE TO FILL OUT a “why did you need to return” blah. Secondly the CPU can be either brand, Intel Or AMD, I do not really care, so long as it is the best bang for the buck CPU, (current one is fx-4100) and the motherboard should be ~ 50$ because the fx/ GeForce 7025 I have listed is a 150$ CPU/MOBO and meets my needs, So basically I’m saying I want the best bang/buck CPU you can fit in a 525$ budget, (mouse through GPU -etc. etc.)
My needs are as follows, you’ll see with my WIN 7/ HD 6750 / FX-4100 bundle, it can handle COD4 MAXED/ MW2 MAXED / COD5 MAXED. So those are my needs as far as what games I need to handle, so really DON’T CHANGE MY CPU/GPU unless it’s better because those cards are what I need, my point is don’t shoot lower. Also I don’t care as to what your opinion is whether said CPU/GPU combination can max out said games, just don’t SHOOT LOWER, Fair enough, now Listen don’t go telling me “Don’t skimp out on a PSU it will fry your system”. Ignore your standards, I have been buying cheaper 400-600W PSU’s from Amazon for awhile, have had no problems, whatsoever. As long as the review on the PSU is above 3.8/5 stars off of Amazon, recommend it to me/ put it in your recommendation build.  Thanks a crap ton btw, for reading my HUGE rant. (Need games native resolution 1600x900 (STRESS, MEGA STRESS, I WANT a 4 CORE PROCESSOR, TO BE SEMI FUTURE PROOF, unless you seriously guarantee me otherwise, for ex. I don’t care if you recommend me the FX-4100 even though in a year or so it will only allow me to run games at say medium settings, I have very low standards, I have been playing Wow (no longer play btw), at 1366x768 low fps Configurations, and lowest settings all my life, at 10-20 fps, 6-12 fps in raids, and COD4 at 640x480 lowest low configurations as well. Also I know clock speed means *well not as much anyway* nothing anymore, so I’m aware of 3.2 GHz Intel i5, is faster than the FX 4100 with a 3.6ghz clock speed etc. etc. (Obviously due to my budget I am no way Insinuating I want/ and or can afford one, just saying I know something with more, for ex. LMB cache/faster is a faster CPU, regardless of clock speed. (THAT ALSO OBVIOSULY isn’t the only determining factor ha-ha) Finally NO REBAITS, besides I don’t think that Amazon.com has those, so thanks, and God Bless, and finally here is my build. P.S. win 7 is what I want. (The reason for the length of my rant as you’ll see at the bottom, I only have internet ~ once a day for ~ 2 minutes, I want to answer all, and I mean all stupid questions.

Is the RAM 2x4gb? What's the frequency?

Get a i3-2120 - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...

Links don't work.

I would suggest a slightly better graphics card, but it will make you go over budget. The i3 already makes you go over budget any ways...
