Hi to all of you. I'm new to building systems and a friend of mine said that he would help me once i have all the components in my house. So I'm looking for a system $700 tops, so the pieces I choose are this:
Antec Gaming Series One Black Steel ATX Mid Tower
XFX Double D Black Edition FX-777A-ZDB4 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0
the intel i3-2100 is a better buy. if not the i3 one of the gxx 1155 cpu. the intel cpu are better for gaming and all around tasks. just google i3 vs amd and you see the reviews of many amd chips vs intel. i3 and for the sub 100 cpu that intel was the better buy.
I just noticed you have a 990FX board, so I assume you plan to Crossfire/SLI at some point. If so, then I would suggest getting a little heftier PSU to ensure you have enough power later on. Something like:
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply - $80 after rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Antec NEO ECO 620C 620W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - $75 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
