looks fine for the money you have..if you have a local micro center you may be able to get a bigger hd or better video card for the money. the only thing i add is look to switch the mb out to an h71 chipset..for a few dollars more you be able to drop in an ib chip or an ib version of the g line if intel comes out with one. depending on the price of the g chip the i3 2100 from micro center may be close. if you can drop the i3 in it help keep the gpu card from bottlenecking.
Ok well i updated my shopping cart and went with this
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Deneb 3.2GHz,G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333,RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V ,
MSI R6770-MD1GD5 Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5,
ASRock 760GM-GS3 AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard seagate 500gb 7200 rpm XCLIO 320 Black Finish Steel & Plastic & Brushed Aluminum Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Cas
AHHHH man im bad at this well atleast i have it written down on here but i went with the cpu kajabla posted amd x4
Yeah he gives people bad advice all the time. It's a shame really.
He even thinks a Sandy Bridge cpu at 2.7ghz would bottleneck a single gpu video card.
If you read Tom's "Best gaming cpu's for the money", you won't see a X4 955 in there. What you will see recommended is Pentium G and i3.
You'll see in most cases the Pentium G, which is a lot cheaper by the way, actually stay's with or beats a X4-955@4ghz, all the while using less than half the power and not requiring an aftermarket heatsink, AND has an upgrade path to Ivy Bridge.
