hey everyone I'm brand new to building my own gaming desktop I've been looking around on newegg.com which is a great help but i don't know if i should buy a bundle and just improve some features like the memory or video card or should i look for them separate and should i use intel or amd because intel seems to cost more i have these selected so far i need feed back on what i should replace or if i should bundle and then upgrade

550ti is low/mid end.

520 is low end
550ti
560 is mid-end
560ti
570 and 580 is high end

You should be able to get 45-60fps in GW2 on a 550ti, but I would suggest spending some more for a 560.

would it be better if found all the parts separately and found a different power supply and hard disk or get bundle and buy better ones this is based on shipping pricing(so it doesn't cost more buying separate)

Well if you find a different bundle with a good power supply and hard drive then yes. I would suggest finding smaller bundles with like 2 or 3 items.

560 se is only slightly better than the 550ti.

Get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Only slightly more when you add in the mail in rebate to the mix.

Might as well spend $5 on the i3-2120.

Spend like 3 more dolalrs on this sexy RAM with the same speed: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Get this power supply instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's an unboxing of the ti version of the 560 you chose: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn1Vw8JPtS4&feature=plcp
Just to see how it looks etc.

Might want to get this case for the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Only downside is that there's no 2.5 bays, but you're not getting a SSD. Also the one I chose has 2 fans, your's has 1.
