If something in here isn't compatible or there is a better deal tell me please. Everything on here is from NewEgg.com More about : build Illumina August 8, 2012 4:06:05 AM Yes, that's a good build. You'll be able to run high or ultra on all current games with that without issue. However, I don't see a power supply unit (PSU) in there. Grab one of these, excellent quality and fully modular (meaning you won't have to deal with a huge mass of cable clutter). Also, I'm not sure what your budget is, but I'd highly recommend a solid state drive as your boot drive. m 0 l the matias August 8, 2012 4:33:23 AM My, Bad, thanks for pointing that out, PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom $89.99 m 0 l Related resources FIRST EVER BUILD $700 -Help needed - Forum Please help with my first ever build - Forum First ever build need HELP.
