Advice on system build


Here's my outline. I've chosen most parts and wanted some critique

What is your budget?


What is your resolution?


What are you using it for?

Mostly gaming.

What is your upgrade cycle?


When do you plan on building it?

next 2 or 3 weeks

Do you plan on overclocking?


Do you need an Operating System?


Do you plan to add a second GPU for SLI or Crossfire?


Where are you buying your parts from?

  1. All looks OK. 4GB of ram is adequate for gaming, but RAM is so cheap, now, you just as well put in 2x4GB. Haven't had anything to do with that case, so I'm ASSUMING it's OK. I do note no optical drive?
