This build would cost me $800, but I'm willing to spend $1,000 on the desktop. I have decided to get a new desktop and get rid of my xbox 360. I will be playing all my games like BF3 and Crysis 2 games that require a lot.

First just to see what you think of this monitor

BenQ RL2450HT 24" LED LCD Monitor $199.99

Ok now the desktop:

Case: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001RD $119.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 $84.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-970 $104.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: (Which comes free with the motherboard) G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) saved $39.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: GrGIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB $239.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: CORSAIR HX Series HX750 $119.99 after $25.00 rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA $84.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DVD: LITE-ON Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive $19.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also I found that the AMD CPU had a bad stock cooling so
CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 $29.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


I plan on being able to use this system for years and be able to upgrade. I figured that in the long run this would be worth it, because I can play the same games as on my xbox 360 and still use my controller of pc games.

Thanks for any input!
