I'd love to get your opinions. Go ahead and give me any ideas or critiques you want :) 
This'll be a computer I'll use for gaming.

CPU: AMD fx 4100 -- $80
Motherboard: ASUS m5a97 -- $55
PSU: Corsair CX600 600W -- $70
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB @ 7200rpm -- $70
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (4x2) -- $40
Case: Rosewill Challenger Black mid-tower -- $50
GPU: EVGA GTX 650ti GDDR5 -- $157

Total Price: $512

I'm happy with the price that I've come up with. If you have any recommendations I would prefer you don't get TOO carried away :)  (you know, don't suggest I get an i7-3770k! :kaola:  )

But for overall stability of the computer I'll definitely listen. I've got not problem managing my computers so this shouldn't be a problem.


Oh, and if you're wondering why the CPU and Motherboard are so cheap, it's because I'm buying them from Micro Center which is about a 15 minute drive from here.

Seems alright, but I would rather have a FX4170 and a Radeon HD7770 instead personally.

What's the biggest advantage of the 7770? I've seen that a lot of people have them and a friend of mine got the 7770 a few months back.

See, the 650Ti is faster, but its not faster by enough to justify the $20-30 jump in performance. That's why I would rather recommend the 7850.

Yeah, but the 7850 is a bit on the pricey side. I'd rather keep the GPU price to be sub-$170 if at all possible.
