APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Sometime within the month, keep the price around $300 w/o rebate.

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Heavy gaming for games like BF3, Planetside 2, etc.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: No current GPU for my build I have selected, Power: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU will be a FX-4350 once it comes out

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference really, an XFX 7950 was my primary before it went out of stock.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, once it slows down in a few years.

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Depends on what you guys think.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

Really just need another option in case the card I have selected now dosent come back into stock when I get enough money piled together (~$900) to buy my build.

Suggestions? ;)

Also, no mobo atm, because I haven't picked one for the FX-4350 yet. If you guys want to suggest me one too, then that would be great :D  Around $60 if you are going to suggest me a mobo.

That build doesn't seem like the best use of your money.... you could get a better psu for less, also I still think intel is going to be the gamer's choice for CPU abd you'll probably want to spend more than $60 on a mobo....

$900 is a reasonable amount, Im not from the US but someone here should be able to draw you up a more balanced build....Have you any recyclable parts from previous builds, hard drives etc?

The 7950 is a good choice, I presume it was the double d you were going for? It should be available elsewhere if not on newegg... if not there are other decent options like MSI or gigabye etc so wouldnt worry too much..

I actually got the build from someone on here XD Well let me ask for a better build, but I think I will stick with AMD. Intel's are too expensive and I will have to compromise other things for that price.
