I'm actually doing my first build and trying to get away from console gaming. I ordered most of my hardware from newegg and most of it should be coming in today, but I haven't decided on a case or graphics card yet. I'm would like to have my resolution at 1920x1080. Below is the everything I have so far.
AMD Phenom x4 955 Black Edition (I'm going to overclock to 3.8GHz)
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ board
Arctic Cooler Freezer 13
Antec Earth Watts Series EA-750
Kingston HyperX XMP Blu Red Series 16GB (2x8GB)
ASUS Black Blu-ray Drive SATA Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS
Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002
As far as the case goes, I'm leaning towards the Antec Three Hundred Two or the Cooler Master HAF 912. I don't know if I want to run a SSD or not. The fast boot time is definitely a plus in favor of an SSD. Funds running low is the main reason why I might not get a SSD.
