This will be a Windows 7 PC that will be used for typical home use and occasional gaming with the likes of Skyrim (probably no more than 10 hours per week will be spent gaming). I actually have $850 to spend (and this exceeds that by about $5.00 due to shipping), but any cost saving measures would be appreciated (first time build here). Also, I prefer to stick with Newegg because I am familiar with them. Finally, I already have a copy of Windows 7 and 4x4 GB of Crucial DDR3 1333 RAM.

PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 750W Modular Gaming 80Plus Bronze Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom $99.99

HDD: Seagate Barracuda Green ST1000DL002 1TB 5900 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Bare Drive -Bare Drive $69.99

Thank you all very much for your help.

that HDD green will hold overall performance since it is only 5900 rpm

find a standard 7200rpm and the rest are already fine :)

750W is overkill for that system. Here is one $10 cheaper, is still actually overkill, but is a ridiculous deal for that quality that it is. I would actually take it over the 750W you listed. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That HDD is more of a data drive. I would not use it as a primary drive as it will be slower. I would go with this one. It is the same price after $10 off code.

The rest of your system looks good. If you plan to overclock, I would get a better than stock cooler. This one will be the best for your money.

us.ncix has free shipping and price matching. so, just price match the CPU and the motherboard from them, buy the things that are the cheapest at us.ncix, and then you can get the rest at newegg. saves yourself on shipping

and if you ask me, us.ncix has better support for their customers
