    So that motherboard and power supply have better quality? thought i should just get the cheapest ones :p
    Also, with the case I was trying to go with has 3 casefan's included. that was my main reason for getting it (and also has alot of good reviews to be a very quiet case with good airflow) or is the case you suggested better? :D

    I got 2 sticks of 2gb each, a total of 4. Thats like the average a human needs right?
  10. well 8 gigs is more useful today for gaming, but ur budget only permits 4gigs, can always add more later.

    but if u can afford it now id get a 8 gig kit now.

  14. no problem anytime my friend :)
  15. Any reason you are going with a last gen card over something like the 7850 or GTX 660? Also i think you would be better off with an I3 over that Phenom, or maybe get the i5 3470(that might be out of budget though)... I don't have time to put together a build right now but you might want to think about it.
