I'm looking to play all modern games and old school games as well.
Watch most movies also but going to build a lil raspberry pi media center.
I would like to max out as many games as i can but may not be in my budget.
Thanks for any help you guys can give me.
Here are the parts that im looking to use.
Graphics: im questioning this field all together let me know what will work best for what im wanting to use. Just to name a few idea's.
Zotac GeForce GT 610 Synergy Edition ZT-60601-10L Video Card - 2GB DDR3, PCI-Express 2.0(x16)
PNY VCGGTX550TVXPB GeForce GTX 550 Ti Video Card - 1024MB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16)

Get the X4 965 BE or the FX-4300/6300 if you want an amd cpu.
700w is overkill, and a oem psu...get a decent psu from brands like antec,xfx,corsair,fsp,ocz(usually the cheapest) with 500-600w.
If you want to play games, the obvious choice is a 660 gtx on the list.
what would be a better low cost graphics card to run new games on other than the gtx 660 was going with geforce because i wanted to use splashtop thd on my tablet for gaming when im away form my pc but if i can get one that works just as well for cheaper i will. thanks again guys
so out of these which do you think i should go with for best performance.
Galaxy GeForce GTX 660 GC 66NPH7DN6ZVZ Video Card - 2GB GDDR5
HIS Radeon HD 7850 IceQ X H785QN1G2M Video Card - 1GB GDDR5
MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr N660 TF 2GD5 Video Card - 2GB GDDR5
also would this one be good as a for now card till i can afford the bigger better card.
Zotac GeForce GT 610 Synergy Edition ZT-60601-10L Video Card - 2GB DDR3
thank you once again. I am a bit new at building my own pc but i find this forum to be great thank you very much again. im just wanting to make sure i buy everything that will work best together and have great performance
the budget isn't to big of a deal im buying one piece at a time but i will say that as far as the graphics card goes i want to spend $400 or less. trying to get the best bang for my buck and not have to worry about upgrading for a while. i'm in the u.s as well.
thanks much cball1311. if i may ask why do you suggest the amd fx 8350 8 core.
will it help with multitasking and better gaming? but i will take all of that into thought.
that is a great price for all the items on the list.
