What's up guys, I will be getting about 1,500 dollars soon and I was looking to build a pc, so I went ahead a put one together, but I want to know what you guys think. I know the prices may change by the time I get the money, but that is ok. I will on be spending about 650-750 so don't say I could do more. Here is the build I have so far. http://icap.me/i/ppq5d4lomx.png I would like to get the prodigy case since I will be going to college this upcoming fall. Also this will be used mostly for gaming. Let me know what you guys think, if you want to give me a whole new build that's fine, I just want a pretty good gaming pc for around my budget.

Get a corsair cx500 PSU.

Everything else looks good.

I'd personally get the Seasonic S12 II instead of the CX500 but that would run a bit more. But yeah everything looks good to me.

Agreed, Seasonic over the CX500 anyday.

Here, this will max out any game, all set up as a pc, I don't know whether you need the wireless card or not but that is $1500 after MIR, if you want to save money, get the hd7950/7970 or gtx 670 and buy a ssd or something better.

I think AMD is offering some kind of double game coupon if you are buying their cards.

Depends on which card - I'm pretty sure the 7950 and 7970 / 7970GHZ edition have it, and I think the 7870 XT does as well.
