This is my first time attempting to build a PC. It will primarly be a gamer. I did some research but not to much so if you would take a look at what I have here and let me know what I can change to make it better and maybe even save a few dollars. The case is missing because I intend on going with a water cooled system just haven't looked into which one I want yet. Thanks for your input!
A little info for you.
1 the "secure" in the newegg adress means we cant see it
2 I'm sure you know that that chip wont fit on the gigabyte board.
3 S754 is older tech. It may be right for you, if you dont OC, and you dont plan on replacing the chip in a year or two.
4 The s939 venice core chips are better because they have better memory controler, SSE3 support ( okay so that's not a big deal ), and come on 90 nano tech, that runs cooler, and is a little better developed.
5 IMNSHO the X800XL is a better gfx card, but check with the guys in the graphics forum, they know better than me.
6 Come to think of it, I dont much like seasonic or Aopen much either.
7 I'm not usually this negative, is it true that men can get pms to?
Well thanks for the little bit of help! But I guess I should just start off with this question for this board. What is the best bang for my buck for a gamer cpu? Please give me a little more info about what one to look at I haven't quiet figured out the numbers jargon yet. BTW I did have the right cpu for that board but then changed it and the board but I guess it being so late by the time I got off of here I was a little delirious! Thanks again...
Look @ some screenies of the AOE3 demo. There is a HUGE diff between 2 and 3. Its not that SM2.0 cards cant do the same thing with 2.0b but nvidia is making developers program better looking content for 3.0
There will be a lot more games like this released soon.
Oh and just for the record i have an x800xl so its not like i'm spouting bs here.

If you do not plan on OCing, or upgrading the chip, get the s754 setup. Check with the graphics forum about gfx cards, they know better than the guys here.
I would recommend a fortron source or enermax psu over the seasonic.
Since the s754 boards do not have dual channel, a single 1 gigabyte stick of ram would be fine.
