Hi all, I have purchased a new system today that will be my first (own) homebuild.. The total cost of the system outlined below was £680. I would like to know whether any, more informed buyers think that it is a good choice of components for the money! Probably should of asked this before I purchased but I'm too impatient!! Any feedback much appreaciated :)

Coolermaster GX 650W PSU

Asrock M3A770DE 770 Socket AM3 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Socket AM3 8MB Cache 125W

looks good to me, i think the 955 CPU is a lot cheaper for the sake of +100Mhz or something but youre still going to be able to max any current game on that.

here in the UK the difference is only £2.50 or so beetween the 955 and 965 so its worth it getting the 965.

id drop the extra 40-50$ so you can upgrade to bulldozer in a few years. other than that pretty good

I know, I was going to go down the sandybridge route actually but I doubt I will be upgrading for a fairly long time except maybe extra gfx card/water cooling/more memory/better power supply so the most value for money was more paramount than upgradeability!
