    Hey guys,
    I'm looking to buy a new system, most of one that is. I have a hard drive, optical drive, and case. So I'm looking for a new proc, motherboard, PS, ram, and video card(s).

    I've always been a fan of AMD and Gigabyte, but I'm open to any suggestions you all may have.

    I'd like to get all this stuff for around 600. I'd mainly be gaming on it.

    CPU: i3-2120 or i3-2100
    GPU: GTX 460 (For Small Screen) OR AMD 6950 (For 1080p Screen)
    PSU: 650 Corsair TX OR 750 Corsair TX
    Mobo: Anything around the $100 price range (P67 Or H67)
    Case: Just get a decent case with ventilation and some fans to keep hardware cool
    Ram: 8GB 1333mhz or 1600mhz

    If you don't overclock i3-2120 or 2100 would be the best choice. If you do overclock get the 2500k and get a p67 board (around 100 range) and you will be set to go. I built my computer around $580 ish, but that is because I bought a couple of my parts used at an extremely good deal.

    I've got a case, and I have an OS, how good is that board with overclocking?
