Hi, this is my second post in TPU and also my first time building a computer. I just want to know if everything is compatible and if it will fit in the ATX casing that i chose, and if the power supply is sufficient to run everything. My budget is around the lower 700ish :) Thanks. Suggestions are welcomed too! Thanks again.

Everything looks good. If you can swing it, grab a 5770 instead. It is a MUCH better card and only $99 after MIR.

And do you already have a HDD and a copy of Windows? You don't have them listed.

And if you aren't dead set on an Intel setup, this AMD combo at NewEgg is your price range and IMHO a MUCH better setup.

Oh the reason Im getting that video card is b/c its so cheap, and double bang for the buck $60 after rebate with newegg promo code - $13 totalling $47!!! <---- lols so hard to resist.
Thanks for suggest and fast reply!

Yeah, i have a hdd, but deciding if I should go ssd instead just to run windows 7...



*Wow i agree that AMD combo looks great and bang for the buck,

ohhh i didnt know the mobos r very expencive :( i would still push it,, would last longer u know,,, im happy with my phenomII but knowing that i could of chosen i7 920 but didnt,,i regret it a bit,,i mean two years past,, and now im playing cod black ops and i7 920 would be giving me an extra 10fps at same ghz,,approximately, and it can clock higher.. well u get the idea :0) cheers

what if, phenomIIx4 3.2ghz $140 ,amd motherboards are cheaper, add the savings towards ait 5850 which would be about twice as fast vs 4850,, overclocks better too,,should be better computer overall,, more balanced
