If it's going to take time to put together a computer financially then get the components with the least amount of time sensitivity. I would say since your building the machine primarily for gaming the most time senitive component is the GPU. The CPU would definitely be on the top of that list but the CPU is taking a further and further backseat in importance. A 4GHZ AMD will definitely be fine. Things like the case and psu would be fine to purchase now.

I have been looking at motherboard combos on tigerdirect.com and the fasted one they have is a 4.4ghz amd I am going to have to save for that I am looking to put 2 grand into this when done. and a 850 watt power supply should be plenty to run everything.

Welcome to TPU!
I think you may consider:

**PSU, Video Cards are getting less power hungry mother after model, so 600W 80+plus certified PSU would be fine, would last more than 3 years with you,
**Case can be with you till the end of time if you get the right one, with right space to put what you would get, take the time and compare, decent air flow and space are a must.
***Motherboard, processor, Ram , Video Card and SSD/ HDD, this its going to be the most expensive card on your build, look for opportunities, rebates and sales if you don’t have much money,
***Peripherals , do you have your mouse, keyboard and headset? this is important but not necessary for example I started my build and left this for the final part,

A 4.0GHz Amd processor will be power hungry, they also come with a stock cooler that are not so good, you may replaced it with water or Aftermarket Air cooler, intels processors are a little less power hungry and quite cooler compared to some of AMD big sharks processors, but the advantage of AMD it’s the socket conservation they do, intel in the other hand doesn't re-use that much a socket,


How much it's your money for it, what are you buying first?

its really worth the V8, with a little more you can get a AIO, like Corsair H60/70, Thermaltake Water 3.0Performer, Antec Kulher H2O or Coolermaster Seidon 120V, they perform pretty well,


Save up to get everything at once. Maybe you'll find a bundle to get everything cheaper.
the better advice you would get… but if your budget will not be enough don’t worry, you can still your plan.
looking for bundles could be nice too, also some stores make bundles to get rid of some old generation processors or parts,


Intel. Overclocking is unnecessary these days.
Truth has been spoken...

Those chips are terrible in Skyrim. That and Total War pretty much require Intel.

liquid cooling I have no idea how to install so I guess I stick with the normal heatsink and fan I go with the cooler master hyper 212 much better size and not as big as the cooler master V8

With most of the newer AIO (All In One) liquid cooling solutions; they are as easy to install as the higher end air cooling solutions. They have come a long way in the last 4 or 5 years. :peace:

Oh the Hyper 212 is one of the best and cheapest air coolers to be had! Works fantastic. I have my 3770K (stock clocks) Crunching on World Community Grid at 100% and it never raises over 60C at full load.
I do have the cooler running in a push/pull configuration with two fans.
I have read they don't do near as good running a single fan. If you do decide to grab the Hyper 212 be sure to get the kit with two fans. It makes a world of difference. :toast:

installing a AIO liquid cooling solution kit it's going to similar to the Hyper 212 EVO,
the unique difference its to mount or install Rad and Fans, but it's not going to be something pretty hard…
