    For this build you would need 3x2gb ddr3 ram to run in triple channel.

    you should go with a 5850 reference card instead of 5830

    change that 600W PSU to a Corsair 750TX

    Are you in the US? Where are you buying your parts? There are certainly improvements to be made. First, if you are going with an i7, you really want a 6GB triple channel kit. Second, if you ever plan on overclocking, you really want an after market cooler. Yes, that PSU will be fine, though there are better options.

    hello , thx for help
    yes i can buy more 2GB gskill ,
    after market do u mean a fan for the processor ? if yes i can get one i think
    what other improvements do u suggest ? + yes the Asus have a OC program with them so i will overclock but not too much ill OC memory card from 800 to 900 and from 1000 mhz to 1150-1200 but i never OC anything before so i need your opinion about that plz :)

    ok for 5850will cost me another 42 $
    the power supply option here is seasonic x power supply 750W which will cost me another 54 $
    Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2 Retail for prossecor will cost 34$

    My $.02

    Cooler: generic cpu cooler for s1366 Change this even if you're not OCing, it will run cooler
    Memory: DDR3 1600 ‏2x2GB G.Skill ECO Edition Dual Channel Triple Channel to get the most out of the 920
    Power Supply : OCZ Gmaexstream 600W You should be fine but a 750W would be recommended in the event that you add another video card

    ;)

    please answer where you are located, if outside the US maybe provide us a link to the retail outlet you are using;)

    With that info, the members here will do some shopping for you and see if they cant build you the rig cheaper, or with more bang for your buck.

    @ zithe...I think he meant $50 more than his previous choice;)

    Hmmm, what are you going to use this computer for? If you are gaming, then a i5 750 is more than enough, or perhaps consider a Phenom II 965BE. Seasonic power supplies are good.

    ^^ +1 to i5 750 or PII 965BE...If you are just a gamer, this is more than enough.

    everything looks great
    i can't see just running 4 gb of memory being much of a problem to be honest
    what operating system are you going to be running ? i'e windows xp /vista /7 ?

    and welcome to techPowerUp :)

    the only reason we say something about the mem is he can go triple channel with the 920 and get alittle more out of it.

    you chose speedy system, but there is something important missing which is fast read from disk, so that's mean 2 HDD's in raid 0 or one SSD with HDD

    u guys r helping me a lot ty ! :D

    its going to be running on windows 7
    my bro will buy me a 2gb memory like1-2 month later so its not a prob
    what i did is replace some parts just to reduce the cost a bit :

    power supply : seasonic 750w ss-750km x-750 retail to seasonic M12D 750,750w which saves 23$
    and from artic cooling freezer 7 pro rev 2 to artic cooling freezer 7 cp which saves 14$
    but the parts are still good i think :)

    the thing about the disk i didnt understand very well
    but in this cooler master its so easy to add new hard disk so this also i can put a bit later if u think it can wait
