So, this is what I have come up with this far. I welcome any and all feedback and my biggest question at this point is, can my case house this stuff? Its not the prettiest case but if it saves me $100 so be it.
MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2 GHz
SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB
Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W
I really have no idea on power supply, is this enough? Also what is CrossFire as I've seen it mentioned here numerous times...edit..I think I learned it, its just being able to hook up 2 vid cards right?
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
SAMSUNG HD754JJ 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
I don't need much space, don't do much with photos/videos/music/etc....just games
ASUS VH235T-P 23" 5ms widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD
And of course Windows 7 64 bit.
Like I said, I am brand new at this so if you see something that sucks or if I would be overpaying for brand x when brand y is just as good but cheaper then let me know. Many thanks to all that offer advice, great forum you have here.
