Putting together a new gaming rig, trying to keep it under $1000. Tell me what you guys think, and if I've screwed up anywhere, or if I should change something. Thanks :D

I wouldn't trust that power supply, you should get a CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W which is far more better and efficient. I have heard to many horror stories with failing Hitachi hard drives, you should get a Western Digital Caviar Black WD1502FAEX 1.5TB 7200 RPM.

That power supply is a horrible, horrible turd made by "Deer" and a classic example of why you do not trust Newegg reviews. Newegg has idiots write reviews also.

Oklahoma Wolf does a nice write up here: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=65

Ditto on the WD Black drive.

Beg/borrow/steal another $30 for a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

Might want to pony up for a 2X4gig memory setup now instead of later.

If I was building a gaming rig, I would not use an AMD CPU/mobo at this time.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

The one dpunisher mentioned is the K version which allows you to overclock like a mad man.

I would go for AMD now, contrary to other members opinions, but, only with 990FX motherboards and only if you intend to upgrade to Bulldozer. Otherwise, hold off. If you are gaming, as in wanting upcoming AAA titles like Skyrim or Deus Ex, you may want to consider a Radeon 6850 or better.

It's the OP's choice on either waiting for the new AMD Bulldozer's CPU to come out. We'll see if the long awaited Bulldozer really can go up against Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture.

you know it really comes down to the person building
do you wait for vaporwarez? or get what you can buy today with cash?

while the amd bulldozer may be amazing, it really has a very slim chance of
offering performance in the range of the current 1155 socket cpu's, and as the second generation
arrives for them, well it will be once again all intel if you want fast performance.

Now, having said that, AMD still offers some really sweet speed for the bucks spent!
Im a fan of the 1090 chip my self, how can you NOT LIKE 6 cores of rocking fast speed?
yeah yeah bulldozer blah blah, don't expect you will see much difference for the average consumer on these two
side by side. if you are a bleeding edge power user MAYBE, the rest of us, get the cheaper chip in a motherboard
that offers support for the bulldozer down the line, and enjoy some hexacore fragging
You, yes YOU! STAND STILL WITH IT! How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

No one really knows what Bulldozer will do, though AMD's in-house slides say they are aiming for i7-2600k, that doesn't mean they will hit it. The older 1366, not 1155, i7's are still king of the performance ladder until Intels 2011 sockets are out. I wouldn't be surprised if Bulldozer matches the 1155's, but the higher-end 1366's would be a more difficult goal indeed. If you're a gamer it really doesn't make a difference if you go Phenom II, Sandy Bridge i7, or i5 since most processing takes place on the GPU anyway with those titles. In other words, there will be no hexacore fragging simply becuase no game can use all six cores, few can even effectively use four.

You need a almighty powerful GPU, maybe 4 6970 :crazy:

I was just saying to go amd since his other option was only an i5 if he was going to get an i7 I would go intel but since he wasn't I still think amd is better unless he wants to put out the cash for that i7.....ditto on the gpu though

It's not worth the money for investing one the Sandy Bridge i7 because it won't make a big difference, it's really good for heavily threaded applications. So stick with the i5.
