I'm thinking about building my own gaming comp for the first time, and I was wondering if the following components would be compatable and a good value.. I'm on a budget but I want to get the best for my dollar...


Case

Motherboard

GPU

Processor

RAM

Hard Drive

Disc Drive



Subtotal: $1,124.21


So any comments/tips would be very appreciated. thanks.

Looks real nice. What about mouse, keyboard, monitor and speakers?

thanks for all of the replies.. I already have a monitor,speakers, keyboard, and mouse from my last computer so I'm all set there.. Do you think the PSU will be enough power though?
