Well I need a monitor, keyboard, and mouse as well as a system for under $1000. Sorry for not specifying earlier. And I can't see the links you posted trying making them public wish lists and then post the link. I don't want this rig to be overkill. Can anyone post a Phenom configuration or i5 2500K config that's under $1000 with the specififications?

You have to link each item, LOL. Kind of a pain in the ass sometimes, but that's how it's done.

Just put the temporary wishlist items into a saved wishlist. Should like like 2 seconds. Then take the ending number in the url of the wishlist. Something like 133434343 for example and place it after the "number= "on the link below.

"http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=(Place number from saved wishlist here)"

"http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=17252026" - Example

i3-2100 with a true cooler? lol.. on the srs note, you should get 2500k with that mobo. You don't even need an aftermarket cooler if you choose to go that way. everything else is what others have said.

Here's your link man. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=16092632

Anyways I'll just go with 2500K but I fear I'll go over budget. I've been hearing that the Phenom II X4 955 doesn't fair as well as a i3 2100 in gaming. Why wouldn't a need a heatsink for a 2500K by the way?

It depends on the game, if the game supports 4 cores then the x4 will beat it, if the game doesn't then the overclocked i3 will.

However, quads are pretty much the standard in gaming rigs now.

Okay. For the important question, then:

What would you prefer: more processing power or more graphics power? If you want more gaming performance and are willing to sacrifice in terms of performance in computing, you can drop down to a Deneb build so you can include the peripherals and the monitor.

Since it's for $1000, I think it'd be good if you go for a 1920x1080 monitor.

With that in mind, here's my new revised build:

Lite-On DVD+RW Drive: $20

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58W: $70

Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB: $55

ASUS VH242H 1080p Monitor: $180

ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 $140

Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 $200

Antec TruePower New 650W: $80

G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600MHz 1.5V: $50

AMD Phenom II X4 925: $115

: $30

Subtotal: $930
Total: $955

Peripherals should be about $100 on top. If you want to save money, you can get a non-Bulldozer compatible motherboard like the ASUS M4A79XTD EVO. That will save you $40. Another alternative is to drop down to a Radeon HD 6850, saving you $30. You could also opt for a cheaper case and save around $30 there.
