? What's wrong with your current computer. *Reading "System"*
post #3 of 5
Here is a good system in my opionon. The Video card is one of last years fastest single gpu gaming cards. Good overclocking performance on the memory for a good price. The mainboard is a solid performer if not overly special but does not cost an amrm and a leg. The processor is a great little performer. The case is the entry level award winning HAF model. And the power supply is from the award winning enthusiast line from corsair.

Also you will want to order some memory or chipset heat sinks for the VRM's on the board if you plan to overclock much.

^ Last build above should do but please don't pair that 5850 with a CX500!

I'm also a bigger fan of this case for the same price
