New Computer Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to make a new computer mine is kind of old and want something faster for the up-coming games like Guild Wars 2 or Diablo 3

I'm thinking of the bull dozer or might go Intel i5 2500 cause it seems the popular choice.

I'm wondering what you think the price will be of the bull dozer and if it is expensive i guess the price of the cpu will drop?

My time frame is a month or so. I'm thinking of buying parts that I see that are having a 'hot' sale and should buy it.

CPU: ***
Motherboard: ***

RAM:
2x4gb G.Skill Sniper or Corsair Vengence DDR3 - Will buy at $60 (is that a 'hot deal' for that ram?)

GRAPHICS:
ATI 6850 - $140 (would this price be a 'hot deal'?)
GTX 560 - $160 (would this price be a 'hot deal'?)
MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit - $200 (would this price be a 'hot deal'?)

Cooler:
CM 212+ - $20 (would this price be a 'hot deal'?)
Scythe Mugen 2 - $25 (would this price be a 'hot deal'?)

Power Supply:
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W - $90 (would this price be a 'hot deal'?)

SSD:
I'm thinking OCZ, it seems cheap but effective and am looking at $150*after MIR for a 120GB Vertex 2
(would this price be a 'hot deal'?)


HDD:
I'm thinking any brand but looking for a $60 for a 2TB Drive
(would this price be a 'hot deal'?)


Any changes you can think of. CPU and mobo i'll think of after bull dozer is out. which is a few weeks correct?

I do want a good computer that can do video editing and play games.

That Scythe Mugen 2 for $25 is a killer deal; the Scythe Mugen died lately when they weren't sold as much, but in its time it was a GREAT CPU cooler for the price and often beat out more expensive ones. Just that it's huge.
That 2x4GB DDR3 RAM for $60 is a great deal, assuming DDR3-1600Mhz which is standard on Corsair Vengeance kits. Go with whatever is faster.

How are you getting these prices? I don't think even NCIX (the major Canadian computer store) has the prices like this right now

These are just prices i will be looking out for actually the prices aren't what are avaliable. I'm just wondering if the prices are good or they could be have for cheaper. Basically when there is a sale, I know what I should buy even though I don't have the complete computer yet.
