I just don't like having a stressed PSU. At all. I wouldn't go below 500W if intending to use a GTX 560
i was just saying if i did get a video card and yes i know i would need more power for it and no im not getting it

If you plan to take full advantage of dual graphics, the best you can get is an 6670, which isn't so pricy (i see them for $100 or less before rebates on the net), and would boost performance on DX10 and DX11 games (hopefully, better drivers will be released to improve performance on DX9 games as well)
Bulldozer would be a waste of money its like $300-350 and its not a apu and no im not getting a gtx 560 i was just saying if i did get a video card and that gpu wouldnt even work with my mobo.. and i dont need dual graphics + there its not gonna be room for that cuz the cpu cooler is so big it covers up 1-2 slots on my pice slots just like this pic http://prohardver.hu/dl/cnt/2010-06/...imgp3488_b.jpg im only using sound card and a wireless network card for internet

1. Ok, please tighten up your english a bit, kinda hard to understand. Pro Tip: Try punctuation.
2. Go with the apu then, BD is only gonna be about the 200 bux, so its not like it is far out of your price range. It will be competitive with the sandy bridge line so will deliver some good performance.
APU's are good if you aren't going to do any serious gaming and just focus on web browsing and video content.
3. I haven't specifically seen any benchmarks for that cpu cooler, bc I'm sure its a joke. Get a hyper 212+, save yourself some money and get far better performance.
4. Steelseries headsets are horrible in terms of sound and build quality. Especially for the price.
5. OCZ drives aren't that bad, they do fail quite a lot and their company is extremely shady in dealing with their problems. Their '2' line of SSDs were switched half way to a different fab making them slower, OCZ didn't tell the consumers and charged the same price. Their '3' line of SSDs is prone to failure and causes a myriad of issues, OCZ denies this and doesn't support their consumers.
Make your choice.

This is why you don't buy a crappy headset, see logitech, razer, steelseries, turtle beach, fatality, etc:

HORRIBLE
GAMING
HEADSETS


Hey, it seems you have started a thread asking for help buying headsets so you can talk to your guild while you play WoW. This is a helpful guide to bluntly state some of the finer points.

Let me get this out of the way quickly, straight up NEVER BUY A HEADSET. You may be asking, "Why?!" since virtually every uneducated fool has one. Well good thing I'm here, so I can teach you up.

Headsets are inherently a horrible idea because they combine piss poor headphones with a piss poor microphone and cost significantly more then they would cost separately, and I stress the significant part, its a joke. Not only do you get worse quality for the price, but because you are combining garbage parts with cheap wiring they are much more likely to break, and when they do, are harder to fix.

What you do want: A set of good headphones (depends on your budget), and a cheap desk mic. Personally, and many others on this forum will support this, I have the ATH AD700's. Great set of all around phones, perfect for listening to music and playing video games. They got decent bump, nothing that will blow you away, but their sound stage is incredible. They are open air though, so they do have some leakage.

Surround Sound... Since you have asked for headset help, it is also very likely that one of your criteria is that the headset you get recommended be Surround Sound because you think that will improve your piss poor kdr. First things first, you suck, accept that you are terrible at FPS games and move on. nothing will help that, no matter how much money you throw at it, I will always whoop that ass. But secondly, while the fact that it won't make you better is irrelevant, what is relevant is that fact that actual surround sound in headphones (putting multiple poor speakers, all less then a half an inch from your ear) is only a gimmick, and a poor one at that. Not just a "oh it costs a lost and isn't that good" kind of gimmick. It actually adds NOTHING to your experience, gives you surrond sound that can be less accurate then virtual surround sound with 2.0 headphones, and gives you significantly worse sound quality for the price, since you have very cheap drivers (there are 7 of them), and a cheap brand

If you still aren't convinced...lol go buy a razer or fatality or something, and everytime you pick up those pieces of garbage I hope you are reminded of my post and your asinine decision.

the $300 is for the octo-core BD. You don't really need the 8 cores, unless you plan to BOINC/Fold. I bet the 4-core alternative would be at like $200. And i know it is not an APU.

I agree with Grief, the APU would be good enough for any games at low res/HTPC operation/basic web usage no problem at all. Plus, a 212+ would be better, cheaper and more compact that the weirdness of cooler you chose. Plus, based by the shape and size, the RAM heatsinks you chose would never fit with that (look at the picture, they used only 1 out of the 4 RAM slots... and that is with a low profile RAM).

Protip: The FATAL1TY is useless, it just adds a neat looking shield. Get an Asus Xonar DX for less money, it'll be better for music and contains a built in amp. As well, I went from a $120 SteelSeries headset to a pair of $60 RX900's, and the difference was astounding. Get them instead. The PSU is a very good quality, if you're not running a big gpu or stuff like that, it should be fine. Get a Hyper 212+ or a Core-Contact Freezer instead of the prototype Thermaltake. And lastly, pick up a Corsair or Intel SSD instead of the OCZ, I've had terrible experiences with that company.

the only game i play is counter strike 1.6 so the apu is fine + its only $139 and i can only fit 2 of the ram heatsinks inside
