what i have so far:

optical
hdd

components i need:
cpu
mobo
case
gpu
memory
psu

so far i've decided the

i do some gaming, but i wouldn't mind on low-medium settings. i think a triple cpu would be fine enough?

help me out please :]

thanks!

A white Source 210 for $40! Nice deal! eek.gif

A quad can fits this budget, on Am3+ platform too.... if you can make it to a Microcenter (Santa Clara or Orange County-Tustin)

Might as well take some of today's best deals and:
Phenom II x4 840 + Gigabyte 760G AM3+ [Microcenter - can you make it to a California one? pickup only] - $98
G.Skill Ripjaws X 2x2GB DDR3-1600 [Newegg] - $25 shipped after promo EMCKBKF55 - RAM is always cheaper on Newegg, despite taxes
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GL4UZK"]Rosewill RG530[/ame] [Amazon] - $50 + ~$4.75 shipping
NZXT Source 210 White [Amazon] - $40 shipped
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B002G1YPH0/"]CM Hyper 212+[/ame] - $29.50 shipped [Amazon]
XFX HD 6790 [Newegg] - $135 shipped, $110 after rebate
NEWCUSTOMER10 on Newegg gives you $10 off
Max out most games for $382.25 before rebates and taxes

If you can edge over $400 for a bit, I highly recommend the ASUS GTX 460 DirectCU 1GB - a GTX 460 will max most games at 1920x1080 resolution. This costs $165, $135 after rebate, however for an extra and minimal $2 deducted from rebate, you can get the rebate check in 9 days smile.gif

RAM deal valid today only smile.gif

It might help to know what you need this for though (primarily gaming, video edit, what?)
If you can't make it to microcenter you could put together an x3 440 + HD 5770 or so PC in this budget

I was looking at psu's and thought this one might be good for your budget seeing as it's mid-range, modular, and even 80 Plus certified to save energy:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016
