Help with first build. $600> - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Again with the price, It would probably amount to $700 maximum depending on the cost of the most expensive part. A good estimate to aim for is $650.

Cool, swap out the OS I put in my build link and put in a 1920x1080 21+ inch monitor in it's place

You can try to build a i5 2500k too yeah, Atleast AM3+ is good for BD (late september release) though.

Alright, let's get this show on the road:
eMachines 21.5" 1080p monitor - $100 shipped [Newegg]
AMD Phenom II x4 925 + Thermaltake Contac 30 - $115 shipped
ASRock 970 Extreme4 - $105 + $7 shipping, $10 rebate [Newegg]
Wintec One 2x2GB DDR3-1600 kit - $32 shipped [Newegg]
Samsung F3 1TB + DVD drive - $70, $4 shipping [Superbiiz]
Rosewill RG630 - $60 shipped [Newegg]
NZXT Source 210 - $40 shipped [Amazon]
PNY 1GB GTX 560 Ti - $115 shipped after 50% off discount from parents, $30 rebate
Superbiiz 10% off (max $10) promo ABCDEFG - $7 off
NEWCUSTOMER10 on Newegg - $10 off

Total cost including shipping: $631
There are $40 in rebates, after rebate price is $$591
Very high end, overclockable, expandable to SLI with no worries, also has AM3+ expandable support. Should max most (if not all) games at 1080p

If you absolutely can't afford $30 above 600, grab a less expensive card such as the 6870. By ensuring the card is the most expensive component, you get the best gaming performance possible

I might point out for reference that these parts don't go together - a 3+1 cannot power reliably a 125W processor, it will throttle during high loads causing performance loss.

Might want to read, he has no need for OS. Probably already bought it, or recycling a license from an old computer.
