Feedback for planned i5 build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm working on putting a new computer together here for the next 2 years of school, My budget is around $1050-$1150, I believe the build here is roughly $50, so I do have some room to maneuver.

Planned use- Gaming, particularly BF3, and lots of coding (EE/CS major)
My screen resolution is: 2048 x 1152, I also plan on RAID0 for the 2 hard drives

I appreciate any help or suggestions, thanks guys!

Here is what I have lined up:

Personally, I think you can get a better deal on the HDD's.

Amazon has the 1TB Caviar Black with 64MB cache for $79:



For $30 more, you can double your storage space. Newegg has them on sale quite a bit too. Two weeks ago I picked up 2x1.5TB Blacks for $69 each from the 'Egg.

Just my 2c worth...hope it helps,

Rich
