Hey all. The time for a new computer has come..
Im looking at a DIY deal released from Newegg at the moment.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...t=Combo.739448

(the case and power supply are not being used as well as the ram.)
I was thinking of either getting:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145346

I was reading and saw that the vengeance ram was made more for the Intel side of things. Should i just pick up the G.skill ripjaws (which I have heard some reports on the ripjaws being for intel as well..) or would the vengeance work well for my build? if neither of those options are good, please recommend something, and that goes for the whole build, if you have something around the same price that may be better let me know. I generally play World of Warcraft, or FPS games. so I will need some graphics but nothing huge.
GPU:

which again on the GPU, I have a HIS right now and i really like it, but if there is something better out there within a $10 range i am all ears.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.

All the parts there would be just fine, but you really should just select all the parts yourself. Especially since you aren't using some parts from that barebones kit you could probably save some money. As far as the ram goes, either of those kits are just fine. Though I wouldnt really recommend that graphics card. The 6770 is the same gpu as the 5770 just with cooler temps and less power draw. I really dont think its that big of an upgrade from the 5670 that you have. You could try getting some cheaper parts or even just getting a recertified GTX460 for about $120. Just my

Either RAM will work fine, though you'd be better off with two sticks for dual-channel operation.

Regarding the DIY kit, I'd avoid it. Almost all of the parts are mediocre at best. What components do you actually need?

just say no to newegg super combos

95w+ cpu on a msi 3+1 board = fire

many better options here, even the $300 fvm1 build will beat it

Diy kits and supercombos are failures and rip offs. See link in sig. Don't buy it!

Thank you all for your responses. I was pretty skeptical myself on the combo. I like your builds you made in that thread Xd, I haven't heard of NCIX, I'm assuming their good? On the !$500 you have on the thread there is http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=61850. Would I be better off buying a ~130$ GPU, or would two ~70$ GPUs be better, seeing that there are 3 PCIE slots would that be something achievable? I have always gone with 1 GPU, but two smaller sounds bigger than 1 bigger when it comes to most computer tasks. Advice on that would be awesome.
As for your question t-ramp I need; Motherboard, CPU, GPU, Ram, Dvd drive, and either a fast small HDD, or a large regular HDD (I have a 320gb already.)

As some one who has that motherboard and have been thinking about that CPU. I'd not get it.

The board only supports <= 95W cpus and the stock performance of that 1035T is a bit marginal.

That being said it's not too bad of a deal as a 2ndary machine or so. It would overclock that CPU at least a little bit (2.9/3ghz) I'm guessing w/no voltage increases (ie safely)

I've had no problems with this board but knowing its 95w limitation i'd not bother with it again.
