I Think you're like the 10th person to say something about microcenter lol All i have is a frys ( aka incredible universe ) but their stock is absolute GARBAGE.

I miss the old days of that store.

MAYBE i could do like $620

Games

- C&C
- Diablo 3
- BF3 ( rarely )

Lots of media but no more than 100GB

Also for the graphics card, you'll be far better off with a 6850 as it's just that bit cheaper and there is negligible difference between the two other than in benchmarks.
The 6850 overclock more too, along with using less power so your power supply could handle 2x if you ever go the Crossfire route. thumb.gif
As for the RAM.. Go with the Samsung Eco as i've said a few times.. It's much better ram! thumb.gif
Stick with a single 4GB stick for now, and grab a second later if you do that!
The board is rather nice, if you ever step up to an i5/i7 it'll handle them well. Along with Crossfire 6850s..
Your power supply will handle almost any single GPU setup available to date, the i3 is no slouch but you might be better off spending the few $$$ more for a i3 2120? thumb.gif
Along with a bigger HDD maybe, it's not alot more for a Terabyte is it? thumb.gif
EDIT: Just realised i use thumb.gif WAAAAAAAAAAY too much... rolleyes.gif

Lol Yeah thanks i think it will be my best bet so i can focus on hardware.

and thank you for complementing my selection. thumb.gif

It's actually a $44 w/ a mir.

Good point about the PSU, I just checked w/ my trusty PSUCalc and it reccomends 500W. Stand by for an edit.

I Would just like to thank everyone for this HUGE thread of infomation!

I had no idea this community was so wonderful, helpful and supportive!

(Except Keiths) wink.gif

Also with the SSDs i'm not to sure i understand how they work?

Are they a replcement for a HDD because they are faster or can you run both in conjuction and save certain stuff like games, programs or anything to the ssd and they will load faster? and if so what kind of difference does it make with loading. 2x, 4x,8x ? biggrin.gif

It depends what type of application you're using.. Windows will start up alot faster and be alot more responsive on an SSD! Games will load faster and programs will just generally be faster to open, I've found that windows responds to opening stuff like task manager faster, opening the disk management faster. Chrome is more responsive too since the SSD.

That being said, 60GB is fine. Just remember that it's made to be a replacement, but if you're going with 60GB you'll want a traditional HDD too. But if you can fork out for a 120GB+ you could get away with a SSD then grab a green drive later for music/photos as you get more games to install to the SSD. On my 64GB M4 i've got Windows 7 + Office + BF3 and B2K expansions with 23.5GB free.

Ideally 120GB would be the best for SSD only, and maybe just buy an external USB 3.0 Hard drive later on for movies/music etc? That and maybe get a terabyte later on down the road too! smile.gif
