Can somebody check out this build?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What's up guys, I will be getting about 1,500 dollars soon and I was looking to build a pc, so I went ahead a put one together, but I want to know what you guys think. I know the prices may change by the time I get the money, but that is ok. I will on be spending about 650-750 so don't say I could do more. Here is the build I have so far. http://icap.me/i/ppq5d4lomx.png I have thought about switching the Radeon for the GTX480, but I'm not sure it would fit in the prodigy case, and I would like to have that case since I will be going to college this upcoming fall. Also this will be used mostly for gaming. Let me know what you guys think.

You can pick up the prodigy for cheaper sometimes, as well as the HDD

Prodigy fits GPUs 320mm in length when you remove the top HDD cage , or 180mm with it in.

10.5" unless you get the MSI Lightning GTX 480, so that's 266.7mm, which fits if you remove the HDD cage wink.gif

The 7850 is super overpriced @180 though, you can get 1GB ones for $140-150. You can get a HD7850 2GB for that or a GTX 660 on a good day.

Here's what I would do:

The PSU is overkill, shrink it.

I know it's 30 bucks more, but you get a 2GB videocard, better RAM, better reliability storage, and a more reliable power supply.
