1. Why did you go with HD4830. You should have got the HD4870 or HD4830
2. Open box mobos are risky
3. whats with teh crap PSU... it has 24amps on the 12v rail. My 485w has 32A on the 12v rail. A quality 550w PSu (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139004) has 41amps. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005 52 amps
okay cancled the order, what about the GPU and MOBO? still okay with what i got?

Im no Intel basher however i think they have dominated long enough. AMD has done a great job (sloppily over thier past 2k and 3k vid cards and phenom processors) on their current models and they easily keep you under budget if your looking for less than 800.

Heres my suggestion.

Motherboard: BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail (theres a better one with 128 onbaord ram for 30 dollars more) 99.99
or
MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail 149.99 (25 mir atm)

Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.1GHz Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor Model ADV60000DOBOX - Retail 76.99

Video Card : ASUS EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail 149.99 (30 MIR)

Memory : G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK - Retail 54.99

Hard Drive : Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS 150GB 10000 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (bare drive) - OEM if you want to spend the 150, pricey might want to go SSD if you spend that much or just go with basic. Gaming doesnt need a pimp HD, size is what matters really it will just be a little slower loading the game cause of the HD transfer.

The rest is really up to you. Manufacturer of a DVD or blue ray drive only mean the % of a DOA will be smaller but not by much. Power supply id stick with 600+ and case - you sound like HOT pink would fit... na jk.

Its not top of the line but your intel setup is low level in comparison not to mention the new AM3 boards will accept the AM2 CPU's and Memory.

Sorry ang1dust but your suggestions make no sense at all. Why would he get the VelociRaptor when he as a budget of 800? Wouldnt it smarter to get a $50 dollar drive and upgrade something else e.g. the HD4850 to a HD4870 which would increase performance a lot more in games. I would rather have a 2 second longer load time and get an extra 10 frames in games. than 2 second less load time but unplayable games.

heres my proposed build

liteon dvdrw/cdrw

cooler master centurion 590

Samsung 500gb 16mb cache

sapphire hd4870gddr5

asus p5q p45

e7300

xigmatek s1283

OCZ modular 600w psu

OCZ DDR2 800 2x2gb kit

(note that when you buy the RAM and the POWER SUPPLY as a combo, you will get both of them for only 102.98cents)

this all comes down to 736.83 cents. (shipping+tax included)

this is , overall the best set up y ou can get for the money right now. i would jump on in asap.
