About to buy. Any Suggestions?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So after going back and for about i7 or 955BE, I finally came up (with the help of OCN) with this build. It is right at my budget so any suggested replacements need to be at the same price point. I'm using it for gaming, video editing, and general everyday use. See anything wrong, or fit issues? I appreciate any advice!

AMD Build:
ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Combo $270
OCZ Platinum EB 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 $80
XFX HD-489A-ZDFC Radeon HD 4890 1GB $200
2X WD Caviar SE16 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s $100
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V $110
COOLER MASTER Storm Scout Combo $100
LITE-ON 24X CD/DVD Burner Black SATA $28
Scythe MUGEN-2 $37

Total (Shipping & Tax) $1023

I'm actually selling a 955 BE and 2x2 kit of 1600 mhz OCZ Reapers (MSI GD-70 board and 4850 as well, but doesn't look like you'd be interested in those).
