Looks all good and it shouldn't bottleneck.

Sorry for the delay... I've been watching some videos on RX-8's.

Problem is, if I did that I'd need a bigger PSU...

I've told him that I'd put Windows 7 on it for now, and he plans on buying it next year.

i got everything minus the PSU as a package deal from newegg, saved 50 bucks total, ill try to find the link for you, but i think with case my build was about 370 total, so that still leaves you for a nice GPU if you dont want to do on board graphics
Looks like a solid build, +rep

Interesting... I'll look into that. Could give him better airflow in the V9 without the bigger HDD blocking more air. +rep

Some people.

I'm trying to grasp your post... I already said he has a case (ThermalTake V9)... you have an AsRock board which I do not trust, a card reader which he doesn't need, and no GPU.

Did you even read the OP?

Kinda hard to read, but looks good. +rep

He has a 20" Monitor already. He plays a lot of Day Of Defeat: Source, but he wants to get into CS:S and some other big PC titles like Crysis.

I like this... if you could cheap on some other parts and get a slightly better processor that might be good, too.

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-072-_-Product //// $66 Gigabyte P43

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-380-_-Product //// $79 E5200

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-319-_-Product //// $74 WD 640 Black

VID: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-162-_-Product //// $99 Powercolor 4850

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231144 /// $52 2G G:skill

DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-032-_-Product //// $33 Sony DVD/rw

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171031 /// $40 CoolerMaster 500W

SOooooo.... 443 at the moment, which gives you room to play with if you want to beef up or go with more RAM as I only got ya 2GB. Or pay for a OS....

VID: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-859-_-Product //// 134 Sapphire 5750.

/\\ /\\ /\\ This would make my build $478, and I would be much happier with that card than a 4850.

And.... IDK if you need a monitor or not.

Another solid build coming in... +rep Narynan.

He doesn't need a monitor.

EDIT: Here's the case we're working with here, just in case anyone wants to know...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133071



Right now, we're trying to figure out how to make this thing reap of red...

Thanks for the rep, had to update my build. I was looking over everything and realized I had no DVD drive!

Buy that 60 bucks left over I think is pretty good, and everything there OC's pretty good too.
