This will be my first pc build..... it is a budget (under $900) gaming build.

Can someone check to see if these parts are compatible and if there is any problems?
If there are any alternatives that are better/cheaper, please let me know!
I would like to run games in high quality. These games include Bad Company 2, Split Second, Left 4 Dead 2, Crysis 2, GTA, and future games.
This computer will also be used for daily usage such as video and net surfing.

That totals to about $843......


Will 4 gigs of RAM be enough? Is the stock CPU cooler enough? Is the power supply enough? Not trying to spend any more money though.....

Is there anything I am missing????

Will all these parts work together?

Is this system fast?

PLEASE RESPOND AND HELP ME OUT!!!!!


THANKSSS IN ADVANCE!!!!
Honestly, I would just wait until eWiz releases another coupon code for 15% up to $15 off. When they had that, the HAF 922 was around $6x shipped. Also, their 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3's are around 6x shipped as well so you're saving money already. I would seriously opt for a different motherboard though. I'd grab an 890FX motherboard for the price you've got listed for the 790FX.

Also, if you can wait on buying, I'd grab the combo deal that mWave always puts up for an OCZ 700w GameXStream Refurb PSU with a 24x ASUS SATA DVD-RW/DL/CD-RW combo drive for $34.99 after a $10 MIR. They generally do it once a month or so. It's not a bad deal at all. The PSU is actually pretty decent and comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty. Saves you a bit of cash on the PSU and Optical drive you have listed above.

Also, at eWiz, the price of the 5770 will be cheaper and you can get an MSI Hawk 5770 or Sapphire Vapor-X 5770 or reference XFX 5770 cheaper than the price you have listed for that one at Newegg. You can only use the coupon code once per account but you can create as many accounts using different email addresses as you want.

Also, with their coupon code, you can get a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition cheaper than the 955 BE you have listed above...my general rule of thumb is to shop around because as you can see...Newegg generally never has the best price. Even their "sales" lately have only been normal prices.

Oh and about the motherboard, even the ASUS 890FX motherboard right now is only $1 more expensive before coupon code on eWiz so I would definitely wait for that code. That way you can see if they put Free Shipping on the MSI GD80 or the ASUS Crosshair Formula IV.

All in all, if you shop around, you should be able to shave around $100+ off the current cost you have listed at Newegg.

What the hell are you talking about?

This is the card he's referring to and it has 4 video outputs. I haven't heard of a card only having two outputs for a while now..

It says it can do Eyefinity in the friggen' overview..

He may have confused it with some of the other non ref models but even they have 3 outputs for Eyefinity. Display port, 1 x DVI and HDMI.

Ahh yess thanks you for the prices! I will further look into getting the best deals. Right now I just want to focus on getting the right parts that will make a powerful, smooth running gaming gig. and for the mobo, which one are you talking about? I see some that are a lot more expensive then the one I listed. What would the benefit of it be?

Looks good! It will be fast in most games (if you're gaming) like bfbc2, mw2, etc. I don't know about crysis though.

Crysis will be fine. I can play Crysis just fine (read, 20fps which is fine for me). So his system should do better. But it also depends on the resolution he ends up running at.

If you do eyefinity on three screens, it should be 3 times laggier (I made up a new word ). It would depend on what game you where playing. If you were playing pong you wouldn't lag, but if you were playing crysis you would have a laggathon.

He's asking about triple screen eyefinity.
