i5 Build - help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Working on my first build and I'm pretty sure I'm happy with the parts I've picked out now. Looking to spend around 1 grand on parts (~800 left). This build is for gaming (Counter Strike: Source) and as a general home computer. Not doing anything crazy but would like something nice.

Already have:
Lancool PCK62 Case
Kingston 64gb SSD
CM Hyper 212
Cd Drive
Card Reader

Processor + Mobo:
i5 760 + Asus P55 Usb 3.0

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.541700

PSU + Hard Drive:
CM Silent Pro 600 + WD 1TB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.548508

GPU:
Msi Cyclone 1gb gtx 460

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127510

Ram:
Gskill Ripjaws 4gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

Total = $751 (after mail in rebate)

I have about 40 bucks left over, what should I put it in to?

Thanks for the help

I think for a one grand computer you should be able to play a lot more than just CSS heh. Dont forget a good CPU cooler.
