That looks pretty good. The only thing i would change is the PSU to the 650tx. That will give you a little future proof and is a better psu imo

Hows my RAM ? That look compatible ?
I have built only Intels,does AMD wants the same RAM ?

We were going to build an i3 newegg combo(this is for a friend of mine) but I thought
i3 were garbage,50.00 CPUs for 125 bucks (Ripoff city)

The ram will work, you may have to set it manually in the bios for it to see the 1600 speed though but yes it will work. If he waits, he may be able to find some good deals on the i5 or i7 since the new sandy bridge just came out the prices might drop.

What's the budget?

Your PSU is fine at 550w. No worries there!

The memory on AMD platforms actually reposnd better to lower latencies as opposed to higher frequencies. Try and find a CAS 7 kit at 1333 (like these).

Also, i3's are good solid performers... but they are dual core as opposed to the quad you've picked out here.

def want 4 cores.....I run an i7 950,but they are too spendy
for this build....I dont think SB will really drop the CPUs a whole lot
maybe in 6 months youll see a i7 950 for 225-250....and im not waiting devil-smiley-019.gif

Yeah there's nothing wrong with the 955. Done plenty of gaming budget builds on less... so it's a good chip.

If you have room in the budget, you might want to consider going for a 460 instead of the 450... and maybe consider Logitech peripherals because I couldn't imagine using anything else smile.gif

your build looks very solid
just a small adjustment
take this PSU instead and this Video Card

1st. TX series PSUs are more reliable
2nd 650w will give u some future proof and u can add crossfire later
3rd your mobo support dual x8 PCI-E so having 5770 and a 650w gives you nice little future proofing even if ur on a budget
4th 5770 beats GTS 450 on all benchmarks and costs same smile.gif

good luck with your build !
