Do you already have the stuff? I would go Sandybridge with a big budget.

It was good until you reached your HD.

Get a SSD and maybe only a 1 tb.


The SSD will give a HUGE performance boost

Rosewill cases arent always the best and there PSU should never be trusted

Buy a Seasonic, Antec, or Corsair PSU they are much more reliable.

You donot need Ultimate.

it is a ultimate waste of money unless you have a complex network / own a business or something


*Just my opinion

I would have went with nvidia

* Sandy bridge is a new set of intel processors.


If you want to go for AMD i would hold out till Bulldozer

get an ssd, and a decent cpu cooler (H70/Noctua D14?) and overclock the cpu, and flash the bios on the graphics card to a 6970, and you will have a damn sweet system.

That motherboard you choose is E-ATX so you will have to get a bigger case that supports it.

Actually, the Rosewill Green series are pretty good.
