Totally disagree that intel is better for gaming. IMO thats more of an opinion but to each his own. Weird I posted in this thread before it was moved but somehow my post is gone. Anyway, I'd go with ASUS or EVGA for a graphics card. IMO they have better customer service if you were to need it and they also make great cards. Also don't skimp on the PSU. You'll pay for it in the long run.

Well thanks for the feedback guys...this is a refined list based on some advice from you cool cats out there. It's a lil cheaper too.

I took the Rexus Case fan off the list - convinced that I can somehow fix the wobbly 250mm fan on the XClio. (makes a clicking noise - hitting the frame?)

Better performance, better priced. Much, much better priced. Pretty much all 1333 CL8 RAM is ripoff and often generic-binned so prepare for some not-so-good OC results.

I also recommend:
Spend the $10 extra for Truepower 750W - you also get free 3DMark 11 too aside from extra wattage
$28.04 shipped cheaper better

overclock the CPU to 3.6-3.8Ghz with that cooler and HD 6850 to 6870 speed easly , why spend more when u get same\\better performance by bumping couple of clocks

AMD makes an incredible CPU for the dollar. I'm a huge fan of AMD, but I am an EQUAL fan of Intel. I have a propus in my computer and absolutely love it. I wanted a machine that would serve me well across a wide range of possible uses reasonably well for a budget. AMD made sense for me, but I recognize that it isn't the best solution for all applications.

Qualifier out of the way....

If I'm building a machine with a specific function above all else, something like GAMING, I would build an Intel machine. AMD can do a great gaming machine on a budget, but when you have a few dollar to loosen around the belt, basically, anything ~$750+ for the main components, Intel wins this battle.

An i5 build is where gaming meats the road on this budget.

Enjoy.

Agreed.The money saved on psu I would put towards a mid end case.I own an XClio A380,and its crap,cheap and just generally piss poor,the fan will break again in no time.Try the NZXT M59,cheap but well built and nice styling to show off your components,whatever you do ditch the XClio,it'll cost you too much in fans in the long run,chuck it on ebay to recoup some dollar.Someone will have it,just show it all lit up,the big fans and led's will draw some poor mug to buy it.
