Looks pretty good. Just make sure your PSU can handle it, cause if it can't, then you're pretty messed up

Agree, PSU is not an area you want to skimp on, its worth the extra 20 dollars to get a well known brand of psu

will it fit in this case?


http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...962&CatId=1520

the case i bought it from was from a convention center not online and came with a 500 watt power supply.

total output is 500watt max
+5v & +3.3v combined load 230 watt
+5v & +3.3v & +12v combined load 422 watt

The supply that is supplied with the case may blow like a bubble. As has been said don't skimp on a power supply.

here is a much better build
CM Case+550w PSU 80$ shipped , good cable managment , bottom mounted PSU , decent design , fairly decent PSU for the price
Mobo Asus 99$ shipped (-15$ MIR)
GPU 6850 170$ after 10$ promo card (-20$ MIR) shipped
RAM Team 4GB 1600 Mhz 45$ shipped
CPU PhII 820 x4 2.8Ghz 95w 105$ shipped
total: 540$ including tax
and you gonna need a cpu cooler , here is a very good Corsair A50 for only 15$

total build:555$ taxed+ shipped
quad core cpu which u realy want for bf2 and crysis
good cooler for overclocks
HD 6850 which requires 1x PCI-E connector overclocks nicely , unlike HD 5870 which needs 2 of them and u cant afford a PSU like that in ur build
mobo which is 8+2 power phase + heat sinked for overclocking and Crossfire x8x8 support for when u decide to bump in another card
1600 Mhz ram that should do 8-8-8-24 timings no problem

good luck with ur build

Have you ever used the toy with different shaped blocks and you try to fit them into their respective holes?

Well building PCs is similar.
