Hey all I was wondering what you guys think of this build and if you think it's powerful enough to last a couple years playing games on high/est settings.I didn't want to spend too much but I still wanted something substantial.

# Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system
# AMD 1090T Phenom II 6-Core 3.20GHZ Processor
# USB 3.0 and SATA III
# Dual ATI Radeon 6850's in Crossfire Configuration
# 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 memory
# AMD Vision Black
# Liquid Cooled
# 850w psu

Specifics are your best friend.
What brand mobo/GPU/PSU/RAM/etc? And what resolution do you game on?

The CPU isn't especially powerful; any i7 would be better and probably not much more expensive. Most of the custom computer building sites give you the exact make and model of the motherboard too.

Also, it all depends on how much you're spending. That should cost around $1100 newly built at the most.

But generally? Yes, that will play every game coming out in the next 2 years without at very playable framerates, albeit not all of them maxed out at a resolution higher than 1080P. E.g. Metro 2033 will bring that system to its knees already.

Resolution I game on is 1920 x 1080 . I was under the impression that crossfired 6850's can match a 580 or 6970..

Would going with the i7 950 be the better option? dual 460's?

Also I would like to get everything below 2000$ but this does include monitor,keyboard + mouse, etc.

A Phenom II X6? I would have gone with a i7 2600K Sandy Bridge, Also you will Regret getting the HD6850's in Crossfire, you could have just gotten one HD6950.

I'd have to agree. The 2500k/2600k would've been a better choice. Same with a 6950 that you could more than likely unlock into a 6970 and then much later on down the line when you couldn't max out games, all you would have to do is buy another 6970 to crossfire for dirt cheap and keep your system running for another couple years.

I haven't gotten it yet so I'm still open to changes. What then would you suggest for under 2000$ ? I'm not the most knowledgeable of all the details.

If you can't wait for BD, Ivy Bridge, or LGA 2011 then something like this should more than suffice.

CPU I5 2500k $230 justarealguy makes a good point.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

CPU HSF If you don't plan on overclocking then ignore this
Air Cooling
Thermalright Silver Arrow - I'm fairly certain I remember reading that 1156 compatible HSFs were 1155 compatible as well $68
http://www.crazypc.com/products/silver-arrow-50990.html

Or if liquid cooling is more your thing
Corsair H70 $110
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181013

Mobo
Looks like the fixed boards are still coming in so give them a little time since only a few are available currently.

RAM
4 Gigs should be plenty $68
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231320
but if 8 is needed $120
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226184

GPU XFX HD 6950 $263
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150523

PSU It's only $10 more than the 850W version and should give you a good amount of room for OCing/Crossfire
Corsair 950TX $156
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139013

Hard Drive $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

SSD OCZ Agility 2 $120
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227542

Case HAF 932 No real reason to buy the HAF X $140
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119160

OS Windows 7 Home Premium $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116754

Monitor Acer 24" 1920x1080 2ms response time $219
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009167

Keyboards and mice just come down to personal opinion

Maximum total before any MIRs = $1713(mobo included)
