Good Build?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok i know i posted a while back in the AMD section about a build, but my dad bumped up my budget to $1500. so i want to build a gaming machine little Photoshop here and there, and the occasional web surfing.

So far i bought a GTX 570, Haf X case, and a WD Black 1tb.
now my budget is at $880. I can only buy from Frys since that the closet store in Riverside.
So here what i plan on getting.

PSU: http://www.frys.com/product/6494492
CPU: http://www.frys.com/product/6487382
Mem: http://www.frys.com/product/5994564
MoBo: http://www.frys.com/product/6539903 /or the Pro version?
SSD: http://www.frys.com/product/6526513

So is this a good build?

yeah that looks pretty good. FYI though, a 750W power supply would be more than adequate for you build and you could save a little money by downgrading.
