Edit: I guess for some non cpu intensive games it wont really matter that much

Those all look good for a budget rig. Iw ould step up from the 955 to a 965 just for performace sake at very little price diff.. the 965's can OC pretty well too. And Sapphire makes good GPU's. I think you've come up witha really good budget build smile.gif

If you go for a decent cooler, price would be $770 if you want a balanced platform. Not a very good argument, I must say. You're saving almost $100 going with the Phenom II.

I thought I was forgetting something. also quick question do u think that 650w PSU will be good enough for x2 HD 6850s in CFX or should I try to get a 700-800w one

The TruePower New 650W is good for even Radeon HD 6950 CrossFire. Don't worry about it. You should change the parts, though. The setup I mentioned mixed with the recommendations xd made is better:

Sony Optiarc DVD+RW Drive: $23

LIAN Li Lancool PC-K58W Case: $70

ASUS M4A79XTD EVO Motherboard: $109

Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme : $140

Antec TruePower New 650W: $80

Team Xtreem Dark 4GB DDR3 1600MHz: $48

AMD Phenom II X4 925: $115

Corsair Nova 32GB SSD: $65

Subtotal: $677
Total: $681

The SSD will allow you to put the OS on it and most important programs. It will bring a HUGE speed upgrade in comparison to an SSD. The Hyper 212+ is very easy to install and will allow you to OC that Phenom II X4 925 up to 4GHz. The PSU will handle a 5850 CF just fine. Motherboard has tons of features. I recommend you get the Lian Li because the CM you posted is over-priced.

After doing some more research I think this might be better. I used AnandTech.com to compare the i3 2100 to the x4 955,965, and 970 be and it preformed better than the 955,965 and better than the 970 as far as gaming what do you guys think? I know you cant o.c it but oh well

wow that looks on point. I was gonna add a SSD later, I didnt know they had some for 65$.yah all my friends say Lian Li is the way to go if you can afford it. Damn that dragon lord etd. of that case w/the red inside looks so beast cant find it anywhere tho =/

I think this is really good... but once again, I really recommend you to go with the i5 2500k, which is only $100 more. t would be excellent if you could get $100 more or perhaps go with a cheaper case and a Radeon 5850 (which performs better than the 6850 AND is cheaper)... you can maybe afford the i5 2500k. Make sure if you get the i5, you get the k version.

Also, do NOT get an SSD... it does not make that much of a difference, especially with gaming.

Not worth it. Those benchmarks on Anandtech are all at stock clocks which means they do no NB over-clocking at all. What will give you a huge performance boost with a Phenom II is a NB over-clock. Over-clock that and the cores and it'll definitely be faster.
