Default Gaming Computer

Hey guys im looking to buy a beast gaming computer. I plan on purchasing it through newegg.com and i plan to have my spendings about $1000-$1100 NOT INCLUDING MONITOR KEYBOARD MOUSE ACCESSORIES OR A WINDOWS 7, XP, VISTA ETC I ALREADY HAVE ALL THAT. So pretty much the hardware. If possible making everything compatible. Recomendations: CASE SET TO ANTEC 1200, AMD BUILD, NVIDIA, AT LEAST 4 GIGS RAM NO NEED FOR MORE THERE SPEND MORE MONEY SOMEWERE ELSE. Thanks Brand names i support: CORSAIR OH YA....ANTEC....ASUS...GIGABYTE....AMD PHENOM.....i guess u guys can post ur ideas ill decide.

First off, the Phenom II's use tri channel ram. Unless the motherboard is an odd one, I believe you need tri channel. Your current selection is dual channel.

Also, go with the 5850. Less power draw, lower temps, it's faster in most cases, and has DX11 support.

ok.. thing is lol motherboards are really things I DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT..... so when gibson u telling me tri channel lol for ram... im really not sure with motherboard supports so if you could find me a good AMD motherboard that does work wiht a phenom2x4 and vinman i really dont understand overclocking process to me if you can explain.... andGibson you seem like a pro in this building stuff so if you could pretty much give me a build you think is pretty nice... catch is u have a $1200 budjet max.... not including cpu accesories, monitor,etc.. Basic hardware that i have listed prefereble and most likely from new egg. Start you off AMD build crazy graphics 5850/285/480 ur pick make sure the budjet, MODULAR POWER SUPPLY NO LESS 750, actually u know whats best lol thank you people

Pretty much the best Phenom II motherboard you can buy is the ASUS Crosshair III/IV formula. If you want to go cheaper, the MSI 790FX-GD70 is the best price/features board.

EDIT: Buy it newegg open box. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...223R-_-Product Worst case scenario is you do not get a backplate or $2 sata cables, which you would be best off replacing anyway.
