Im building my first computer here is what I am thinking of:
Motherboard: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD
Newegg.com - ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
CPU:AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
Graphics:XFX Radeon HD 6850
Memory:G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL
Will be getting another stick when I have the spare money.
Hard drive: 1 TB SATA
My problem is the psu: as of now i have a cooler master extreme power plus 550w but was told in another forum that this is a bad psu. He recommened a xfx core edition pro 650w but ive seen pretty bad reviews on it. I think i will get a cooler master GX 650 instead, is this a good idea?
I would like to play recent games like Black Ops and Battlefield, and upcoming titles like Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Skyrim and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Ill appreciate the input.
