Default Stereptypical is this build good thread.

OCZ SXS 500w
cm elite case
wd 160gb 7200rpm
corsiar 4 gb
geforce 9600
asrock mobo
AMD pheom quad core agena 2.3 ghz

All for 500 bucks w/ combo deals. Free CoD:WaW too. Is this any good now, and will it still be good after detassling season? (late august, early september)

Edit-Or maybe with another 100 or so more bucks to spend in January. (my bday is in december+christmas too I usually get about 100 bucks in checks and 50 in walfart gift cards)

Seems like it would work fine. I mean 160gb Hard Drive is extremely small now-a-days but im sure you have your reasons. Honestly, there isnt anything wrong with it and it will work fine for a good while.

some good specs I might suggest since your running a am2+ CPU use pc2 8500 ram its about the same price and would perform better on that cpu and if you plan on upgrading to a bigger graphics card down the road might wanna get a bigger psu something in the 700-800watt range with a single rail would do.

Well there heatsinks blow nutz, but im not gonna argue with you. Go with sparkle if you want, but better keep it clean or buy a fire extinguisher with the wally world gift card.

Kevins half asleep, but I can tell you what he is gonna tell you. PC power and cooling. best PSU's on the market. Well worth the money plus some. Single 12v Rails do the best.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006

Both are great brands and not hard on the wallet yea they coast about $100 but a good psu is important in a computer and will save headaches down the road the one you picked out is good as well but it does not leave as much room to upgrade.

let me know if i can help out
