Default Yet another *need help building new computer* thread

Alright, I think this is my final build. My plan is to SLI the graphics card once i need to upgrade. Please tell me if anything isn't right, I don't know what to check to know they all work together, if the MOBO has enough slots for everything (including room for two graphics cards). I'm paranoid that I'm going to buy everything and somethings not gonna work right. Please alleviate my fears and tell me it's all good (but don't lie...).

Whoops! Here's the graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150229

And to Comp_Pro, I'm pretty sure that most people prefer Intel, and actual testing has proved that Intel is slightly better: http://techreport.com/articles.x/12091/1

I just ordered the HEC Orion PSU which is VERY Cheap and will be powering an 8800GTS 640MB GPU. I'll let you know how it performs. You could save a chunk of money going with it rather than your other high-performance PSU.

im an amd fan boy and ill admit that C2D is better than any AMD cpu at stock

also you wont be able to play very many games with that GFX, should play most games at lower settings though, you dont really need to play games at max though. unless you want to run crysis you should be fine. nice budget build

First things first, you're going to have to downgrade your CPU. That's not enough money to get a decent mobo and case. Save $25 and get the E6320:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...5015&Tpk=e6320

OCZ PSUs are not all they're cracked up to be. Unless you need the silent PSU, check out something like this:
http://www.provantage.com/antec-tp3-550~7ANTS02K.htm
Much better PSU, and you're saving $10.

Now you have $160 for a case/mobo. Get the Asus P5B for $110:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131030

And this Cooler Master case for $50:

Are you going to be overclocking?

the extra 800mhz is SO worth the extra cash, specially since i doubt he wants to OC.

Well if he can afford it then definitely...but that's not exactly a $600 budget CPU.

Okay so I have some changes to make.

First is the power supply. That Orion XPOWER585 sounds like a fantastic deal, it has almost no negative reviews too. So I'll probably go with that. Thanks Mambug!

Second, I think this case should be just fine, bringing the cost down some more.

My next downgrade is for the RAM, though it should be just as good:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034

And for the mobo, would this work? I'd like to go with it based solely off of the better reviews then what freestyler suggested.

That leaves me 170$ for a graphics card. What's the best I could get for that?

Also, I don't plan on OC until my comp starts to show its age and it's necessary.

Thanks a lot, yall've been a lot of help so far!
