My System Specs

Default

Or you could take advantage of the very low prices on AMD CPUs right now, there are Black Edition versions under 100$ on newegg.ca. An AM3+ mobo that will secure future upgrade will be around 120$, with 990X chipset and that will save you at least 100$ in your build. You don't really need to put latest technologies in a PC, you are fine with some older parts also, if you choose well. For SSD, you might want to know that 120GB Revo Drive is 110$ at new egg. With the money difference from the AMD build you could afford one of those and it will not bottleneck your system. Video card wise you could go with a GTX 560Ti 448 would be just fine too.
