My System Specs

Lightbulb Please help me out with this build :)

Processor: Phenom 2 965 3.4 ghz quad core

Video Card: XFX HD Radeon 5770 1GB

RAM: 4 Gigs DDR3

MotherBoard: http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=4

HardDrive: http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=3

Power Supply: Looking for suggestions

Case: http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=3

Fans....Blah know any good 120 mm?

I've been told that I could of spent more on my case but he didn't specifically say that if it was a bad case or not.

I'm also gonna use a 1280 by...something monitor. Would I be able to put Crysis on very high at that resolution at say 2 x AA?

Smile New Builds

For psu, you can't go wrong with Corsair. For about the same money you could get the x6 to future proof. Overall it looks like a good build. As for fans, I always look for the quietest with a high cfm. I changed my case fans for higher cfms and the temps dropped about 5c. Enjoy the build!

You are new to computer building right? Where do you live? I can build one for you and ship it to you no problem (I have a business)

else I'd recommend the Antec 300 case, Corsair 400cx or 450vx power supply, and a 890gx motherboard
