Default optimus haff! build tell me your opinion.

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.

- my pc will be used for a far bit of gaming such as crysis warhead, 1 and 2 far cry 2, bf3, mw3, medal of honour, and more and school work.

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
- $1200 including shipping

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.
- australia www.pccasegear.com

4. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
- i intend to use my micro atx motherboared from asrock it supports the x6 procesors just not sata 3 or ddr3 but will upgrade in the future just trying to save money atm.

5. WHEN do you plan to build it?
when i gather the money to build it.

6. What resolution do you use?
1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200

the parts i have been looking at include:
amd x6 1090t
coolermaster haf x
coolermaster silent pro m700w
4 gigs of ddr2 800 ugrade with new MB down the track.
msi gtx 560 to twin frozr ll OC
24 inch benq lcd moniter.
1 tb WD black

im using a old micro atx i have that support the x6 cpu i was wondering if the hyper 212+ will work on a micro atx boared if not wat works well on micro atx motherboareds.

this will cost: $1200 deliverd

what setting will i be able to play new games on ?

At a glance i don't see anything wrong with the build and the hyper 212+ will work on a matx board. Your cooler choice is limited by the motherboard's socket and if it'll fit in your case or not. As for gaming I'd imagine fairly high settings at that resolution, just note that your mileage might vary from game to game.

Have fun with the build
