Default new pc build!

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, crysis 1 and 2, far cry 2, bf3, mw3, medal of honour, and more fall out series, gta 4, and most other games, watching bluray movies,

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
- do not want to spend over $1100 for a budget pc.

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.

- australia www.umart.com.au


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 procesors with a simply bios update 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 $189 or a x4 965 for $139
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 $255
24 inch benq lcd moniter. $154
1 tb WD black

im using a old micro atx i have that support the x6 cpu i was wondering if the hyper 212+ or a hyper 212 evo will work on a micro atx boared if not what works well on micro atx motherboareds, and will a 4 pin cpu power give me enought power to use those cpu's.

would it be worth saving the extra 40 bucks on the x6 1090t and g for the 965 x4?


thanks,
steven

My System Specs

Default

Hey first off I would like to say don't buy a coolermaster PSU, they aren't very good and you would be better off with, seasonic, antec, corsair, silverstone or XFX.

Secondly with that budget you could pick up a nice sandy bridge system with better performance.
i5 2500k $220
Asus p8z68-V LX $139
Coolermaster 690 II Advanced Nvidia edition $119
Antec 620w Neo Eco PSU $86
msi gtx 560 to twin frozr ll OC $255
24 inch benq lcd moniter. $154
500gb WD Caviar black $95 (HDD's are super expensive right now pick up another when they get cheaper)

Grand total: $1068
