Corsair H40

I have already:

My current computer does not play comfortably in today's games

I have a:

For about $ 540, is there more to price??

I want to stay Amd because I have always been well served

Not sure where you're getting your processor from, but there's a Phenom II 965 BE in the BST C/W Coolermaster V6 for $100 shipped.

There's also a few 5830's, 6850's and 6870's for sale in the BST. You may want to have a look around and see what you can find. You'll probably get better performance for less money than the 6790.

I agree that the 6790 is insufficient for that system. Here is what I would recommend,

AMD Bulldozer X4 FX-4100 (95W) Quad-Core Socket AM3+, 3.6GHz, 8Mb Cache, 32nm $119.99 You should be able to overclock it approx 4.5Gig, just look at my sig :)

Sapphire (11179-13-20G) AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB $169.99

Corsair (CW-9060001-WW) Hydro Series H40 CPU Cooler $49.99

Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition ATX Mid Tower $54.99

Total: $394.96 + tax
