  1. Hey everyone, I am building a gaming PC that will replace my current and out of date Dell; A few points:

    1. My budget is around 2000$.
    2. I am wiling to overclock.

    Now, I need your suggestions for the parts. While I do know some about building, I don't really know if I am getting the best deal and the best quality with my current list.
    Also, I have not decided on a Hard Drive and nothing is set in stone and I am open to all suggestions.

    The List:

    Video Card: Some options: nVidia 570, Radeon 6950 or 6970 or the 5870.

    CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost): 300$

    Motherboard: MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard: 180$

    Hard Drive: Not sure yet

    RAM: CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB): 74$

    Sound Card (OPTIONAL): Probably wont include one.

    Power Supply: XFX Black Edition XPS-850W: 150$

    Case: Antec 900: 100$
