  1. Hey I'm building a new computer and these are the parts I've picked out and I was wondering or more like double checking if they are all compatible with you guys and maybe some opinions on different parts. My current setup costs about 800 and I would like to keep it around 800 or lower thanks :) P.S. This is a gaming computer :D

    The system looks good. You could get yourself a cheaper case like the CM-690 or an Antec 900. Also, the Xigmatek HDT S1283 or Scythe Katana will be a better CPU cooler for cheaper.

    If you can get 800-1000watts PSU and a good case and I also agree on the above choices for a case like the Antec are very good. Don't forget Antec DDB Fans for your case, you one air-flow in and air-flow-out (2) To keep that system cool. You might also want to add a filter on the air-flow in and air-flow-out to trap dust too. Look for cases that support that feature. If you can't find any you can make your own using any AC filter trap.

    Thanks for the helpful replies and I've updated some of the parts I think would be better

    Cooler Master Storm Scout Case

    OCZ AMD Black Edition 4GB Ram

    Rosewill Green Series 530W

    The case and power supply downgrade I did was for the OCZ AMD black edition ram which I found out was really good for my kind of motherboard and the ram is supposed to be fast just under the Kingston Hyperx

    And most the I items I try to pick are all 5 egg ratings I try to stick to that as much as possible as those are users who have it and say its good ;)

    I personally like the Antec 900 more for a case.

    As for the other components, all the previous ones were better IMO. The OCZ RAM does look cool though I don't see why you would spend so much on it.
