Alright, This is what ive put together so far, for my gaming build.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824262011 : Monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106335 : Optical Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697 :Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152035 :pSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402 : MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156254 : Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345 : RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 : CPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150482&Tpk=ATI HD 4850 : X2 GPU

That's everything i need, i already have all other peripherals and OS (Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)
My expectations are to be able to play the majority of modern games, on decent to good settings. So my question for you all is- Are there any changes i can make to save some $$ or just more practical modifications. All those things came up to about 920$ before taxes and as you can see all I'm working is 1,000$

Soo! All advice is appreciated.

I think at least the processor would crush the one you picked.
I suspect that graphics performance would better it too in most situations.
The samsung F3 is quite quick.

Alright, So considered your parts and basically swapped them all in except the CPU and MOBO

For the reason, I would be over budget because i would still need Monitor,Optical drive and case which would put me a little over 1,015 before taxes.

So im working with

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106335 : Optical Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185 :Hard Drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402 : MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156254 : Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231443 : RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 : CPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...e=10&IsFeedbackTab=true&rdm=14#scrollHelpful1 : GPU

Which is only 902 before taxes

So i do have some room to get a better CPU, so do u know any other good ones, but not quite as expensive as the

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

I was thinking more toward AMD because they are cheaper and still deliver, but Intel is fine aswell if reasonable.
 
With AMD, you have higher power consumption than most intel processors. With more power being used the higher the temperature. Also you would need a larger power supply if you want to run AMD.

This is a super old thread, my friend. I'm pretty sure I went with AMD that time around, though. Sorry that your advice was 7 years too late.
