    no so sure you need a triple core. check out the dual core phenom, its about $20 cheaper..

    AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB

    plus i read that you can unlock 2 cores on it, and effectively have a quadcore.

    edit: just read you had the dual core in your OP, didnt catch it >.<

    go intel and get an i7


    but tbh, don't know much about AMD/ATI prices/performance. All i know is AMD is generally cheaper, but not exactly better/the same. GFX card will be alright though. I'm more of an nvidia person but the cards specs look good

    all in all, not bad.. not AMAZINg, but not bad.

    dont get the Phenom. Get a Intel quadcore instead.

    But if price is a must, you got a decent build

    But if i was you, i would swap the cpu and mobo for the below.

    well, when i go looking for parts, first thing i check for is free shipping, and then discounted. That's the best way to knock off ~100+ off the total price.

    yea, like 1 or 2.

    If you're a gamer, get a high clocked dual core like the intel E8400. the 45nm keeps it cool so you can OC it to hell on air cooling (and it's already stock clocked at 3.0GHz..) I'm usin the E8400 right now and it's OC @ 3.61 and at a steady 41c and high 50/low 60 under intense load.

    quad cores are good for stuff like video editing. things that require a lot of resources and processing power.

    i have the phenom ii x2 550 unlocked to a quad..... prime95 stable for 12 hours at 3.7 ghz.. I easily got a 200$ cpu for 100$ Make sure your motherboard has advanced clock calibration and you may have to update your motherboard's BIOS to a new version.

    If your feeling lazy OP, here is basically the same speed computer for the same price, all ready to go with software installed. Building your own isnt so much cheaper like it used to be.

    all of those games should run on the highest settings with the computer you described.

    I would be worried about the case that you picked out. It seems pretty shallow. You might have some issues with certain cards fitting, especially vid cards.

    woah.. tbh that's not a bad deal.. I mean, it's not amazing, but still. Only problem is you can't customize it. Like trade out the gfx for better
