the hdd you listed is one of western digital's "green" drives that are supposed to conserve power which = lower speed. it would be good as a separate storage drive, but as a main drive, i suggest getting this instead.
Newegg.ca - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

everything else looks ok. but what about a gfx card? or do you plan on using the integrated vid from the mobo? what do you plan on using this pc for?

If you're going to be gaming on this computer, I definitely suggest finding yourself a dedicated video card.

I took your advise on getting the other Harddrive and the specs do look way better, obviously i didn't look good enough, thanks for the advise.

The computer is defenetly going to be used for gaming purposes and a graphics card is probably going to have to be a must, any recommendations on what type of graphics card from Newegg.com i should get in a price range of $100 - $175 ???

So from Newegg.com or Newegg.ca? Is the budget in USD or CAD? If you need it from Newegg.ca, and in CAD a 5770 would be the best option, I believe. If you can up the budget for it a little, you can get a 5830, which is more powerful, and well worth it.


(Only chose this, 'cause it has a free game code.)
Newegg.ca - POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 1GBD5-PPG Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Newegg.ca - HIS iCooler V H583FN1GD Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/Eyefinity

Went with the Radeon HD 5830, much better specs and I like the Eyefinity features included in the package which will most likly be used in my situation. Thanks For The Advise.

Any Other Recommendations?

Well, if you don't mind overclocking, you can get a 955 and save a few bucks. The only real difference is the default multiplier. The 965's is 17, and the 955's is 16. You only have to change the one setting and it'll be exactly like the 965.

thanks for the advise but i am on a budget and a graphics card will make it go over so as of now i'm sticking with the built in MOBO graphics. but this will definitely be one of the many future upgrades to my PC.

Please check my modifications to my parts list below.
