Re: First Time Computer build!
Get the phenom II X4 955 instead. It has an unlocked multiplier so its quite simple to set it at 965 speed.
Video card, i would get the 5770 or 4890 instead of the 4870. 5770 has similar performance but suports DX11, while the 4890 is the next step up in performance.
HD, see if you can get the Caviar Black instead.
If you're buying this from newegg, i suggest you look for combos to save money.
edit: how every strange! i didn't realize other people had replied (i'm one of them). I guess i only saw the op.
