GPU: Power Color 1GB HD 5830 Graphics Card,

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 16MB Cache Hard Drive SATA 6GB/s 8.5ms 7200rpm - OEM,

Optical Drive: LiteOn IHAS124-19 24x DVD+/-RW SATA Black,

PSU: Corsair TX 650W V2 ATX2.31 80 PLUS® Bronze Power Supply,

you should talk to my friend Nick he knows more than me about computing. I think his username is cravingsleep.

Its not a bad build, but as its a builtg setup youre not getting discounts by shopping sales.

I suggest hitting up scan or overclocks and try piecing it together and se 9if you can get it cheaper.
