Default Need some help with first build. Parts

Hello, I'm building my first computer. I'm wanting to do some moderate gaming on it, but I want the graphics to be pretty good. I want to build a relatively powerful computer for around 800 bucks.

Nice looking build. You could save some cash on the psu as a corsair 550 Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies would be plenty of power. Since you do not have a crossfirex board you will not be adding a second card.

* 450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Expressģ power connectors recommended (600 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

I would get the AMD 955 Black Edition if I were you. The difference between the 965 and the 955 is the clock speed which you can easily overclock since the 955 has the multiplier unlocked.
