Welcome to Tech-Forums, rdownie!!

First of all, what is your budget? And do you need a list for the whole system (including monitor, speakers, mouse, keyboard, etc.)? Or just the tower itself?

And that processor would not work with the motherboard, because the motherboard that you picked is for Intel processors, while you chose an AMD processor.

Since you mentioned that you'll be using this computer for gaming, you can go the AMD route and save a couple hundred.

thank you for the reply. ill have to find an AMD motherboard. $2000 is my max i would like to go for the tower and staying around 1500 would be best. i have a monitor already and will be getting the new razer naga for a mouse and razer keyboard. is there an AMD motherboard you would suggest? ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard maybe. choosing this one because i have heard asus is pretty reliable.

Total is $1490.89 without shipping charges.

Just get two of the RAM kit I suggested if you really want 8GB, even though 4GB is more than enough for gaming.

yep, all the main cables will come with the parts.

sli is for nvidia cards, youd be using an ati card so you can use multiple cards in crossfirex. but yes, even though a single 5870 is already a beast, should you want to add a second one, your system will be ready.

Nice specs. But make sure that the parts are compatible with each other. By the way, Intel i7 is the bomb. It's like having a Bugatti Veyron in your CPU.

hello everyone. i ordered all of the pieces shown in links by b1gpal early last week. they all came in the mail and everything looks great. i put them all together based off of the manuals but am having some problems. when i turn the computer on, everything is running. the mobo lights up, graphics card fan is spinning, hard drive feels like it is spinning inside of its case, but there is no bios beeps or bios screen on my monitor. it is an lg computer monitor and it attached to the vid card through an hdmi cable. so everthing is attached and on, but there is no bios beeps or screen. if anyone can help me with this i would greatly appreciate it.

ps. the dark knight cpu fan does not fit this mobo. so anyone reading this should not buy this combo . cheers

Do you have another monitor you can use to see if the LG is at fault? Or try using the monitor's DVI or VGA.

I'm sorry the DK didn't work out for you.
