GPU:Ok, I'll consider the 285 because it seems to run cooler and quieter according to the reviews on newegg. But you would think even the 280 is worth it if I can't afford it?
Mobo: Which EVGA?
Ram: I tried looking for the step down you are talking about on newegg, but I didn't find any 1600 ram that was 6 gigs in that price range, so would you object to the ocz stuff the last guy recommended?
PSU: So that psu is better than the 650W psu I found in the recommended components thread and will totally power my system?
HDD: If it can fit my budget I will get your recommendation, but would the ones I listed perform well if it didn't?
Soundcard: yeah, haven't decided on speakers yet
Case: That's ok, but is that a decent enough case? Will everything fit in it with decent airflow?
Mouse: I think I going to stay with a g5 to keep cost down.
Keyboard: ok, thanks
Monitor: Thanks for the recommendation, but if I had to make some cuts, what makes that one better than something cheaper like this: Newegg.com - Acer P243WAid Black-Silver 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 400 cd/m2 3000:1 ACM - LCD Monitors
Speakers: Ok, I'll look around for some stuff
Cpu cooler: Ok, if I can afford it, I'll get that. If not I'll get it later. I only need that for ocing the cpu right? The i7 probably doesn't need to be oced for anything just yet, does it?
Yeah, thanks man. You're a great help.
