Hi I am a first time builder and I need a little help on building the gaming machine. I have looked at some custom ones online (dino pc) but not shoor if I am getting good deal any help with this would help a lot.

What I need:

CPU : at least 3.0 gh
Ram: no less than 500gb
Mother bord : best for money
Graphics card : at least 1gb
DVD drive : any
Power supply : room for upgrade

Also please take into account cost of operating system.

Medium to high BF3 for under 600 with OS is going to be almost impossible unless you are playnig at a res of like 1280x1024.

Plus there is no way he can get 500gig of ram into that budget :P

But yeah, what PP said. Unless you can find some amazingly cheap deals somewhere your going to have to save up a little longer.

Probably not, but my old GTX260 could play it smooth enough on low settings so it should deliver decent enough that way.

GTX260 can play high at 1280x1024 so that is why I was saying up there 600 would get you high settings on a low res monitor. A 6000+ with my 465 at stock chugs medium at 1080p.

The second link is a CPU/RAM combo, an AMD A6-3670K FM1 quad CPU and a set of AMD 2x2GB 1600 RAM.

NewEgg's combos are only available for a limited time so if you wait very long it will be unavailable and we will have to start over.

If you can push your budget an extra $10 I would go with this PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371016

550W will give you enough headroom to be able to upgrade your GPU later and not have to buy a new PSU.
