Default Need computer config advice

I'm planning on building this computer to play mwf l4d cs:s cs 1.6 maybe crysis later on in the future. If there is anything that doesn't fit please let me know. Any constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated.
  2. OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W PSU
  3. AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
  4. MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3
  5. G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
  6. SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5850 1GB
  7. Intel X25-V SSD 40GB Sata II
  8. Seagate Barracuda 7200 320GB Sata 3.0
  9. LG DVD Burner

I also have an extra SSD sitting on my desk its a 30GB OCZ that I probably load my games onto. The intel will probably be my OS or visa versa. I am planning on overclocking it later.


Future Plans

New CPU Cooler

Thanks Guys

Default Re: Need computer config advice

where are you buying your parts from?

for the price of the x4 965 and the msi mobo, you could probably get a faster setup with an i5 750 and a crossfire capable mobo.

you could probably also find 1600mhz ram for around the same price.
