Get the 520hx.

620hx only if you plan on upgrading (future) while keeping that psu.
Back to stay?

Default New Computer redo

I have decided to wait a month or 2, to see what happens with the video cards.

I think by then ill have $1500 or so, looking for advice on what to get.
All I need is a Motherboard, Ram, Cpu (and vid card).
I looked through the recommended parts post but the motherboards i looked at all had bad reviews on newegg.

I prefer Nvidia, Intel and G.Skill,but im open to suggestions.
All I use the computer for is gaming.
Never overclocked.
I want a machine that can play the games at max settings with ease if possible.
Also looking to get a physics card, any suggestions/ upcoming news?

Thanks for all of the help, I really do appreciate it

Any info you need just ask ill be here

don't pay attention to newegg reviews. most of the time they are just a DOA board or a bad experience with the company, and they get a bad review because of it. so really go with our list over newegg reviews.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

or there are fanboys that purposely crap the review of it or they BS it like what we did with the Pentium D from Core 2 Duo upgrade that somebody here did
