Get the 520hx.

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

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.

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
