Default Opinions Wanted! (Gamer Computer Build, with a budget!)

I put my build up here a few days ago, got a lot of replies, did some thinking and now I'm back with v2 of this build! Lemme know what you think about it!


As this is a budget build I gotta stay below or around 1800$/1243£ (14000SEK) so if you've got suggestions on improvements please keep this in mind and also remember that computer hardware is generally more expensive in Sweden than in the US/UK. Also to see if the product you're thinking about is available where I live you can just search for the product name on Prisjakt - Kunskap före köp and if it shows up I'm able to buy it =)

This computer will generally be used for gaming and perhaps some Photoshop/Dreamweaver.

I hope this is enough info for you to get a general overview of the build and thanks in advance for the feedback

I would get the i7 920 instead of the i7 930

i agree with Slaymate... other than that, it looks like a pretty beastly build.

will you plan on Crossfiring your 5870?

also if you are planning on overclocking your CPU, get a CPU cooler...

Why should he get the 920? 930 is 2.8GHz vs 920 2.6GHz. Where do you see the logic on that?

At stock speeds there is really very little difference between the 2 cpu's. However the 920 is usually the better overclocker. And while the buyer may or may not be interested in overclocking at the present time. In the future a good heatsink and a little tweaking is a cheap upgrade and the 920 is suddenly the better buy.
