I'm planning out my first build and I need some professional takes on my selection. I'm trying to keep it as budget as possible without forgoing possibility to upgrade in the future.

Here's what I got:

casehttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021

power supplyhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095

motherboardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128542

cpuhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

hddhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697

ramhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277

gpuhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

displayhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236100

optical drive will be just a standard read/write/burn

Thanks

Ok, First fix your cpu link, but make sure its an i5, you will regret getting a dual core later on. But as for the changes the case, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147153 the gpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130664

you could get a core i5 2310 and still be more than ready for any game in existance. thats probably where i will go when my phenom II finally runs aground.. which at the industries curent rate is half past NEVER (either that or i will show around and get a 2400S) also do not.. EVER get tha gtx X50 (gts 450, gtx 550, gtx 555, gtx 550ti, gtx 650) series from nvidia they have a bad track record of sucking eggs.

if you want to spend similar money get an amd hd 7770 and whoop is monkey @$$ for the same money while consuming half the power

The Antec 302 case is $40 cheaper than the 900. The 900 doesn't have a filter for the front fans.

matrixian

still an impressive SoB of a case. filters do little imo

Actually I already own the antec 900 case from years ago. But I'm moving across country before I build the computer and Idk if I should pay the $25 baggage fee to bring it on the plane with me or if I should buy a newer, cheaper case. Any suggestions?
