I'm going to be building this PC. My goal is to be under 1000$ (USD) Parts as listed:
Silverstone Raven 3 149.99 @ neweg
Asus M5A97 EVA AM3+ 114.99$ -20.00 MIR
XFX Core 7850 229.99 -20.00 MIR
Silverstone Strider Plus 80+ Bronze 500W PSU 79.99
Kingston HyperX T1 8gb 2x4 50.99
AMD FX8120 3.1 GHZ stock (not overclocking) 159.99
Corsair H60 64.99
Corsair Force GT120GB 119.99 -30.00 MIR
so about 900$
I'd up the PSU personally. Maybe go for a little higher.
Looks good to me. You might want to get a 650 watt psu, but the 500 watt would probably be sufficient enough for that build.
I'm wondering how well the H60 actually performs too. I would check out some reviews and see if there are any better coolers for the money. I have a sneaking suspicion that the Cooler Master V6 GT would outperform it, and it's only around $46 on newegg.
You could probably get a 7870 instead of the 7850 and still be within your price range too.
this is just a sujestion
