    How does this stuff look? Please tell me what I can change if anything. I won't be buying this until towards the end of the year (it's hard to get emone when you can't get a job), so it'll gradually shift to whatever my budget can buy.

    I dunno, doesn't seem like that excellent of a build for the cost.
    On a personal level, I hate Radeon cards, but whatever works for you.
    For the most part, you're just not getting enough. 3.0 Quad core and 8GB of RAM isn't that much, and 500GB is a tiny hard drive imo.

    Someone with more experience can probably give you a better setup, but all I do for my computers is buy a prebuilt for about $800 and throw in a graphics card and power supply.
    For ~1100 I have an HP desktop with a 1TB harddrive, 8GB of RAM, and a 2.6GHZ quad core and its like 2 years old. For the same amount of cash you could probably do way better now.

    However, I'm also not including your Monitor, fancy mouse, and fancy keyboard, so its probably a better deal then I'm acknowledging.

    This is why the only computer I've ever bought is a $300 craptop. I don't like dealing with all this crap.

    Once you do it a lot, then you start to love it. Honestly, I'm not too good with finding out what's compatible with what, but I could actually put that thing together blindfolded.

    How's this? This setup comes to ~$1040, a whole $200 less than the other one.

    ATI is fine. 8gb ram not that much? Wat.

    That's because building computers is incredibly easy, all you need is a screw driver and an hour.
    The semi-hard part is actually diagnosing and fixing problems with built computers.
