So i was waiting for Newegg to come up with some good deals this 4rth of july weekend but here's what I got till now.

SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7-Retail

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ - Retail

Combo -- AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Black Processor Model HDZ720WFGIBOX - Retail - ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Total comes to $489 + shipping - $25 MR. So no money left for a good Case :(

Apart from this I have a WD Black 1TB Drive from Dell.com for 100 bucks that I will get with a gift card.

I am still stuck on a case. I like this one but I'm thinking may be it is too plasticky!!

I am planning to order these aprts over the weekend unless NewEgg puts up better deals in teh next couple of days. The processor would this one. May be I'll change the PSU or graphics card if I see a better deal.

Everything looks good? Looking for some final feedback on the build.

Thanks

i'm not so sure about that alien case, but at the very least get an antec 300 or the cooler master CAC-T05-UW.

I would stick with your first PSU... Corsair. It has more power, better manufacturer and at the same price. I would only get the Cooler Master if you are getting a great combo deal you can't pass up.

Either way... the 600W+ will power your system but doesn't leave much room for adding a second video card.
