Just figuring out my new build, this is what I have as an idea so far. I would like to play games in the medium to high range, so decent-good performance overall and upgrade over time. Specifically, I would like to upgrade to the i7 and Radeon HD 6990 in a few years, or the new Radeon HD 7xxx series when they are released. Here is my build.

Parts not needed: Keyboard, Mouse, OS

@008Rohit , I saw an ASRock MoBo that was $75, pretty much the same exact thing as the Biostar one except the ASRock one sacrificed 2 channels of RAM for 2 USB 3.0 Ports. Think I should get that instead? It didn't get as good as good reviews as the Biostar one.

@michxymi , how's this monitor?
