Thank you so much!!! I have only one more question: Can I put off getting the graphics card and still run the computer?

Nov 12, 12 at 11:11pm

Yep, that sounds about right. Good luck on your build!

So about $700 more dollars to finish it up?
CPU + Graphics + power supply + disk drive.

Ok then

i5 2500k CPU $220
GTX 670 $380

Upper mid-range stuff.

Actually the graphics card and CPU I'm willing to spend extra on assuming I get the bang for my buck. I think I need a Nvidea to run Amnesia. Oh and I don't know if this makes or breaks anything but, I'm wanting to use an HDMI cord to run the system onto my TV.

This is the equivalent priced CPU that is compatible with your motherboard
Power Supply
Optic Drive
Graphics card

I'm not too sure on the graphics card since I don't purchase AMD graphics cards, but they're definitely cheaper (and less powerful). Since you are presumably on a tight budget, I thought it could do.

Oh, I can also get a free copy of windows 7.

Well I have somewhat of budget (mostly Christmas money), but it's supposed to be a gaming computer.

^factoring on those, what is your budget? is this a gaming computer? anything else it may be used for? do you have a copy of windows?
