Building My Own Gaming PC
Hi, my computer recently broke and I am going to build my own. I have a pretty good understanding of how to do it but I was just looking for input on wether this is a good setup or not.
Ultra X-Blaster Black ATX Mid-Tower Case and Ultra LSP550 550-Watt Power Supply Bundle
Asus EAH5770CuCore/2DI/1G Radeon HD 5770 Video Card
Seagate ST3500418AS Barracuda 7200.12 Hard Drive - 3.5", 7200 RPM, SATA 3G, 500GB, 16MB Cache (OEM)
Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9AG 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 RAM - - PC10666, 1333MHz, 8192 MB (4x 2048MB), 240 Pin, Dual-Channel
MSI 790GX-G65 Motherboard - AMD 790GX, AM3 ATI Hybrid CrossFire, CrossFireX, PCIe 2.0, DDR3 Memory USB2.0, RAID, HDMI, DVI, VGA
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition AM3 CPU HDZ965FBGMBOX - 3.40GHz, Socket AM3, 6MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Retail, Processor with Fan
All of this together is costing me 786 dollars.

That Ultra PSU is garbage...
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Elite 460 RS-460-PSAR-J3 460W ATX12V V2.31 Power Supply
heres a better board for less,
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
For my money I would get a cool batmobile video card!!!
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R577UD-1GD Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
OK truth is I'm cheap and I would talk myself out of it because THIS card is just as good and cheaper.... (BUT not as cool looking)
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Cases are subjective and up to the user, but you can get a better case for less on Newegg, may not look the same, but will be better for Fan mounts instead of using that cases little caddy things to hold the fans, as well as have better Airflow through out the case.
All of these are free shipping.

This one for example: Newegg.com - Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ,comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fani7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
