Hello
Ive built computers before but never set out to build a gaming rig before.
So I have a few questions.

I know what hyper threading is, but is it really worth having on a gaming?
Also what are the down sides?

Heres what im looking at building

Case: Antec 1200

Processor: AMD P2 965

Optical Drive: LITE-ON Black 4X BD-ROM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106325

PSU: ENERMAX REVOLUTION85+ 1050W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194039

I need a suggestion for a hard drive. Looking for some thing <$80 preferably SATA

Dose anyone see any problems or incompatibility issues with this rig?
Also should I save some money and get the ENERMAX REVOLUTION85+ 850W version for a PSU.
And does any one have some info on the dx11 graphic card drivers for x64 windows 7? from what ive herd the drivers aren't all there.

thanks in advance

Re: Tweeting this rig

WD Black series Hdd's have a 32MB Cache and 5 yr. warranty.

I've heard good things about the Enermax PSU's but I would stay with Seasonic or Corsair at this time. 750W would be fine.

SeaSonic S12D 750W $110

CORSAIR 750TX $110

I prefer Sapphire or PowerColor for ATI chipped GPU's.
