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

Monitor: LG W2286L Black 22

Processor: AMD P2 965

Heat Sync: Cooler Master V8

Thermal Paste: Tuniq TX-3

MotherBoard: Asus M4A79XTD EVO

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600

GPU: XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770

Optical Drive: LITE-ON Black 4X BD-ROM


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. 50001306 1035424340&name=32MB

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.
