    That build looks pretty good... But... Why use a SeaGate HDD? Samsung and WD have better performance at roughly the same price.

    I have used Hardware Revolution for my first pc build and will be building my 2nd pc tomorrow.
    They have a forum to review your parts list, too.

    Check them out at this link:

    This Newegg video series (videos) was also what I used for good instructions:

    Hope all the above helps you; it helped this pc build newby to a successful build.

    will play most of this year games at high, some at normal (bf3), you can expect to play some of next year games on high.

    If you want more, you can use a 500/550 power supply with a 6950 or a 560 Ti video card.
