allright, so...first time builing a computer, did a lot of reasearch and decided to build one and this is what i came up with:
cpu: AMD phenom II X3 720 BE (reviews said it was pretty good, and it fits my budget, but 550 X2 look good too)
mobo: GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770
ram: crucial 2X4 GB (1333 Mghz)
hard drive: 320 gb 7200rpm (dont need much)
OS: Windows 7 pro (dont know the difference between ultimate/pro/basic)
Monitor: 1080p 21.5"
Heatsink: ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro (heard heatsinks that came w/cpu's are shit)
Tower: NOT TO SURE. Looks good, but idk im not that "educated" when it comes to towers.
No GPU, dont know what to get
Live in the USA, Gonna use this mainly for source gaming and borderlands. help would be appreiciated!
