    This Build . . What Am I Missing?

    Ok so I recently cleared my cache not remembering that it would clear my cart. I also cleared all my emails. -_-. Now I had to reset all my buys on NewEgg and re-add them to my cart. But . . . This time I ended up aroung $40 - $50 Short. What am I missing. Look. BTW: If you think I should get anything different or a different item please tell because I don't know if I got all the right items when I re-added them.

    Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - $49.99
    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DL004 1 TB - 5400 RPM HDD - $69.99
    ASRock 970 PRO3 AM3+ AMD 970 Motherboard - $69.99
    XFX Double D FX-785A-CDFC Radeon HD 7850 2GB Graphics Card - $224.99
    CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W Power Supply - $79.99
    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) RAM - $52.99
    AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz CPU - $94.99


    Total: $642.93

    Btw, if you want, can you find better parts for me if these aren't good enough?

    Again, a 5400 RPM drive is not that great when going for a gaming computer. I suggested the F3 with the thought in mind for getting the 7200 RPM one. If you cant find it, or cant get it for a reasonable price, a Barracuda or WD Caviar Black will suffice.

    The 965 is not anything to behold in wonder, but it will play most games at higher reso's with pretty much no problem. 1080 might be pushing it unless youve got the GPU to back it up. (you do)

    Newegg's prices change frequently. Deals and promo deals come and go, along with package deals. The price may fluctuate a bit until you just buy it.

    For another HDD, you can get the WD Black 7200 RPM 1TB for $99.99. The Black series of WD's drives are for performance, so they're good boot drives (though not nearly as good as a SSD).

    I personally don't like the look of Corsair RAM (aside from their ultra expensive Dominator Platinum RAM), so I'd go with G.Skill Sniper Series DDR3-1600 8 gb (2x4), you also save $2.

    All the other stuff looks okay, but... ASRock motherboard ..... ultra meh. I'd go with the MSI 970A-G46.

    Also someone correct me if I'm wrong but he'd have to manually over-clock his RAM to reach the 1600 speed with that ASRock motherboard.

    Just my $0.02, take it or leave it.
