I'm looking to try and build my first computer and need help with knowing if all the parts work together or not


Those are the parts I picked out, looking for a higher-end comp for gaming, graphics, and possibly video editing.

Any suggestions to change parts to get closer to 800$ without sacrificing much?

Everyone says it's cheaper to build a computer yourself but it seems I'd be much better off getting this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16883227134

and just selling the 9800 and get a 4870

Any help/suggestions would be great.

Welcome to GeeksToGo,

My name is Cbarnard I hope I may be of some assistance to you.

I'm sorry at the amount of time it has taken to assist you. I apologize for this we are a very busy site.

Please keep in mind this is not our job and I'm not here 24\7. It can take a little bit of time for me to reply back to you,
if it has been more than 48hrs since a reply, please PM me and I will be with you as soon as possible.

With that said lets take a look.

Everything looks pretty good on your wish list except:

Ram you could purchase PC 8500 instead of PC 6400 this will equal more speed

here is OCZ ram
$36 after rebate

You don't have a hard drive listed

here is a 1tb samsung
I use these in my builds and have had good success. $89

and finally a PNY 9800 gtx
$114 after rebate

and I would purchase this Vista 64 instead $99

With this version you could purchase a second set of ram and have 8gb.

Keep in mind that the rebate for the ram is most likely good one time.

The PSU you specified is $39 after rebate

the MOBO you specified is $115 after rebate

and the case you specified is $55 after rebate

Right now this build will cost less than $800 after rebates

If you have any other questions let me know and I would be happy to help you with them
Good luck
