    So I decided to build myself a new gaming rig, here's what I have picked out:

    GIGABYTE AM3 DDR3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Mobo ($126)

    XFX Radeon HD 4890 1GB Video card ($200)

    AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Processor ($119)

    [strike]HITACHI Deskstar P7K500 500GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive ($54.99)[/strike]

    Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA ($29.99)

    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 ($74.99)

    COOLER MASTER ELITE 335 Mid Tower Case ($39.99)

    The current power supply I have listed is a [strike]Antec earthwatts EA430 430W Continuous Power[/strike] ($70), but I'm unsure whether or not that'll be sufficient power.

    The total for everything, including a Logitech G11 Gaming Keyboard ($58.99), is [strike]$853.96[/strike] after tax and shipping.

    Suggestions for any alternatives for this hardware are appreciated!

    EDIT: Replaced power supply with an Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ($80)
    Replaced Hard Drive with Western Digital Caviar 500GB 7200 ($70) New total: $880.42.
