        Looks pretty good. Do you have a link to your video card choice because I can't find it on newegg.com?

        Some things I would change:

        1. Get a PSU of at least 600W

        2. Save some money on the CPU. Get the four core FX-4100. You probably think more cores the better, but not when apps aren't build to support that many cores most of the time (even games). Unless you like rendering video while playing games (or something like that)

          Thanks for the info! This was a computer build at the HP site. It said AMD and didn't have the Radeon in front of it like all the other graphics card in the selection.
          I was chatting with someone at the HP website and they said the following regarding the graphics card:
          The two graphics card differ in the clarity or resolutions of the game. Of course, the AMD Radeon has a better application or resolution compared to an AMD HD graphics card only.
          In regards to the CPU for the build at HP I'm only given the following choices:
          AMD FX-6100 six-core processor [3.3GHz, 6MB L2/8MB L3 Cache]
          AMD FX-8100 eight-core processor [2.8GHz, 8MB L2/8MB L3 Cache]
          AMD FX-8120 eight-core processor [3.1GHz, 8MB L2/8MB L3 Cache]
          AMD FX-8150 eight-core processor [3.6GHz, 8MB L2/8MB L3 Cache]

          No. Because if you have to ask, the answer sis no. This set of parts is non the curing edge and you can get lour finger cut, metaphorically speaking.
          Start out with something more conservative and a set that has been already toted by other home brew doers.

          I don't know what you mean, but if you're saying he should build it himself instead of buying HP, then I agree.

          Then go with the six core one.

            I'm still a little confused in regards to 4 cores and 6 cores.  ??? ??? ??? ???
            Can someone explain this????
            Will the build I suggested work fine for what I use my computer for (see below) ????
            I use my computer to play games like Torchlight or The Witcher and the only online games
            I play are at the Gamesville site or at Pogo.
            I like to watch  music videos (downloaded ones) or streamed ones (movie trailer or music videos)
            I use a jukebox program to play my mp3's.
            I catalog my postmark collection with a simple text program and program.
            I also use it to rip songs from my music CDs and to make music CDs.
            As far as multi-tasking goes, I would like to be able to rip songs from CDS, listen to music with my
            jukebox program and log my postmark collection at the same time.
            If I need a better build please give me some suggestions!!!!

            From your post, you don't seem like a hardcore gamer and you don't mention video rendering (production) so I think a four core CPU would be fine for you. You said that the minimum you could buy from HP was six, so you'll just have to pay a little more than necessary. That's why, if you have the skills, you should build your own comp.

              I'm not good enough lol. Is there a specific question or are you waiting for another opinion?
