Nice pick on the processor and mobo. Looks like a good budget system to me.

You're right space_coyote. His budget is close though. He might have to give something up, in order to get ram.

Thats a very nice system, u cant call any core2 duo system budget, even though they are inexpensive...that being said:

-Ram

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211064

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098

that case is pricey, could you do better?

this case with a side window is amazing bang for the buck:

Otherwise, great build.

Rosewell m/k? you might do better with a Logitech m/k.
