I don't need a HD that big, but it would be nice. Im not sure the difference between the XFX 5770 or the Sapphire 5770. Also, I'm not sure about the Case. I like the CM 690 II Basic by Cooler Master but its rather expensive for my budget.

I don't understand what you mean here. how would there be no point in getting a 955.

and you can't really say that an athlon ii quad is "newer" or more "recent", some athlon ii's are based off of the same phenom ii (daneb) core, they're just crippled to turn em into athlons.

me and muffin both gave you a killer build last time (see: $500-$600 PC)

but you decided they weren't to your likings... you want a better looking case, like the CM 690 II, you have to cough up the cash.

because you a local guy, here's a similar build, maybe you'll talk about it this time. (what you liked, what you dislike) or make another thread, cause I really like the forum to be swamped.

Oh, and I know its cheaper with these combo deals, but I really just want the Idea of what parts to use, Because I can't afford a $700-$800 Investment yet. And yes, I would really like a future proofed system. And Sorry for being so picky... Its just the way I am.
