If you are willing to build it yourself you could get a pretty good system for $700-800.

are you gonna oc? if so...how much? just a simple oc to like 3ghz, or go crazy mad with voltaage?
i would suggest the ds3l over that board since its waay better.
and the reason i chose clubit is cos it was cheaper.
And then ram i suggested is like the ballistix but has led...plus it was on sale for a great price.
