Seems like a pretty decent system to me, maybe upgrade the processor to a 3800, or OC it. If your looking for prices ive found www.newegg.com to have nice prices, and www.mysimon.com allows you to compare the prices from each site.

What made you decide to go back to the 3500+?

Well I don't really have enough money or the need for a dual core processor, and the 3500+ is a reasonable price. I can't really see the 3700+ making that much of a difference. I could be wrong, and by all means, tell me if that is the case.

It's not much of a difference, but it might give you that 'edge' feeling; knowing you bought the best you could.
Also, I recommend the x-530 speakers. They are only 50$, like 20$ more than the ones you're getting, but it's surround sound 140w peak.

But the 3700 has DOUBLE the l2 cache......That could come in handy later...
