Then I would use the extra 100 saved to get an i5 4440 instead. I haven't seen any really good deals myself.

By the time I'll be home to search for you it'l be almost over. Just look at what I've linked before and see if they are on sale.

for RAM does it have to be two sticks?

PS - the GFX is out of stock at newegg..do you recommend any others? or just search amazon instead for the same one?

Not really that hard to type "GTX 760" in the Newegg search bar and find one. Here's another eVGA.
EVGA 02G-P4-3765-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Dual Superclocked w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card - Newegg.com

And an MSI.
MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com

THe processor I linked before is still in stock and what you should go for unless you up your budget for an i5 4440.

If i use paypal with Tiger Direct I can save $25 on orders over $100 so i am thinking of grabbing a processor from there and when i searched i5 i get the following http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...79_53259_53259 Which one is good from here because they unfortunately don't have the 4440

unless you think Tiger Direct is not a good retailer to buy supplies from.

Also wouldnt it be better if i got a 4 slot memory holder Mobo since i can use my RAM from the old PC?

Intel Core i5-4460 Processor - Quad Core, 6MB Smart Cache, 3.4GHz, LGA-1150 Socket - BX80646I54460 at TigerDirect.com

The motherboard will be slightly expensive but yes you can.
