Default New Build - your comments?

Can someone help me put a i7 build together?

I plan on purchasing i7 from a microcenter location near me, so that itself would cost $199.99.

I have a budget of $750 (including the i7). I only need a GPU, PSU, RAM, and mobo. I have everything else.

With the CPU, that leaves $550 for the rest of the parts. - GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9T-6GBNQ - Desktop Memory - SAPPHIRE 100269HDMI Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

That comes out to $568. There's some MIR as well.

I assumed your i7 is a socket LGA1366. Although now that i look at the price (200 is low), you may be getting the LGA1156. If thats the case, you'll need a different build altogether. So tell us which i7 you're talking about exactly.
