A budget would give me a better idea.

Give me a budget, or a idea of what kind of build you will need, and what it will be used for?

All I saw was COD5, but, what else?

COD5 = Call of Duty: World at War, the latest from the call of duty series. Good game by the way.

Don't have to use, just throwing it out there

Total is $925.40, then $20 mail in rebate. You can choose another case if you want, it's your own personal preference. But I left some room, money wise, for an OS if you need one.

Yea, the Q9550 configuration is more powerful than the 940 Phenom II.
