Umm, I would just recommend waiting to buy parts till you have the cash for all of it. An 8400 kinda sucks. Getting a nice processor like that isn't going to help you out at all if that is what you're using.

If you want to buy now I posted this build in the other $700 thread u saw. Granted it would be cheaper for you cause you don't need an HDD or optical drive.

$230 CPU + Mobo - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
$255 (After MIR) GPU + PSU - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
$100 RAM - Newegg.com - Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model 996587B
$70 HDD - Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
$40 case - Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Elite 330 RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
$22 - Optical Drive - Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA CD/DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners

Total: $717

Just out of curiosity, where did you find an i7 930 for $200?

If you want to save some money you could re-use your older computer case temporarily. It will be a little bit of a pain to have to migrate everything to a new case later on down the road...but then you'll have more to spend on the actual internals. Although, I have a feeling you're like me and have a really ugly case, hence why you want a much different looking one. My case is so lame that the CD burner sticks out all retarded looking....thank you Gateway, lol

ya from your description my case looks as bad as yours and the i7 is 200 at microcenter but the dam store is 2 hours away from my house lol o well and to Druid ya i saw that post but i need the i7 because i do alot of video editing as well, well not yet but plan to lol its kinda my hobby. The reason i dont want to buy the graphics card right now is cause i want to buy one really good instead of one alright card you. I want to buy the ati 5870 if i buy now all i can get is 5770 i should have the money in 2 months for the card lol and the 8400 will do for now but ya the card does suck. So can you help me find an intel i7 build with a good overclocking mother board. This what i got so far let me know what you guys think and if theres like cheaper ram or mother board that does the same as what i listed let me know no point in spending more money for the samething.

ram $109 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277

4gb of ram

MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
HARD|OCP Gold Editorís Choice Award so I guess it can't be bad, another member of our forum community also spoke highly of this board, can't remember who though.
or
GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
can't go wrong with them gigbytes

and some ripjaws
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

How does that sound 17 dollars over budget may change the case because of tax lol what do you guys think about everything all good quality stuff is that a good overclockable motherboard. Did i miss anything is there a better mother board that does the samething cheaper lol and also i7 930 which is $200
what do you guys think about this motherboard should i get this or the asus http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128423
this one also seems like a good motherboard its cheaper then the first one i listed but i dont know if its better. Newegg.com - ASUS P6T SE LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
