Default AMD 940 build

Alright, ive looked thru plenty of Combos. with Mobo,940 cpu and 4870 GPU but im trying to find what would do me best for awhile for the money... my max would be around 800-900 dollars.. i mean i don't HAVE to have a GPU because i do have a 4870 as it is in my old comp... . but wanting a Antec 1200 case... can anyone find me a good setup within that budget.. thanks in advance guys

and this was the combo i was looking at... - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

But remeber i don't have to HAVE the GPU if i can't get it within the 800-900 budget..

Looks kick ***. You could probably save $20 if you could grab one of the 4870's hovering around $200. While still getting the Phenom II Biostar motherboard combo.

But Darknight is so **** sexy. So its worth the $20.
