and I was under the impression actual budget is $1,100

OP said $1,500 but that has to include 2 monitors @ $200 ea.

Only has to include one monitor, the other is being sold by OP.

EDIT: OK, I think I understand the situation now. Looks like the $1500 includes both monitors.

looking at fat.clown's build makes me feel bad coz his is more cheaper than mine. maybe because of some of my parts which made the price goes up + the taxes and such.

Well when did you buy? Prices go down dude.

My build is already a month an a half away from being a year old. I think it is going to have quite a bit of longevity thanks to game developers not caring to up the graphical level much on games until new consoles come out. Oh well, saves me money.
