Default Re: Build me a new system!

Thanks for the help. Looking at the system options I think I will wait a little while to build and see if any prices drop (and to save some extra money). I came in over budget when I combined what I liked from each list presented. Thanks for your help with this and I would still be open to hearing others opinions on the build. Prices don't include Combo discounts as I may not get them.

I am going to try the 750w supply for now. I am getting $80 dollars off it and the hard drive together right now. I changed my mind again and am going to go ahead and order the system. I can't wait for a new rig.

Not that it wasn't a good deal. But I am financing this through a program at work and it makes my life a lot easier if everything is on one receipt. Sorry I couldn't help you out with it.

Its all ordered, hopefully Newegg can get it here by Saturday to be assembled and start the set up process. Once I get everything going I will benchmark it and post a screen shot..
