4-10 Business days seems pretty unlikely Ill get before Christmas thought I'll give newegg a try if you'd like to assist me, just remember my budget is low hence why I was planning on using the Barebone.

Btw, Updated my specs so see what ya think if theres anything im doing thats not right.

You are getting a case and a power supply that you are going to throw in the garbage.....whY?? Why are you getting memory cooling for that crappy memory?

WHY ARE YOU GETTING THAT MOTHERBOARD?!?!

Start over.

I started over, comments and suggestions are welcome, really wanted to go cheaper on the motherboard but I really don't know how to pick a motherboard tbh.

I would change the cpu to a Intel E8500 and the motherboard to a Biostar TP45HP. The E8500 is faster and overclocks better than the phenom.
