Oh and thanks for suggesting a build, didnt even see that!
I mean't the memory prices if you look again later check betweem corsair/kingston and mushkin and price compare.
If you can get two 4gb's of ram for under 60 bucks, it beats having to pay a price tag of 45.00 or even 49.99 for one stick of 4gb.
Also much as I like the amd phenom ii 965, I will disagree with mguire fully.
Pick up that fx4100 if you haven't made your purchases.
Spec wise it does much more better than the last generation of that phenom.
Matter of fact amd used that phenom ii 965 and rebuilt it to make a better fx series.
It has the power to do alot of things and it has proven to me to be the best 4 core cpu I've seen.
Good luck with your build.
