Default Final build

I'll probably order this tomorrow.I was hoping to keep under $700 but this seems the best i can get price/performance.Any suggestions good or bad on these items.Ill rob some parts from my other pc and replace them later.I.e dvd keyboard and such.My shipping is $30.I know i can use zipfly and buy some of these parts and save $10.Not worth it to me though to use 2 vendors instead of all from 1.

I think the new comp would be better at multitasking and some at gaming. but the graphics card is around the same, cept that the new one has sm3. I think the only real improvement is in the cpu -charlie
