Default Finally Ordered!

Well after reading and waiting and shopping around I finally just decided what the heck and ordered my new build.

NZXT Alpha Black Steel ATX Case
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6660
Asus P5Q Pro LGA 775 P45
Asus HD 4850 (Mobo and GPU combo saved me $30:nerd
Patriot Viper 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800
Antec NeoPower 550W
WD Caviar SE16 640GB SATA
Tuniq Tower 120
Lite-On 20X DVD Burner SATA
Annnnnnnnnnnd 22" 5ms Widescreen Acer LCD

Order Total: 1,189.80 Shipped and $55~ in MIR

Should have ordered yesterday though. With Friday being a holiday, I'll have to wait to Monday to get everything. What you guys think? Hope it can last me a while. Now just have to wait on Fallout 3 and Diablo 3.

Looks good

You should have really gotten the Rifle and the 650tx, but its still a great build

Got the NeoPower because of the modular cables and the great price. The Rifle and the Tuniq 120 seemed pretty close from what I could tell. I went with the Tuniq b/c I didn't know if the Rifle came with thermal paste and ordering paste and paying for shipping made the Rifle as $$ as the Tuniq.

Oh yea, it certainly is. But the Acer was $219 and that's $289. Not to mention $219 was already pushing my budget to the max.
