Seems out of my price range anyway.

looks like if I go with the current setup I have $430 left for the Mobo, HSF (if not stock), RAM, and DVD-RW.

Alright how about this Mobo? Newegg.com - ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
More than I need?

Does anyone see any bottlenecks in this build or is it pretty well balanced?


Thanks again for all you input.

Still need to choose a graphics card, im on the fence there.

Still looking for RAM and a HSF for around $200, any suggestions?

So what do you think, is the best that $1100 can get me or is there something that you would change?

Keep in mind that I would like to crossfire as a future upgrade after I upgrade my monitor.

Why not get this card: Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H485F512P Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

It comes with a game "The Grid" and a nice $20 rebate.
