Fixed the mobo link. Why an 8800 GTS? Why would I need that if I don't want DX10? I imagine most games will be DX9 compatible for awhile

If you dont want it, thats up to you...but you will get better performance out of 8800 GTS and youll be future proof for a while

In the long road it will save you money b/c you dont have to buy another video card once you decide you want to upgrade and go dx10

Are you kidding me!?!?!?

With your budget you can get a WAY better build than this!

The xclio is more stable and if you want to overclock it will help

Just because I said I don't want to exceed 1500-1600 dollars doesnt mean I want to spend it all. However, I will if it's really worth it. Do you have a build suggestion for me?

Its my understanding the price cuts will affect more than just the quads, but being a cheapskate who expects his pc to last a minimum of 5 more years, I don't pay much attention.

Under 1k I wouldve suggested the same.

In the other hand if your willing to go in the 1500-1600 range you can build yourself a really nice rig
