$820

theres a $10 MIR and with shipping you should be pretty close to budget.

HDD prices are slowly going down, but nothing like it was a month ago.

My shot at it, and about a 2gb video card unless your going to run 4+ monitors its pointless

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK LOKI SD963 92mm HYPRO Bearing CPU Cooler bracket included I7 i5 775 1155 AMD and dual fan push pull compatible

not a quad core but for what you what to do a duel should be fine. and with the better PSU you could crossfire down the road and with the after market cpu cooler you can overclock

$822.91 total with shipping

theres a 10 dollar off code 'EMCJHJG54' for the PSU ends on 12/19 that brings the total to $812.91 out of pocket

aswell as 55 dollars in rebates tho imo never count on them

I hate to count on rebates myself BUT if you wanted to count on that 55 bucks you could pick a quad-core
