I def. would make some adjustments to save money, but you said your limit is 3000, so that's good.. more space than you'll ever need unless you plan on having a nice collection of dirty movies.

(((Referring to the build he found on another forum)))

Yeah, don't use it though.

We will help you in December, you should come back about a week before you are planning on buying and you can get a killer computer then.

Yeah I guess I was just trying to plan ahead. I guess with computers it's different. I knew they changed fast but not in 3 months time.

Well you now know. :happy:

You are a noob (nothing wrong with that), but so am I compared to a lot of guys here. Spend some time here though and that will change. After you do your build you will gain a lot of knowledge and will never purchase anything from Dell again.
