Looks like a great budget list. Oh...oops...I forgot you're going the AM2 root. I'm just so used to suggesting the Freezer 7...lol.

But your old stuff. I'd say if it still works, use it for your parents.

That list is a very good budget. He has the Arctic Freezer 64 which is good. BTW how could you suggest a Tuniq on a budget that low lol.

Haha well yea thanks for the suggestion guys... As of now I already ordered the parts this morning. And the funny thing is... that newegg in my state is only like 30 min away from my house.. so I'm supposed to expect the delivery tommorrow woohoo!!!

hahah.. so fasat kinda got me excited. And I went and bought STALKER I hope its a good game to play since I havn't played a PC game in like 4 months.

Oh yea and once its built ur probably gonna see me posting about some suggestions about OC my cpu, ram, and video card. whichever is necessary. I hope eeverything goes well.

And oh yea this was a budget... just because i don't want to waste too much until july. heh.

Oh.. another question. Since I'm waiting till July.. to purchase the true pc rig I want... should I bother like getting the other stuff I do want? like the ram case psu and etc.. and just wait for that day for the cpu? or is there a possibilty that the other items might drop in price and I should just wait all together?

Yea just wait all together, there might be other price drops. But then, since the CPUs are dropping, I was thinking it's possible, they might increase prices on other components? Since they see demand going up on CPUs? I remember when C2Ds first came out, the ram prices were just sky high.
