    Congrats on the training! As far as building you system now, it doesn't make sense. If your not buying until October, the computer market will totally be different from now. Intel's Haswell CPU's will be out soon and AMD might have something else come out, all before October. So recommending you a build now for a October build date doesn't make sense. Now if you were building in a few weeks that would be different. Don't get me wrong, we are here to help, but if your not building until October, please come back closer to your purchase time and we will gladly help you then.
  2. Ok, thanks for the advice! I appreciate it
