CPU/Motherboard is a bundle at microcenter,
Free shipping from NCIX on orders over $100 (I think),
And since I have a $70 amazon card, I applied it to the PSU/Cooler.


Before we begin, here are some pre-build pics, enjoy

It's time to draw the line. I'm going to purchase whatever we decide on tomorrow morning. This build is for gaming and browsing, fyi. That being said, I need to hear your guys feedback. If you have even the smallest concern about this build, please tell me. Anything you'd change at all, again, please tell me.

I do have a question though,
The extreme4. How is the board? I heard talk about the extreme3 being terrible, is that the case for the extreme4? Anything I should be aware of? Do you suggest another board around the same price range?


Besides that, how is everything? Do they match well? Anything I should look out for, anything. Just tell me. Suggest anything. And thank you in advance for anyone who is willing to help a new builder out, it means a lot. -tyler
