I will be buying these parts on Friday/Saturday, so if prices change, I'll update them. After I say my parts, then I'll say my upgrades and my planned upgrades. I will note that I am using my old Kingston 4gb 1066mhz untill Christmas, then I'll get something nicer. Also, my hard drive and ssd will be used from my old system to this. Aswell as my disc drive. I bought a new copy of Windows 2 weeks ago, cause amazon was selling it for $67 so I quickly picked that up. Okie, lets begin.

As I said before, 8 gb of ram. My last upgrade is a 7850, to replace my 630. How does this build look so far? Any adjustments?
