It doesnt look bad at all.
But I'd suggest $60 less motherboard and $60 more CPU = ASUS P5E Deluxe X48 and C2Q Q9450 2.66GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...

How firm is your ~$1300 budget? Looks like you're going over a bit?


Not real firm, just want to keep it around that price, not counting the monitor and thanks for the input.

Yeah, get different memory, I took advantage of the lower price it had before (it was $90) when i ordered mine. I would get the patriot or something for half the current price. For the hd, consider the:

not for size, but for speed. I just ordered this because of all the great reviews. It was way more space than i needed. Heck i was considering a 160 gb drive, but couldnt pass this one up. Also, Directron has it for like $5 less.

That mobo is discontinued i think. Try to find it on the asus website. lol. They still are supporting their x38 version though. weird. I went with gigabyte ga-x48-ds4 great reviews on this.

Look back over the posts of the last week or so on this board, there are a lot of good discussions of builds in this price range.
