More about build suggestions building time
  1. plan on using it for gaming, upgrading in december, and the parts i listed were from newegg

    Sorry for double post could not find "edit" button
  2. Xigmatech HDT-S1283 cools as well for about 1/2 the price.

    An HD4830 would be plenty for that monitor.

    The PSU is massive overkill, although it is a good deal. The VX450 would be plenty of power.
  3. +1 for theAnimal's suggestions

    If you can afford to upgrade to the 940BE then do it, it is only $20 more in the same combo deal with the mobo.

    This might make it more affordable:

    If you play Crysis then keep the GPU you have, otherwise the 4830 is plenty.

    That case you chose is awesome, but unless you have a lot of hot hardware (and you don't at this point, I'm talking 4HDD's, OC'd CPU and 2 GPU's) then you don't need it's cooling power, this would be fine:
    or even this if you really wanted to cut back:
  4. If you're planning on upgrading in december you may as well buy a cheap i7 setup, then at least it will be compatible with future upgrades.
