The budget is $900 minus the case. Im sticking with the I7 but any other component is available to change and I want to stick with quality parts. Here are the specs MOBO: ASUS P6T SE LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard VIDEO: ASUS EAH4850/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V CPU: Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz RAM: OCZ XMP Ready Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) HD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB DVD: Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA And the public list on Newegg is http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... Thanks for looking at this! More about : build review radiowars July 16, 2009 4:55:53 PM Looks fine, except get this RAM. The timings are different, but you won't notice a difference between the two. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And get this PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That way, you'll be able to CF later, and it's more future proof- and it only costs 10$, and you'll save 35$ on the RAM- it's good RAM. Also, save 40$ by buying the combo deal of the Asus P6T SE and the Intel i7 920. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... And, here's a 7$ discount (hey, it's still money) on the RAM and the HD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Good Luck. chew_12 July 16, 2009 7:25:25 PM Great thanks for the suggestions.
