ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: (In order to keep down costs until I can secure more funds I am willing to use my GeForce 8400 GS in the extreme short term. However, if I can keep the rest of the system in the $1000 range I will go ahead and buy one as I am fully Aware the 8400 is not fit for a system of this caliber.)
If I did my math correctly the system comes out to about $1,036 with free shipping on all components. This is my first time building so I am mainly concerned with the compatibility of the aforementioned parts and whether or not I missed any. I would also like to know if anyone sees any room for further cost saving as any savings would go towards a graphics card. Thanks in advance!
