btw, the last link points to a GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 alone, I hope you didn't calculated that as both...

here http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-272540_13_0.ht... you can find a nice build for about 400 before mir, try to play with it, maybe you can get your build with a ati4670 gpu in it.




I actually added up the bundle with the mobo and CPU. Also like in my intro I'm going to be using my 8800GS with this build. Thanks for the responses.
