  2. ^Good build.

    To OP: if you don't plan on upgrading the monitor resolution, then jbakerlent's power supply is not needed because you won't need to crossfire/sli. So you can save a few bucks on the power supply

    Other than that, his build is great for your needs
  3. ^+1, and you could also drop down to a 770 board if you are not going to crossfire.
  4. Unless my math's off, your build is way over budget. Could save alot by dropping down to a Phenom dual core

    And a cheaper PSU

    That should shave 100 off the bill.
  5. I assumed 800-600 really meant 800-900, which is about the price of my build.
  6. Since you are not building for at least another month you should keep checking for deals. You can usually find a really good combo deal every once in a while and save money that way. I'm sure there will be plenty of deals on black friday as well.
  7. Does newegg do black friday deals?
  8. ^i don't think black friday offers a lot of computers deal or even any.
    for sure cyber monday will have a lot of deals on computer parts.
  9. Are there any other ways I can shave off some of the price to get it down to around 700? I really have never overclocked so that doesnt matter to me. The only things that matter for me are a good motherboard and graphics card.
