TOTAL: ~$730 w/o the heatsink and before taxes. The $800 budget is a little flexible but not very much (maybe $50-$75).
So how does this look? Are all the parts compatible? Is there anything I'm missing or things that can save me money? This is my first time building a system so I'm not sure how to go about this whole process. Any help you guys can provide will be really helpful. Thanks.
Hey thanks gkay09 for the suggestions. I don't know why I picked the IDE CD/DVD drive... must have not been paying close enough attention. I'll edit the original post with your improvements. However, the PSU you picked is out of stock on Newegg. Since I'm going to be buying within the next week or so, do you think they'll restock in time? Or is there another suggestion you might have?
