I'm trying to build a budget gaming pc that has room to be upgraded in the future when I have more cash available. I am trying to stick closer to $700 so any new years deals would be great.
----------------------------------------------------------

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within a week or two. BUDGET RANGE: USD $600-800 Preferably before mail in rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: mouse and speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: no preference (whatever is the cheapest) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: none really just looking for the best bang for my buck.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe in the future SLI OR CROSSFIRE: again maybe in the future

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680 x 1050

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Will probably upgrade again in late February so i can skimp on some aspects.

Here's what I've got so far:

I am looking at these parts from newegg and I was wondering if anyone had any comments and if you guys could verify that everything is compatible. And anyway to drop down the price while not sacrificing too much performance would be great. Thanks

It's too late now. Put 'em together and see what happens! I assume you have a keyboard and mouse...
