final price is 938.82...it has the latest 955 cpu, which is great for gaming, 4 gigs of fast ram, 500 gig hdd, and the super powerful 5850. the ways in which it is future proof are:

1. it is am3, which will last a long time and into 6-core cpus, unlike 1156.
2. the mobo has the capability for xfire
3. the mobo has sata 6 and usb 3
4. the psu is good enough to handle xfire

all in all, it looks pretty good :)  even has a great heat sink for you to try out overclocking :D
