  1. Why tigerdirect? They have high prices and poor selection.
  2. SLI or Crossfire at any point in the future? The build I'd recommend is most of the parts I used (see my signature). One obvious switch would be to the A version of the board since they no longer make mine (I think) or to the UD3 version if no need to dual card. Look at the cheap logitech keyboards, I got one for about $15 and it works great (in games, etc.)

    because i have a store close by, well their old store which was bought out. it would be easier for me to go buy it there since i work almost everyday and cant be home to recieve my packages. i would rather buy from newegg.

    Thanks for the help. your setup looks good. i don't think i am going to use SLI or Crossfire for now. i think one card is good enough for me. If i decide to go to multi monitors and upgrade everything (it would be a few years) then i would go to SLI or Crossfire. For now, i want the a good gaming pc for the money i have. Thanks again.
  5. Well, then you can drop down to the UD3 version and save some money. I also agree with proximon, look at newegg as well and see which has the best prices. Also, see if you have a Microcenter near you. If they still have their i5 for $150 that is a good deal to get.
