I just want to get a understanding of what to be looking at and if what I am currently looking at is on track. I would also appreciate any advice towards what processor, as well as any advice towards if something should be changed.

FYI : First prices are w/o discounts to provide a more accurate future price, and estimated; Second is with the current discount, and estimated. Also, combo deals are not included as they will probably not be working tomorrow or the next.

  1. My Recommendations:
    Antec 300 Illusion and Antec EarthWatts EA650 Combo | $124.98
    ASUS M4A77TD and Athlon II X3 435 Combo | $144.98

    Specially, if you are planning to purchase by the end of the month. If you are going purchase in a few months, I would come back than and ask again, since the deals and pricing won't be the same at that time.
