Thanks for the input= ) Does anyone have an opinion for the UD4 over the UD3? The UD4 has the ACC options I think and the UD3 does not but would the chance for it be worth the higher cost?

I beleive the PSU is most important because a cheap one can burn your hole rig up don't skimp on it. 2nd you can find a refurbished 4890 GPU with a lifetime warranty that play games excellent for about 159.00 .3rd skimp on your case and go small on your HD you can add another 1 later in RAID.You can actually buy a powerfull system if you find some combo's with free shipping .I bought my PC mainly from TIGER Direct because theres no tax here in cali. Enjoy shopping ! check your MVL always.
I built mine for under a grand a year ago .
