ok so here we go. i went and found great deals on stuff. some stuff is a pain, some things ahve 20$ shipping, so imma look around for promo coupons ect lol. suggestions are appreciated

Antec 750 watt. 115.95$ and subtracted from that is a 25$ rebate

Xclio windtunnel (very sexy case i suggest u look into it) 109.98 with S&H

foxconn flaming blade. 174.60 after taxes and S&H. also very sexy

ocz 6 gig ram 3x2. (150$) and theres a 30$ rebate.

i7 930 @2.8 (217.25) i have to drive half an hour to pick this up at microcenter.... only for pickup, but its 80$ cheaper

and a hd 5770 vapor x to couple with my other 5770 vapor x for crossfireX

totaled is 942.78 and after a couple of months (rebates) im getting back 70$ in total so the real total is 872.78, but since im buying this through a debit card i need exactly 950 cause i cant hit 0.00

any suggestions would be VERY APPRECIATED. ive looked into everything and since this is my first build i have looked at all i can in my power to make sure if everythings compatible. the psu is the most trickiest part in all my research. screw 12v rails lol. love ya guys <3.
