APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week!

BUDGET RANGE: I'd like to be around 850 after shipping costs.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Blizzard games, Dragon Age, Civ IV, would like to not have to worry too much when I buy a game), recording music (which just means it has to be at least somewhat quiet)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, speakers, Monitor

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US


OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, first time doing it so will see.

SLI OR CROSSFIRE:Eventually if I go with the 5770

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I had a build ready to go yesterday, but now all of the combos are completely gone.
I REALLY would like it to be closer to 800-850 if at all possible, but I don't know what to swap out.

922 before 20 rebate -- I'd like to get it lower. I also don't know much about the power/mobo, so I'm worried that those aren't the best choices. I'm absolutely kicking myself -- should I wait for the end of this month, do deals change?
Thanks in advance!

mrhoshos96, that build looks really good, thanks! Should I hold out until later on in the month and wait for combos? Is that how the newegg combo deals happen, later on in the month?

Yes i think newegg works like that but if u wait maybe those deals will be gone.

As said above if you snooze, you lose!
