CPU i7-950 - 220.

Total=960-75 MIR=885

Obviously I have a MC in range and am heading there tomorrow. Anything else I should look at picking up there? I have read that it is only worthwhile for the CPU.

Suggestions are needed and welcome as I haven't touched a computer component since 2002. Thanks in advance.
