  1. With this budget building right now isn't the smartest idea, the Sandy Bridge CPUs which were recalled will hit shelves again in March/April this would be the ideal time to buy.

    Your entire build will change buy the time march rolls around so I would just hunker down and wait
  2. +1 to the above
  3. This build includes dual soc GIGABYTE gtx 560's in SLI , monitor, and O/S.
