More about please appove budget build ordering today
  1. HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $1 more, but a lot faster.

    Optical: SATA DVD burner $22 shipped. Saves $4.

    Mobo: ASRock 880GM-LE $23 more, but it's a current chipset and is higher quality. Plus, a nVidia chipset on an AMD board is generally a sign that the board is going to be absolutely terrible. If you absolutely can't strech to this board, the cheapest board with an AMD onboard video chipset is the Biostar A780L3L at $6 less than the ASRock.

    RAM: Team Elite 2 GB $1 cheaper, and faster too.
