Additional Comments: Build is for wifes parents who will basically will use this as an everyday kinda pc. No hardcore gaming on this rig, plenty of downloading, streaming(netflix mostly), music, and all things along that line. It will only be upgraded if i upgrade it, so its going to be a few years before this rig sees any kind of overhaul. The only real instructions i was given were it had to be fast and around 1K. Ready to pull the trigger on the build, but i always get opinions on builds before i do, just incase i missed something or there is something that is price/performance better than what i have. So please critique at will or let me know if ive got it. Thanks in advance.

  1. I am not a guru on much but you could probably go to a 6770 card and save some $ since they really don't need much, then again I really didn't look at that monitor to closely.

    Probably not too much help but something to think about.
  2. I did this build without a monitor for close to that. I just grabbed an amazing Samsung LED LCD on ebay for 150
