    ^ You sure your build is below 800$? OP needs monitor and OS.

    Check out my siggy build for 600$

    Swap the i3 2100 for the i5 2500K & This motherboard (+120)
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.660741
    Then swap the GPU for the 6870 (+50)

    Change the F3 1TB to the Seagate since it's cheaper in CA
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697
    So it totals to $770 for parts.
    Here's the monitor ($120)

    OS ($100)

    Total: $990
  2. Ok a few more questions

    What about this mobo and cpu
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.660744

    And i thought I should stay away from seagate hd's, any other options?
  3. I think there fine now, 7200.12's have been solid HDDs.

    That combo is overpriced, plus you're not going to CF/SLI so, it's kinda meh. Might as well go with the combo iKyun said if you want the ability to CF in the future.
