Approximate Purchase Date: Friday or Saturday (29th/30th).

Budget Range: $750 Before Rebates(could Potentially be more) ($790 maybe so offer planning according to that if you want)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Fraps, Youtube, School

Parts Not Required: OS, Monitor, speakers, Mouse

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Compusa.com (Sorry, but this is the only place local to me where you can buy parts and I don't want to order. Try to go along with it! Thanks.

Country of Origin: USA, Delaware

Parts Preferences: I would like to use AMD x6 CPU, otherwise no part preference.

Overclocking: Yes, on the CPU (to 4ghz probably)

SLI or Crossfire: no

Monitor Resolution: Most likely on a 22" monitor (unaquired as of yet.)

Additional Comments: If possible please try to do links to compusa only. It will greatly benefit me, and I know I'm losing out on a lot of savings from combos. Does Rebate apply to instore pickups as well as online orders?

Also concerning the 1090T six core, what's the difference between the 1100t. All I see is 3.2ghz and 3.3ghz. I plan to overclock to 4ghz, so why would it matter?

Get an AM3+ motherboard for Bulldozer upgrade.

There's nothing up gradable about that build. First off it's a single card board...the second card runs @ x4, and why do you have a 650w psu for that card? Also you are totally screwing yourself by using only CompUSA for parts. I could post a 2500K build on here with that budget that would mop the floor with that build you have posted up above and it would be entirely free shipping.

you can get the i5 2500k up to 4.4.ghz w/out even touching the voltage just upping the cpu multiplier to 44x and the hyper 212 plus will keep it cool at that speed. and free shipping for everything. you can splurge on ram if you want but that will put you over 750$.

Sorry about the whole CompUSA thing. It's just that I'm only 16, so I may not have access to a credit card to purchase the things of the internet. Those builds look absolutely beautiful though, and I may in fact use one if It all works out. Appreciate the help from everyone!
