the K version is only $10 more and allows for some combos on newegg so in my build it saved $6. plus this build can be overclocked if you decide to in the future. better to leave some options open. i was trying to fit an I5 in the build you could go with amd or the i3 and get a better mobo and case. I was grasping at straws on the case.

oh i didnt notice that promo
i think ill get my mobo and cpu from there
heres the mobo i picked
what do you think?
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...
plus the i5-2400 total $242 with tax before $15 rebate

*i dont know what is required to sli/crossfire
but that mobo said it supports it and the psu i picked says it is sli/crossfire ready
so does that mean that i can sli/crossfire?
not that im gonna do it but maybe in like a couple of years when i need an upgrade
