System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming - SWTOR and Eventually Guild Wars 2. I guess school too
Parts Not Required: I have a case and power supply, i believe its 450W or 500W.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon for most of my parts and maybe Newegg. I live in hawaii, shipping is ridiculous.
Parts Preferences: I would like to go intel.
SLI or Crossfire: Eventually
Monitor Resolution: dont have a monitor, but dont include it into this budget. I will pick one up from costco. But i will take suggestions.
I spent a good hour or two looking through other threads to see if i couldnt just piggy back off someone elses post, but i couldnt find one that fit my price range and needs. Most of the builds were amd or people were planning on over clocking. I pulled some ideas from other threads and came up with this. Your thoughts?
I would like to go with this board, but i cant seem to find it on amazon. I live in hawaii, so the bulky items i would like to purchase from amazon. Free Shipping. I want something that supports crossfire. Have any suggestions.

Why The Extreme4? it costs $50 more, OP doesn't need to spend that much more on this small budget. Why get an mATX board, most mATX's are rather annoying to CF/SLI with since the sizes of cards have been increased.
