Wow that AMD Llano looks like a great option... I don't have much patience for slowness.... I think I will go for the A8-3870K option for $145. That's awesome, I hadn't seen/noticed those before, and just decided yesterday to include the BD-ROM.... that's awesome, thanks.
You definatly don't need a 750W PSU for this build.
The 1866MHz might be a tad too expensive, but the 1600MHz is worth it for sure.
I don't doubt you... I thought that RAM model was probably a bit under-doing it, since it was called "basic" and none of the other stuff is "basic" ... thanks. That bumps it over my $600 limit... oh well. I'll have to pinch some pennies around the house to do it right
