More about update system monitor build
  1. Do *NOT* get a Raidmax case - they are not the best quality cases on the market. For an extra $10.00 you can get one of the best cases on the market in it's price range: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

    And then get the 960T over the FX 4100 - it will save you a ton of installation hassles because of the BIOS upgrade that's required before install. Try this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103995

    And then for the RAM get 8GB - 4GB won't get you very far these days and can be had for an extra $20: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178382

    Other than that it looks good. But definitely take those suggestions into account. And you should read up on FX before buying, start here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/windows-7-hotfix-bulldozer-performance,3119.html
