In this price range you will want an i5.

Edit- Opps scrap that, though it was $860 not $680.

I would not like to change the build, I have got confirmations from other places it is compatible, and 100% good, I just wanted a second opinion, I dont want intel, Im an amd guy, have been for 10 years, Intel is overpriced. And to the other guys question, Amazon is TAX FREE, and I get 30 days return FULL refund no newegg return bs, and then, I would like to keep the dvd drive, Its a cheap good one from amazon, and I would like to stay with amazon, Thanks for everyones replies, I would just like to get a yes or no, confirmation that it works. Thanks

Just FYI, intel is not overpriced actually, they have faster products which justify the price. Having said that the 960T is a good choice in that particular price range, but offers no real upradeability. The Phenom II line are the fastest CPU's that socket will ever see, and they aren't making them any more in preference of the slower FX chips.

Ok, I understand But that 4 core cpu, is cheap I can get 6 cores possibly unlocked, For 115$ you get a dual core not quad, dual for the same price, and gain maybe half a GHZ. Anyway lets not argue about that, the fact is its the cheapest quad core i can find sufficient fora 3.66ghz over clock, and I need that for my engineering work, accompanied with a beast cooler. My point is, will the build work or not. Whoever can answer this, BEST ANSWER.

Thanks as always for the responses, Gobless.

Ok it is a very good computer in the price range. Only thing I would change is the memory and the case. Also since you can upgrade to CF in the future it would be better to spend a little more on a PSU that can support two 6870.

Case because you want good ventilation, not just the cheapest one.

Memory because you want to take advantage of the dual channel speed. So two sticks not just one.

Any of these will work the NZXT one is the same as the one that comes stock with the case and the cooler master one is a good deal if you don't mind the led's.
