Thanks for your reply Outlander. However, I am buying my stuff from a particular store because they are a good friend of mine which means even more discounts. :D

Be kind of hard for someone to post a 700 dollar build if you can get 1,000 dollars worth of parts for 700 dollars.

This ASRock board fits your budget but will have SATA 6GB/S and USB 3.0

Whatever you have left over needs to go into GPU upgrade. 6850 or 6870.
