  1. Look at this site. If you add the graphics card from the $1000 build it will get you to $900
  2. Should I just wait a few weeks for the new Intel Ivy bridge CPUS?
  3. We can't answer that for you. Read the information on them and decide from there.
  4. Ivy Bridge will save you a little on power and cooling, and will work with pcie graphics cards. If that is worth the wait get it.
