Vertex 4 128gb ssd
Geforce GTS 450
16gb Corsair Vengeance
4 1tb drives
1 dvd burner
media card reader
23in monitor
2 2tb external drives
430w PSU
Nzxt phantom 410 case
i7 or i5 ivy bridge (depends on cost of motherboard)

Not looking to overclock. Just want something in the $100 price range (give or take some $)

Found this one because of 8 USB ports! But it only ha 4 pins for the power?

If you're not looking to overclock and are using an Ivy Bridge CPU, which has a fairly lower maximum TDP of 77W, (apparently this might change with future, unannounced releases) then you don't need an 8pin CPU socket.

I'm running an AMD Phenom II X4 955 (45nm 125W CPU) in a motherboard with only a single 4pin.

I think the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H is a pretty good option at that price.
