then why are you tell him to take it out of the part list when your pc is not even that good why just tell me its just thermal paste and i bought some even know my cpu cooler had it on there i cleaned it off and put better paste on it and then i upgraded my cpu cooler which i needed thermal paste so its nice to have sitting around specially when you work on computers allot....

I commend you for being so mature.

xXmjzXx, stop. Your making yourself look like an idiot.

As for the build. Its a decent $500 build, however if your stressing out over the $26 motherboard I would agree that the thermal paste will make no difference. Additionally, that graphics card is fairly powerful for that motherboard, and don't expect cpu scaling to be very good. If I were to recommend anything, it would be to get: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=61189&vpn=GA%2D78LMT%...

Thanks guys for your input! As for the motherboard it's regular price seems to be about 50 but i'm bidding it for $26. There is 1 hour left and if i can get it then ill prbs go with it for now.

And as far the paste goes, I'm debating about getting it because Im thinking to get a cpu cooler other than the one that's included because it's generally better. Eventually (in a year) I'll have to buy it anyway because i'll be upgrading.

Thanks again guys!
