i really have no idea what i'm doing lol, so please look this over and see if everything is compatible or if i have too much of one and not enough of the other ect. i'm buying it today.
a list of my specific needs and goals follow the build. and i'm getting the 4GB 670 gpu because after reading this...
thank you much BigTroll. i need someone to build it tho and looks like NCIX's America store does not build. i'm thinking my local Microcenter ($139), but IBuypwer has a labr day sale on and eCollegepc comes highly recommended.
i've been told the i7, 16gb memory, and Sabertooth is not needed and would save about $200 or so, but then others tell me they will help "future-proof" this pc and make it easier to upgrade later. at this point i'm not sure what to do lol. i have the budget for them but if they are absolutely never going to be a benefit, then sure i'd like to save the dough. i might drop the blu-ray thing altogether tho, as i have the PS3.
