Thanks for the reply dangtx
After doing a bit more looking around at others builds I've so far come up with this:
AMD Phenom II X2 555 (or a 720 X3 could still be possible)
G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-128000
XFX Radeon HD 5770
WD Black 640GB or 1TB
Heatsink and thermal paste:
CM Hyper 212+ and Arctic Silver
Antec 300 + some case fans
I'm undecided, but I'll probably just pick something made by Corsair or Seasonic in the 500-650 range (modular would be nice too, any suggestions?)
After Windows 7, shipping and handling, and assembly I'm hoping to stay under $900, with the sale tonight and price matching I thing I should be able to. It would also be nice to get another win 7 disk for my laptop and a good wireless router, but those can wait.
Any comments or criticisms are welcome!
Oh and would ncix be willing to partition the hard drive the way I want if I get them to put it together?
I'm looking to upgrade to SSD in the future and it would be nice If I could get the OS on a smaller partition to make it easier.
