My System Specs

Default Sept build!

Looking to see what everyone thinks of this build. I wanted to build something decent that would have high end parts that carry over such as a PSU and Monitor. I got a Mozart TX case so I am good there. I wanted to get a decent motherboard that supported ddr3 so I can use my ddr2 then get a awesome set of DDR3 when i get more money then upgrade to core i7.

So in a nutshell. I wanted to build a 1/2 decent system until I can afford DDR3 and a high end core i7 chip and motherboard.

Why waste your money now. By Sept, prices of i7 build will be lower. I build my i7 (with budget x58 board) recently for under $1000 with price matching and rebates. Shop wisely and you will save
