I dont know if anyone has dealed with Mircocenter before but they dont charge a restocking fee. But without the UPC they may give me a problem and really only want to offer me an exchange. I wish I looked you guys up earlier. Dont know too many people that build computers. I think a year from now I shoudl beable to use my warranties to return the parts and get different ones since they probably wont have those in anymore.

Just sell everything as new on ebay. Include all the boxes and accessories, and charge the full price.

In my opinion though, you will be fine for at least 2 more years with that CPU.

I mean is it really worth trying to return or sell on Ebay?

With the current trend in parts and the move to better technology I will have to probably replace everything I purchase in 2-4 years anyway? in 2 years I spend another what $600 and replace the motherboard and processor and use the rest.

Or am I really missing something?

No, just stick with what you bought. Its a fantastic rig, just a step behind the newest stuff.

Guess thats what I get with my first build and not really knowing alot about this stuff...

Its a learning curve and if I stay up to date from here on out. Maybe acouple years from now when I feel this rig doesnt cut it, I will know what to buy!

Exactly, 1366 and 1155 are basically equal. Especially since you said you want another GPU, 1366 will pull ahead in that.

Seriously, I know that feeling when you just found out you could of bought something faster. You shouldn't feel that way, your rig is awesome

EDIT: You did a great job building your first rig, on my first (built) rig, I bought a Phenom II 550 BE and an Intel 755 motherboard...

So as an over view. So I know where to go from here.

Picking up a SSD would a good move. Anymore RAM or another video card would be a waste.

And eventually if I can return it for new parts down the road its a good idea.

I wouldn't say a new video card would be a waste, but an SSD would be an awesome investment, SSDs make all the difference, just make sure to look at guides for optimizing windows for SSDs after you buy one.

EDIT: After the SSD, then buy a new video card.

SSD will definitely help but I'd try and get at least 150GB if I were you. Boot drives fill up awful fast with 64 bit Windows and all your programs/games....

Yep, go with at least 128GBs, you will be able to fit all your main files on that.
