This would leave me open to doing this build which in my book would be sweet.

Total With Shipping $646.20
What do you guys think?

I would go with this hard drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148702&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=4003003&SID=krph18a9yjth

250GB it's pretty low...Since you decided Z68 make sure you use Intel Srt option which comes included.
If you got microcenter near by .. i5 2500k 170$

Personally i would go with AMD Phenom and decent motherboard and OC to 4ghz it should be around 550$ then...

No microcenter... On the OP.

i3s are better for gaming, as shown by Anand.

Well i would cancel the order and get this motherboard instead. It's worth it

i3 2100 + 8GB RAM + 7850 = diablo on max using maybe 60% gpu, grats!

Thank you sir! Couldn't have done it without you, and everyones help!

P.S. Where does this part go? lol biggrin.gif

Mehh it's $18 more if only there was a way so my wife wouldn't find out... Lol

430watts should be perfectly fine.

if it doesn't work i'll RMA it and head to frys

In another Few weeks i'll have plenty more $ So if this build isn't how i like i'll just upgrade the mobo and CPU.

( Anything is better than this junk S3700y )

But on another note Newegg warehouse is in cali so my stuff should arrive quicker ( which it always does when i order from anywhere in california ) thumb.gif

A 430 watt unit is plenty as long as it's quality, which in this case it is. Your new system will probably pull somewhere around 200 while gaming. Even if you go with an i5 2400 or i7 2600 you still wouldn't have to upgrade PSU. You have a very efficient CPU and an extremely efficient graphics card, no way your are going to put a dent in that PSU.
