Darkpriest667, Thanks very much, I"ve got many things to check out, as I said I was only guessing at the parts that I needed. I've been reading every thing on the OCN site and the picks I made just looked rite to me. I do have a cable TV background, cust installs,cert tower climbs to 200 ft, built head end systems from the ground up, so this looks like it will be alot of fun. My comp tech keeps telling me I'm going over board but I'm trying to build some life into this system and just trying not to go as cheap as I can. Thats why I bumped the budget up to 800-1000. I should come out with a system that will be good for 5yr or so. Thanks so much for your info, I'll be checking every thing, again thanks very much......starrunner...

Hey,

If you're in New York, check for the nearest Micro Center around there. Some crazy combos going on.

Thanks very much, the closest micro center is in long island and I live right between Buffalo & Rochester, NY. I'll give them a call tomorrow.

Thanks very much that's the board I was asking about. Pulled it up on new egg....

There are two Microcenters in NY. They constantly have CPU+Mobo deals. Even if they are not currently running a deal, their CPUs are the cheapest.

I suggest you give them a call before hand to see if they have any Intel combo deals. I do know they have AMD combos at this time.
