It is supposed to come the 21st, I got two day shipping. I only forgot one thing... AS5!

Do you think I could find some locally? I've got a Best Buy, a Circuit City, and a couple small Mom&Pop stores around. Including one that's Abit certified

I see a problem, no sound card, I suggest investing in an X-Fi, and those X-530s arent that great, I heard them over in circuit city and I was originally going to get those, but I dont like them, get the z-5500s I think those will be a lot better for you or get a promedia set up.

metalkobra, you gotta respect his budget lol, maybe those were all he could afford, I mean he could do what I did and go from 2.1 Klipsch Promedia>5.1 Logitech Z5300e and eventually end up with $499 Onkyo HT-S780 1000W 7.1s I have now but really, he probably doesn't have an extra $500 in his budget, also, I got my AS5 from CompUSA so do you have one of those?

CompUSA? I think so. And I did get a sound card. An Audigy 2 ZS Platinum at $197-$100 rebate... And my limit was $1600.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

I dislike the Opteron for reasons unknown, even to myself. Besides, getting a 146 or 148 Opty would be very hit or miss... I don't want to leave the brunt of my OC capability to luck. I know the 3700+ is the same way, but there also haven't been messures taken to limit the overclock by AMD (a la sucky new revisions). That's my stance. And DFI doesn't "officially" support Opties.

if you go with audio...go with onkyo for consumer brands...prosumer brands are waaaay different, but you'll enjoy onkyo whatever the system is...shoot the stereo 8211 version is very good...just a matter of speakers at that point I hope your setup goes well...I don't see a monitor btw...you already have one?

EDIT: BTW, I'm stubling drunk at this point and it's taking about 4 mins to write this little edit, so take that with a grain of salt
