if its for college if ANYthing, invest yourself with a good 24" monitor and keyboard and mouse if you are going to do a lot of desktop work. it will make things easier for you to do projects off it.

That should come out to $1900. You can just downgrade to the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX to save $40. The difference is the FX runs 2 PCI-E lanes @ x16 x16, while the GX runs x16 x8. x8 is like 1 - 2% worse. The FX also is suppose to overclock better but, thats like whatever.

Also put the H50 in push/pull for better performance.

Well, the 1090t brings 6 cores to the table first off. Then you have the ability to upgrade to Bulldozer in 2011 Q1.

The performance is pretty much the same as the 920. But, you get a lot less heat and power usage.

Plus the x4 965 performed better or the same as the 920 when it came to gaming, so the 1090t should one up that.

The HAF-X should be coming out very shortly here as well.

And of course, the SSD is just for faster access times, which means faster loading correct?
