Hey since you mentioned the ASUS M4A78LT-M I think I'll go with that. This system will *not* be overclocked so as long as it does the job at normal speeds then it should be fine.

Have you considered this processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103916
Save you another $25, but is 95w C3 revision chip. A little lower stock clock, but the lower wattage might be worth it, and its cheaper. Will allow you to get the better mobo without pushing you over budget.
This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131402R $78 shipped

Yeah I'm trying to confirm with the buyer if he would be ok with open box items, seeing how there's not really any risk involved except that it might not have cables or something right?\\

I'll probably stick with the current CPU simply because this system won't have any overclocking so a higher stock clock would be helpful in the long run.

You might want to consider the BP 550+ and Gigabyte GTS 450 combo, you get 150 more watts and a great power supply (that I've used before in client builds) for the same price, lower after a $10 rebate.

And if you can shell out those extra bucks, ASUS M4A79XTD EVO at $89, $74 AR is now cheaper than ever and is the very absolute best AMD price-performance mobo you can buy, esp. for 125W processors.

You could start by saving $2 by getting the Samsung F3 at

Turns out I have an extra hundred to work with on this one, my friend "negotiated" up with his parents, so an upgrade to the EVO is definitely going to happen. Total budget is now $700 shipped.

Smart find on the PSU+GPU bundle too, I hadn't seen that.

I'll update the build and see what sort of room we have left to play with.

There are 3 relevant combo deals I could combine with the X4...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.592296

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.592295

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131631

So I can get the 790x w/ out USB 3 or one of these three mobos combo'ed with the CPU for a little additional price w/ USB 3

M4A79XTD EVO - Current Cost combined with CPU: $237.98 - No USB3/Sata6, 16x/8x8x PCI-E functionality.

M4A87TD EVO/USB3 - Has USB3/SATA6. Substitutes 16x/8x8x for locked 16x/4x when compared to the 79x.
Combo Discount: -$11.99
Combo Price: $246.99

M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 - Has onboard video support in addition to USB3/S6, same 16x/4x solution though.
Combo Discount: -$11.99
Combo Price: $256.99

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - Has USb3/S6, onboard video & also restores 16x/8x8x mode functionality.
Combo Discount: -$16.99
Combo Price: $281.99

So I guess the question is whether i want USB3, onboard video, and/or 16x/8x8x PCI-E lane functionality...

Since I'll be using an Nvidia solution it occured to me that it's a moot point since these boards don't support SLI anyway ha!

The Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 can be had for less cost with a 955, in a non-combo deal. I find it to be better than the ASUS M4A87TD EVO. Great low RDS, quality 8+2 phase, mosfet heatsink expandability (as in, full size MOS-88, not just the little MOS-C1s), SATAIII/USB3. Then again, I'm just a very very particular fan of Gigabyte AMD mobos I usually suggest Gigabyte AMD mobos when they're great for the price. The exception would be GA-890GPA-UD3H, they really screwed up that one especially for x6.
