Mace, build your rig on newegg wish list. Then build the same rig at the Microcenter website using the closest store to you.

Take a drive Saturday morning to Micro with your Newegg wish list and your Micro list printed. I will bet that the price wont be that far off.

I bought my i7-860 for 200$ last march when the egg wanted 279.$ Add in the shipping your gonna pay to egg and the fact that they ship comp cases, your HAF, in the box they come from the factory in, add in the risk of dropped, dented crushed boxes and the 2 hour drive to Detriot starts looking better.

I did what I suggested above, drove to Boston and they price matched everything u see in my sig list below. I ultimatley save 65$. Not a big deal but when you walk thru the store, picking up your rig parts and looking at all the other components and stuff... it's neat as hell...

I think that NH-D14 CPU HS will be a real tight fit in that HAF 932... Did you check if that Noctua won't interfere with your side fan? RAM clearance seems good.

If you see my sig rig (which I built under roughly 2k$ also.. KRW here) my CM Cosmos S BARELY fits the NH-D14 with a custom 200mm sidefan. Unless of course you're planning to use the system without a sidefan.

I would either wait till SB is fixed, or wait for bulldozer. I would say >$1300 go intel, <$1300 AMD. (May change with how Bulldozer pans out)

I'd hold off a couple months and get a sandy bridge build when the fixed motherboards come out, or just get one off of ebay or amazon and don't use the affected SATA ports - my deluxe board has 4 sata ports unaffected by the issue, and that's all I need.

for $2000 you could get a higher end 1155 board, the 2500K and SLI 560s or 570s. Or you could back down a bit on everything and watercool it. the rig in the OP is a terribly inefficient use of $$

I amazed by the amount of responses I have received, this is pretty sweet. At the moment I think I am pretty content with what I have. I have saved around $200 by swapping out better price/performance parts. I will leave the wishlist build link in this post and anyone else with suggestions please let me know. I don't think the price is that bad.

I would ditch the Noctua HSF and get a Rasa watercooling kit for $129

http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-75...t-pr-4753.html

Ditch the 560's and get 2 of these 5870's with premounted waterblocks for $486 to add to the loop.
