Hey Rabbit... That PSU has a $13 shipping charge.... could possibly use an Antec for around the same price naturally and not have to wait on the rebate

Eh, I'd still go Intel core i3, it can be done, and greatly for under $700. You have the case already, so here are the rest of the parts.

Processor/PSU combo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.592904

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131599

Memory:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152173

DVD:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106335

That comes out to $615 shipped, and has $50 in mail in rebates as long as you're not lazy on them. It'll preform wonders, and come in under budget as well.

If you want aftermarket cooling I'd grab something small and quiet like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2.

It's $30, and I've used them before, whisper quiet.

Nice setup overall, but why would you put a Gene motherboard in a budget build? I mean can't you find a board that is a little cheaper?

It's not a budget build, he gave us a budget, there is a difference, and I came in well under that budget.

this looks like it should be more than enough for them

another thing, i still have about a month and a half to build this (my cousin's bday isnt till the 21st of next month)

he also said they won't be overclocking. So the gene board is kinda pointless. You could put that extra money into something else.

I love these ROG boards for the X-Fi sound built in. It's not that it makes things sound differently, it's that it adds more sound channels. When I used to play Mass Effect on my Gigabyte 790x boards sound chip it would run out of channels if a lot was going on and sometimes the gun would sound like a tin can. Got X-Fi and all those problems disappeared.

There is my reasoning.

I don't get why going with the ridiculously overpriced X4 925.

Either a 955 (which is roughly 10$ more) or with an Athlon X4, which is good 30-40$ under that.

That chip is plenty powerful to move almost anything you want it to.

First question: do you live near a Microcenter?
Secondly, OS needed?
Suggestion to follow
Just because there's 4+1 phases doesn't mean it's going to be horrible or blow up or anything.

As long as there's airflow over the VRMs/MOSFETS it'll be fine. Hell, I had an ECS motherboard OC'd to 3.8ghz at 1.4v on my 955 BE when I had one, and it ran like a champ. No problems for months. It's mainly the x6 cores that are making problems for the 4+1s and that's with really high voltages.

As for the OP, if you're on a budget the board I have is pretty nice, but get the 88GMX instead because it comes with ACC in the BIOS.
