sorry, OS needs to be in the build, the rest of it is good.. although I get the OS for $83 unless someone knows of it cheaper... and it does not have to be AMD, I was thinking I might get more bang with AMD.. so that's the only reason

You can get a nice intel build with an E8400 and 9600GT build if you don't mind mailing in a couple rebates. Total is $515.88 AR plus $83 for your OS = $598.88
