Hes itching to order it so I can put it together for him.

Again, Thanks for the suggestions and information.

ASUS Black Blu-ray Burner SATA BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS

Ahh dang- the price on that RAM went up to $51 now. Was $39.99 just a few nights ago.

Anywho, if he's content with that price then go ahead and order it and throw it all together for him. That 1100T will be great cause it has the 6 cores for excellent multi-threaded performance, but also in single threaded apps when turbo kicks in punching a single core up to 3.7Ghz that'll really help as well. I'm certain he'll enjoy it.

And again, you're very welcome. Glad I was able to help. Just be certian to post pics of the final build and some gaming results with that setup. I'm really interested in that 6870 myself simply cause the price is right... but I can't make up my mind if I should snag one or wait till early next year for the 7950 or 7970.
