Actually, how about this build, I really want Nvidia Parts so I decided against choosing your MoBo but tell me if this one is any better?
Why? The HD 4850 is a faster card than the 9800GTX for the same price, and a P45 motherboard will not only be cheaper than a 780i, it will also be a much better overclocker, have more features and you won't get any of the general Nvidia chipset problems.

Sorry, I've been away on vacation and couldn't bring my laptop. I live in Canada and could not find the HD 4850 on the Canadian site so I decided to go with the 3650. Tell me if I should get a different card. Also, I've completely remade my build. Here are the parts:

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...?EdpNo=3923862
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...?EdpNo=3574211
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...?EdpNo=3952222
Will they all work together?
thanks in advance

Here is the HD 4850. But you may not need to spend that much on a graphics card, it depends on your screen's native res. I explained this bit in a previous post. If you don't want to spend so much on a GPU, there is the HD 4670 which is about 348343343x faster than the HD 3650 and only $30 more expensive.

I would go with a different PSU/case combo though. Cooler Master Centurion 5 and OCZ StealthXStream 500W.

HOLY COW! the HD 4850 costs as much as my processor... I know for sure I wont be able to get that. The HD 4670 is only 8 dollars cheaper than my other one. OK so here is my new build... tell me if all the parts will work WELL with each other
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=O261-2009
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=A271-4670
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=C283-1086

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...=CP1-DUO-E8400
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=B450-2356

wait...the PC case comes included with 1 80mm fan and 1 120 mm fan. Doesn't that mean I have to throw out the 120 mm fan included to install my PSU/fan? Also, on a scale of 1 - 10, what would you rate this rig?

*EDIT* Would this be a better MoBo? http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...897&CatId=2547
