That looks decent.

Why don't you find out exactly how much your dad is going to give you before you finalize a build. . .

A) No biggy. Lot's of us are.

B) Hey, you have an entire community here to help.

C) Just show him the current list and see what he says. The worse he can do is say no.

true... i will probably show him coming up here soon...

i probably won't order these parts until summer is here...

how long do the parts take to ship? and how long would a first time build take?

also, what do you think about the processor? will there be bottlenecking? and is it easy to overclock this one like prodigy said w/o buying an aftermarket cooler?

and is that case good? cuz its made of plastic... and, idk
