you can save $90 by getting the i7 at memory express. I'd also drop windows ultimate and get premium (you wont be missing any important features). Get a Hyper N520 instead of the zalman that you picked out (its cheaper and performs better) that would free up roughly $185 for a graphics card. I'd recommend getting a GTX 460 for $200.

The GPU is the 5770 thats coming out of my current build. So i don't have to worry about that.

I also checked out Memory Express and the i7 is 319 on that site. which is 30$$ more than Newegg. Is there something I'm missing?

With the money I saved between switching to Win 7 and the other CPU cooler I could cross fire the 5770

Yeah if you read about that processor its for instore pick up only. And it don't have a micro center anywhere close.

The closest store is in chicago and after gas and tolls it would come out to about the same hah.

So my rig is going to be for gaming but also for Running Adobe Creative Suite. Would I be better off staying with one 5770 and upgrading the memory to 2 sets of 3x 6gig

Final Build Ordered.

DVD:

The video card is the 5770 that have currently have. Maybe crossfire in the future and doubling up the ram. Final build with shipping 1114$ That has thermal compound and the such. Wish me luck. I'll post some pictures of how the process is going. And the final product. Thanks for all the help and I look forward to continuing to be part of the community.
