No problem, at least there you have some scope to choose any of the upgrades you feel you would like.

The deluxe motherboard is nice but the P5k-E is still a good value performer for the price

The 8800GT video card is also a winner

I liked your build but I waited to late to get most of the items so price went back up. I messed around with almost all the things you listed and tryed to put something else together. It went a little over my budget by 300 dollars (kind of high) but I think I may be better off with this. Your inputs are needed once again, because they are always greatly appreciated by me! :pray:
