Was making it come down to less than a $1000 BUT you interrupted me so now I'm out time to post links. :( : (
You don't have to only shop at Micro Center, can order parts from any where in US that has a better price.
NO that's alright, I was just trying to meet your budget and come up with some different better parts.
Right now you really don't have the money to make a Good Build considering new parts are being introduced daily for Ivy Bridge.
Your FIRST Build will always be more expensive as you have NO older parts you can use so therefore you have buy everything all at once.
But the video card not work with it idk ima go to micro after work see what's up prolly just order that one from tiger maybe. Only one way to find out. Bed time for me got work sigh.. Thx again for help :)
Hmm took one last look saw ur post and noticed the newegg one has a pcie3 slot and I read somewhere u could put pcie2 in it and it works hmm aren't those the same mobo or diff cause If same maybe micro has wrong specs lol knowIng my luck there diff haha anyways bed time
READ THE COMPLETE MANUAL FIRST BEFORE YOU EVEN TOUCH A PART !!!!!!!!! :) :)
IF YOU DON'T COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND SOMETHING, DON'T DO ANYTHING WITHOUT ASKING FIRST. :) :)
