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.

The MB in the Tiger Direct Combo is NON STANDARD atx form factor with NO features. Bad MB !!!!

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 is your Best Bet considering Budget.

Skittles,

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. :) :)
