    Sweet. Well here is set-up once again (this time tuned with your guys' suggestions)

    Case- Antec 900
    Motherboard- Asus M3N-HT
    CPU- AMD Phenom II X4 940
    RAM- OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM 1066
    Video Card- Asus GeForce GTX 275 896MB
    Hard Drive- Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM
    Monitor- ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" *

    Total came out to $1075.88
    More than I expected to pay, but I feel more confident now about building my PC.
    Thanks to all who helped me =DD.


    *was going to get the Acer 23'' monitor, but this one is on sale and specs are slightly better and same price








    PSU- Antec True-Power 650w

    Cool, everything looks great, I'm sure you have another pc to chat with us as you build if you encounter any issues, we're here.

    Have you picked out the cd/dvd drive?

    I see you have an ASUS mobo there paired with OCZ RAM; not a good thing to do.

    If you haven't bought everything already, take a look at this build:
    Grand Total = $990 approximately with free shipping on all items, and not counting any of the rebates.

    It should be equally powerful compared to your currently-proposed system while being cheaper.

    As Another side note :) hehe!

    The only intel/Amd compatibility compatibility issues you will run in to is processor and motherboard.

    Hard drives, graphics cards, power supplies, sound cards and most other stuff is cross platform and will have no issues running on either AMD or intel :)
