Honestly I'm not very happy with that particular processor since I want an I-5 with a 3.5Ghz. But the other combos on there have other stuffs that I don't need.

Not so good.

If you do the rebates, it works out to only be $8 more, but this route will give you a motherboard you can overclock on.

If you don't do the rebates, it works out to only be $13 more.

@TC why are you buying a bundle? Seems like you're confident with building it. Why not just pick out the parts yourself.

You can still go the combo route, but dont buy such big bundles. Maybe cpu and mobo in a bundle to cut about $30.

I built a couple already. Just for convenience really since I haven't keep touched with the industry for a few years. I have a general idea of what I want but not sure what the state of affair is and where is the best bang for the buck.

So can anyone pick out a list for me? My budget is around 600-700 not including the OS/Monitor. And I'm shooting for an I5 since I don't think the I7 is really needed in forseenable future.

That looks pretty good. Thanks! I'll wait for a few more opinion if there is any and make the decision next week.
