If you need a running rig you need cpu mobo ram power supply and storage. Wait til the 880 comes out (mid September).

That's a decent deal on the cpu mobo, so go for it. Then in two weeks look at what's on sale for power supply, ram and ssd/HDD.

You shouldn't be in such a hurry because you won't have a running rig till you get those. Then you can load up a Linux distribution till you buy windows.

The gpu is the last thing you should buy.

I understand, just had a run in with iitunes drm.

i can only use it sometimes. Thats why im trying to get my own player or drive to use on my pc

Since i need a drive anyways just get a cd drive since my bluray player will play dvds?

Will im getting the cpu/mobo now and i can get the ram/power supply/case/storage in 2weeks. The 4790 has integraded graphics so i can use that till the 880?

i would of liked to have a rig by Sep 16th, for my preorder of NS: UNSR. If i download it on my SurPro can i still redownload it on the new rig?

If you buy it on steam you can download it into anything with your steam account.

I think cd drives are extinct... And you can get a did drive for... Like twelve dollars anyways.

And the integrated graphics will work til you get the 880.

Many install by USB now.
I like to keep a DVD burner drive (which plays/burns CDs) for backups, sending disposable media to other people, and making car radio CD's and mp3 discs. Also occasionally you need one for older games. You can get a DVD burner for 7 to 12 bucks.
