    Newegg.com - Open Box: ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

    Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX

    Newegg.com - CORSAIR Vengeance 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model CMZ12GX3M3A2000C10


    $560.97 and you get more processor, and more memory

    if you went with a quad core its about 75 cheaper unless you went with this quad core
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103934 then its only 20 cheaper


    personally I would choose amd over intel any day of the week, but Im almost like you are with amd... I havent had a lot of dealings with intel (what little I did have wasnt good)

    I would have posted but you really don't want my advice when it comes computers. The only thing I know about RAM is that ender and pasties seem to know how to do it and they do it well
