Nice setup wes. Though I'd recommend an i7 if at all possible. unless you're getting a good deal on the i5 and can upgrade it later.

Based on the reviews I read, when it comes to gaming the i7 is only minimally better as the video card is the real bottleneck.
I made the mistake of ordering the Psu at micrometer... It shows a ship date of the 24th. I'd cancel and order on Amazon but now the price has gone up. :mad:

Also boards make a difference, why are you getting onboard graphics?

So if I were to order the same Psu from Amazon to get it sooner, I assume there would be no problem returning the micro center one to Amazon when I receive it. The Mc one is 30 bucks less after rebate, but I won't receive it for like a month.
