Hello all, I have 2 builds right now I'm choosing from:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DwS7
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DBjF

Pretty sure obviously the second is better, but I was wondering if I could do some cut backs(or not), just not letting the price go above the $940 build.

EDIT: Seen a build on a previous thread on this forum, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DBdw
Wouldn't be using the wireless adapter or monitor, so there is definitely room for upgrades!

Everyone agree that this is the best I could probably get for my budget?

What's this mean? Should I take out current RAM in the build if the combo comes with a free 8gb?

Hi, get the asrock extreme 4 in newegg, it's just 5$ more, pcpartpicker picks microcenter, but it has shipping costs, the default should be either amazon or newegg.
Stay with the ram or sell it afterwards.

so keep the Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory? seems like im getting mixed messages here lmao. Wouldn't be very easy to sell it around where I live if I were to purchase it.

Hi, you can stay with single channel, it will not affect the performance, but dual channel is faster, you can get another stick of the vengeance and get the total of 16GB dual channel, you can stay with one stick, or get the crucial ram and sell that stick.
Plenty of options there :)
