Here's a budget build i put together, made it to be future-proof and able to play most any game at mid-high settings. Can be upgraded for RAID and Crossfire, as well as being AM3+ for future bulldozer upgrades. What do you think?

how would that save me $100? wouldn't bulldozer cost more? i mean i know the performance would be exceptionally better but this cpu is more then enough for most anything i would want to do with it, and later on if i wanted more power i could upgrade.
