Main Issues w/ Build:
- I don't know if the motherboard is the best value
- I don't know a good deal on a monitor
- I don't know what Power Supply is necessary, or if mine is the best value
- I want a GPU at same performance as mine, don't know if it is the best value though

- Waiting until Cyber Monday deals are revealed to purchase anything
- I do not plan on Overclocking
- I plan on playing games, browsing web, watching TV (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc.)
- I would like to browse web and watch TV at same time
I am very appreciative of any help/insight
I am more than willing to answer any further questions
Thank you Tom's Hardware Community!
