This whole thing is really anoying because lots of people at home say I should stay with MB and you guys say these places. The reason why is probally because I know that MB has a great reputation and i've been taking to them for a long time with great answers from them.

Well one thing you can do is supply MB with the specs i gave you and see how much they'd charge and that will give you a good idea of actual price differences. I shop locally too but i use ncix as a price guide. My local store BM bench mark prices mactchs and can actually beat NCIX on most items plus there's no shipping charge. The decision is yours, but with your current setup the computer is mid range at best... with the specs i supplied you can get a highend system for about the same price.
BTW. we are just trying to help.... no one is gaining anything by confusing you. plus your local computer store is selling you something so their honesty is questionable (i might be wrong, and they could be very nice folks). A question you have to ask yourself is...... Are you confident enough to assemble your own rig, do you want continous support on your computer? What do you wanna do with the computer? Gaming? Media Center? Or just daily usage.

Also, this computer is going to be paid by me painting the house this summer, which i'm doing right now. I get paid $8.50 an hour, so money isn't a huge deal to me.
I really want to go to MysteryByte for some strange reason. I really don't know why. Maybe because I can ask them everything about my system quote and such. I could get them to tell me anything.

If they can give you it cheaper go with them otherwise get what you can where you can for less ordering on line is ridiculously simple it will take 15 mintues to order the parts once you have decided what you want.
I would probably stick with the 7600GT save the cash on the gfx card for DX10.
And by not going to mysterybyte you can get A. a better case and B. most important a high quality PSU a poor quality PSU is just asking for trouble.
IF you can ask anything, HAGGLE get your system cheaper.

$50 for assembly
Total: $1261 + Tax + Shipping
thats not alot considering what your getting. the reason why its like $70ish more is because the mobo is a better version of the k9n, its the SLI Platinum, but if u insist on the neo4-f, just go to PCCanada, they have it for like $100.

Your OS dont get Pro get MCE or home youll be wanting DX10 and vista so no point wasting the cash now on a ridiculously expensive OS.
Have to say i agree with Tru Techie about the case its pretty crap case, to me it doesnt look good alot of its personal choice but alot of people i know who pick cases of that type(looks on the gawdy side and over function) usually regret it later and wish they got the simpler but functional case and the nice thing about the simple cases they are easy to add things on and they can also be removed later which means you arent stuck with gawdy looks, although i dont agree on the cav5 the first gen of cav5s like that one i dont like i prefer the 530s if you are getting a cav 5. Or get an Antec with the PSU that saves alot of cash.
