All Newegg prices as of today, decided to post up here to see if I missed anything. Better safe than working backwards re-ordering new parts. If you got any suggestions, in any form, by all means hit this thread.

I'm trying to decide between building this model or buying Best Buy's new Gateway GM5474 for $899.99, I'm leaning towards the build because I would rather sacrifice around 170GB of hard drive space, tv tuner, and 15 in 1 card reader for a faster graphics card and pc6400 memory.

Hello and Welcome to G2G!!

The only thing good about that build is the CPU and the Memory. If you are going to be gaming, I would suggest a better graphic card, for example for DX10 the best are 8800 and the 2900 series but for DX9 I would get the 1950 series because they are extremely overclockable and the price is good. The motherboard is a definate no, because its an old chipset.
