Can you post it in this format or next time:

Antec VSK-2000 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $37.99 Free Shipping (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129069)

So that we don't have to link to the page to see the part? That is usually how it's done.

In any event, I ordered this today w/ a 5850:


Antec (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129069) VSK-2000 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $37.99 Free Shipping
GIGABYTE (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128400) GA-P55-UD4P LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
2oz Copper PCB, Support 2 Way SLI & CrossFireX plus Smart 6 $169.99 Free Shipping

The above items came to $657 (shipping is entirely free)


Except I got a different case:

Thermaltake (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133074) V9 Black Edition ATX Computer Gaming Chassis with Dual Oversized 230mm Ultra-Silent Cooling Fans VJ400G1N2Z Mid Tower $99.99 ($74.99 after $25.00 Rebate)

What advantage is there with the different RAM and is there a significant difference with the mobo?

Your good as far as compatibility is concerned. Does your friend have a certain budget for this build?

The builds are very similar in price: $582.94 vs. $556.91. When just considering: Case, CPU, Mobo, PSU, and RAM. Is one better than the other? Or are they essentially the same?

Nice combo steveroger. You pretty much get a highend mobo for the price of a normal one.

His budget is a little over $1200. He's going to get a 5850 when it's available on Newegg along with a monitor.

If you take Steveroger's combo and power supply, along with the rest of your parts, with this monitor (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009157), a copy of Windows 7 64 bit OEM (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116754) and this Sapphire 5850 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102857&cm_re=5850-_-14-102-857-_-Product)(currently in stock), the total comes up to $1331.83. If this is too high we need to find things to cut down.

If this is too high we need to find things to cut down.

I just arranged to do an RMA on my power supply. Newegg is honoring this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.274972) combo:

1. Thermaltake VJ400G1N2Z:
$99.99
2. Seventeam ST-750ZAF:
$109.99
Combo Discount: -$30.00
Combo Price: $179.98
$25.00 Mail-In Rebate Card
Price After Mail-In Rebate(s): $154.98

Seventeam is a new power supply company and the supply got great reviews. So I just save myself $80 without having to use the rebate on the Antec power supply. Included is the $20 that Newegg gave me towards shipping on the combo.

Gotta love newegg.
