Because i'm waiting for my next check, yo! Didn't exactly need it right away--my laptop literally JUST broke as I was putting this build together in my head and it really upped the need to build this computer.

Need to post pics of the completed build. The ones you have don't show me anything so I can't upvote

I don't understand what more you want. I have one with everything in and the top/side plates off. The HAF XB is also a test bench so some could argue that it already is completed at that stage. And if I do put the sides and top on it'd be a picture of just the case. EDIT: Actually, I already have a picture of the case, monitor and whole setup so I don't know what more I can do.

I actually got a hugely great deal on this BRAND NEW 2500K; not sure what the price said when I selected it on the part picker but my real one was $70 from a friend who got it in a mix up with a local shop. Also, I have a real weakness for my Sandy Bridges. Don't know why, but my next one is definitely an Ivy Bridge. 3770K most likely, but we'll see.

You can manually enter the prices you paid. $70 is indeed a great deal.

Yeah I know, about to do that now. Was in a rush just picking them when I made it but yeah, thanks for the comments!

Also, single channel memory because i'm adding another. I'm going to use it for music production and i'm going to need at least 16GB when I start loading up my EastWest samples. This is going to be my daily/homework/internet/chill build while I have two more--a dedicated gaming and a dedicated music production--builds on the side.
