Its already pushing 695 after shipping. I'm not ordering it until I get paid Monday. I just want to know what was so bad about my previous build? What could you do if I pushed my budget up to 750 after shipping?

Regarding your build:

DVD Drive - Alright
Case - Atrocious. I've only heard Linkworld one or two times in my life, and you would have gotten no features at all with that case, no cable management or decent airflow
HDD - For $10 cheaper, you could have gotten the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB, which is 7200RPM
GPU - Alright
PSU - lolol. Logisys? lolol. 550w is a good voltage for your build, but my laptop AC power supply is more reliable than that. Corsair and Antec are the main PSU brands to trust the most
RAM - Heavily overpriced. For just about the same price, you could have gotten 8GB 1600
Mobo and CPU - Both are heavily outdated. Go with the 1155 socket.

Eventually. But probably 4 of them.

If I stop wanting them I'll go with 4 of the next gen.

Is it possible to upgrade this build with money later, or would I be better off spending 1000 later down the road?

I would switch out the GPU and try to fit a 560 ti in the budget with $750. Not worth going from the 2300 to 2500k if you aren't planning on overclocking.

you can upgrade whenever you want, that is what ive done. I started out with a decent $1000 rig and now I only have 3 of the same parts from the original one, lol.
