Good afternoon everyone, I'm new to script mining. Could you tell me if there has been any new hardware items that could possibly be considered an upgrade to any of the parts listed in this guide?

Basically has there been any new hardware pieces newly released out there that are better to use since this "build" dec13' post.

Thank you for any advise you may have.  :)

Hmm... forget about GPU rigs, unless you have free power and get the GPU's for free.
ASIC's are here already, read around the forum and you will find some suppliers and reviews.
And welcome to the forum.

What would be the average to spend on a first time rig?

+1.

When I built my first rig over a year ago they cost around $1200-1400 (4x 7950, mobo, sempron CPU, 4GB RAM (2 GB sticks), 8GB USB stick w/ OS, 1200W PSU).  That rapidly ballooned after November as AMD GPUs doubled or tripled in price due to surging demand.
