Going to ZipZoomFly, I've noticed that I can get the:
Patriot Memory -- $70 less
Antec 650 PSU -- $40 less
Most else is either the same or a bit more. I like the Free Shipping of ZZF, (Yes, I realize TANSTAAFL) - this sometimes makes their products cheaper.
Any other sites I should be looking at?
Comments on the build? Idea is future upgradeability, when Vista and Vista-based DX10 games come out or what not; I figure in about a year I can upgrade the GPU, OverClock the C2D (watercool, if necessary) and have a couple more years of life out of it.
Then theres the upgrade path to Intel's Quad Cores in the future as well.
Opinions on the 22" SamSung? Have a 19" CRT now, and am worried about ghosting/blurring in FPS...
GPU is kinda lame, but expect to upgrade in about 8-12 months so it should get me by.
Because I live in the northeast, newegg is rarely an option for me anymore. I save on shipping and tax when I get all my components from Zipzomfly.
One thing I don't like about your build, more over about Asus, is that board is over priced and a rip off. Something is not right when your spending the same amount on your mobo as your Video Card. Try downgrading to a more conservative mobo, your wont regret it. Then take the savings and bump your video card.
