Hello everyone, after scouring all the other threads here that have similarly themed/priced gaming build's listed, I am trying to get your feedback on my build before I purchase it.
I will be ordering all the parts from Newegg (I live very close and get stuff quick).
I am hoping to order within the next day or two- so that Newegg will process it next Monday after the Holiday/Weekend right away.
Here is my current build-- Please let me know if I am overlooking any incompatibility issues or any other oversights. I am *NOT* married to this build at all, so I would greatly appreciate any suggestions how to improve or save a few bucks.
I'm getting pretty much the same build except I'm going going for the P35 Mobo instead. I've got a friend with the same build I'm ordering and it's absolutely fantastic. You could probably go with the same mobo I'm getting for a cheaper price but if you're satisfied with that then stick with it.
You're even getting the same case/PSU combo I'm getting, idea thief!
Ok, I have made a few adjustments which has raised my price total, but only about 50 bucks OVER my budget (AFTER tax and shipping) Once you factor in 50 bucks worth of MI Rebates, I can live with that.
Let me know what you think!
My main concern was the Sonata case and PSU, the motherboard (wanted a cheaper alternative with similar performance) and the hard drive.
I wouldn't get the combo. The 650TX is one of the best PSUs out there. The CoolerMaster PSUs on the other hand have a bad reputation.
Between Antec 900 and RC-690 it's strictly a matter of taste. They're both great cases. It's just that one lets you sleep in the room and one doesn't because it's lit like a Christmas tree. If the PC won't be in the bedroom just flip a coin or something.
