Another New Build

Looking to go fairly cheap here trying to get it under $800 before rebates if at all possible... Any suggestions that won't lower quality to much? I was thinking about a different PSU but was not sure which one would still support what I want. Without further a due:

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 - = $39.99

PALiT XAE/48500+T352 Radeon HD 4850 - = $169.99

PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W - = $109.99

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 - = $69.99

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P45 - = $129.99

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz - = $189.99

Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - = $39.99

Total w/ shipping and tax = $836.66

Anything I can change to make this cheaper without losing performance? I do not need a monitor/hard drives/DVD drives all that will be salvaged from older systems.

  1. Save $20 on the PC Power and Cooling 610w power supply. Great quality and plenty of power for a crossfired 4850 system
    Save another $15 on the HD4850 with (in my opinion) a better cooling solution.
    Which motherboard are you using ?
  2. lol whoops didnt realize i missed the mobo. Thanks for the tips, made the changes!

    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P45 - = $129.99
  3. This is a nit pick, but from what i've read and the people i've talked to i'd seriously consider changing to the Asus P5Q Pro for an extra $20 (free shipping) extra bonus is not screwing with another rebate. Asus just seems to have done a great job on their P45s
    again, it is a nitpick and if you're a Gigabyte fan then go for it.
  4. Another benefit of the Asus over the Gigabyte is Asus's Express Gate. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it sounds like a mighty nifty little feature. It's a 5 second bootup into a preloaded linux desktop for quick access to internet and email and simple stuff like that. For people like me who don't leave our rigs powered up all the time, that seems worth the extra $20 all by itself.
  5. awesome thanks guys, ordered today!
