I recently bought a core i7 from micro center while they had them for 200, and I was finally going to go ahead and finish the build. I am planning on re-using the drives from my current machine, and was looking to get an opinion before I went and bought the parts I am looking at for this build.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: By Friday at the latest, looking to keep the price below 500$ after MIRs
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Photoshop, MS Office, Movies, Internet
PARTS NOT REQUIRED:
300 gig Hard Drive
DVD RW Drive
GTX 260 Core 216
That PSU recieves my HELL NO, that little red switch means no PFC and its not 80+ certified so it hasnt necessarily passed a 100% load test, this one costs $15 more after MIR and wont blow the crap out of your system, if you plan to run SLI though you should go up to the 750TX just to be safe. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
