More about black friday build ordering asap build quick advice
  1. The RAM is just fine. That's a good deal. You should jump on it.
  2. thanks for the quick reply. do you have any recommendations for graphic cards? i was thinking 4870 or 4770 or even maybe 4890 but not sure which one.
    also am i missing anything else? or any other things i need to buy? thx
  3. There's a big difference between the 4770 and the 4890. What do you plan to use the PC for?
  4. Some gaming like modern warfare 2 and l4d-2 and eventually starcraft 2. I kinda screwed up and meant 5770 sry
  5. 4890 or gtx275 should be okay.

    5850, gtx285 or 5870 would be better, but a lot more expensive.
  6. If you're going with windows 7, try to find a 5850 (they're hard to find in stock, but have dx11 support). If you don't care about the dx11 support, there are some good prices on the 4890.
  7. ok thanks i think i will be going with the 4890 most likely as it's alot cheaper than those above
  8. Antec has teamed with Newegg to offer the 900 case for $60 (after rebate) as part of their black Friday deals:
    I like the rest of your build.
  9. Hey your the same as me lol, Search for the combo deals, im gonna buy mine tonight or tomorrow too!
  10. Oh im sorry to contribute, if u buy a, ASUS P7P55D Deluxe LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail, u can also get a 650 Corsairs one, which is on sale with a 20$ combo, CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 ... - Retail.
