Hi everyone! I hope you guys can do the final inspections for the parts that I will order early tomorrow.

I will use the computer mostly for minor tasks (internet, work, basic gaming), but speeds for loading programs and startup are also important. I will often use the computer for simulations and medium-heavy gaming.

I will overclock the processor and may overclock the memory. I will be running Windows 7 x64.

If you see any compatibility issues, please respond ASAP! Suggestions for other options are welcome, but since I will be buying shortly, I will probably stick the following list.

INTEL CORE I5-750 LYNNFIELD 2.66GHZ: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115215
EVGA GTS 250 512MB 256-bit GDDR3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130468
OR (IF THE ITEM IS AVAILABLE TOMORROW) EVGA GTS 250 1GB 256-bit GDDR3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130469
G.SKILL RIPJAWS 4GB (2X2) DDR3 1333: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231276
GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3R: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128401

ARCTIC COOLING: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186134
ANTEC 902: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129058

I already own the following items and will use them.

HARD DRIVE: SAMSUNG 1TB 7200 RPM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152102
POWER: CORSAIR 750W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006
CD/DVD: SAMSUNG: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151171

Also, can anyone give me more information on the Newegg cash back deals that everyone is talking about?

Thanks a lot!

  1. that looks like a great set up. By cash back do you mean combo deals becuase heres one:


    and if you are willing to get better stuff for a little more money (very little loss for a decent amount of gain)


    those two would save you money and get you better stuff so :D
  2. Would be better to get a 4870 then a 260 performs better in most games and is cheaper would reccomend this one


    or this one if you cant wait for the XFX one to re stock


    would save you about $20 from the other combo and give better performance
  3. ehhh 260 and 4870 are about even and it would be great either way so, which ever one would work fine, but it is nice to keep intel and nvidia together
  4. how would doing that help at all?
  5. well first off, the 260 is about the same price after combo deals, secondly he looks pretty set on nvidia, and thirdly nvidia and intel are more closely compatible, so its normally good to keep them together. the i5 system works well with both though. I definitely wasn't knocking your idea, both are perfectly good solutions and offer different benefits. Look here and you will also see that the 260 slightly outperforms the 4870 in the benchmarks, but its nothing major.

  6. Which is sort of why im saying to get the 4870 because it performs roughly the same, but it is almost $20 cheaper. There is the added physx though on the NVIDIA if he mostly plays games with that
  7. exactly, either one is good, just depends if he gets the combo deal and what games he plays. I like ati so i have no prob with the 4870 as it is a great card!
