  1. I agree with that build but you can combo the optical drive an the cooler (heatsink) together for $10 combo savings

    and you can combo that graphics card with a OCZ 700W PSU and theres two of them.

    The first link's PSU (the Mod) is a little more powerful than the other one but the second link's PSU the stealth)is quieter and cheaper too and have a bigger rebate). They both have 700W and theyre both around $60 too after MIR. and theres a combo discount too. If you do these combos that save you around $50 in combo savings and give you mail in rebates too and a better PSU. Its a win-win.
  2. + 104.99 for a OS
  3. don't waste your money buying an OS, just download it then use an activator, that's what i did, actually every single windows os i had on every single one of my builds where downloaded, then cracked, it's extremely easy and there are no cons about it you'll be able to use every single feature anyways cause it'll detect it as original software. just be careful with which updates you download
  4. graphics card is sold out on newegg, have any other link where I could purchase it?
  5. Just over $1k but with 23 incher Full HD LCD hehe Swap out kb/mouse for a wireless N USB adapter? $926 with $2 ship w/o LCD
  6. A-data mem? not very resounding, are they any good?

    He may go that route on a personal basis, but piracy should never be recommended on a public forum
  8. i think the OP already bought the rig i suggested a month ago "APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this week", he didnt reply to any other comment, no worth to keep suggesting things
