i found a combo on ewiz with the i5-750 and Asus P7P55D-E PRO Socket 1156/ Intel P55/ SATA3&USB 3.0/ ATX Motherboard for $370, while what seems like the same combo on newegg for $4 more with the cpu and ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard.
are these the same, or am i missing something? id rather ship from newegg.
go with techmo suggestion for 5770...it is not worth getting a 5750 now and you want your rig for gaming
Samsung spinpoint F3 is the best choice right now for HDD
and for blueray unless you are going to use it often i would not go for it...i don't really think is worth it...as DVD quality is not bad and for a DVD drive just pick any...they are all about the same price....i have a LG one right now and it works great
i just bought this one myself, i dont know if you are against AMD at all, but this is a great deal.
and you can get a aftermarket heatsink, and at this price you could get another 5770 for crossfire and still be under 1000.
i agree with jack-85 about the spinpoint but for the price of the seagate 1tb (which is only very slightly worse than the spinpoint, i think the seagate is better
not quite sure but i think there is something like 180-200 dollars worth of savings with this deal.
for the case it depends on your use for it, however the case you have on your list has no cable management features and it doesnt have too many expansions for fans. the Xigmatek has room for lots of expansion, and has some cable management features to help improve airflow. also if it is a case do you care about having a side window or not? i can find you a really good case for cheap without a side window.
as far as the 1tb 7200.12, i guess it was a limited time promo code, although it was shorter than i thought. in anycase this is a good deal too
Get back to me on the case question, if you need a side window then i still say the xigmatek, if you don't let me know. with all of the above and the xigmatek before shipping and after rebates it comes out to
before rebates it comes out to
and for that price with your $1000 price cap you could add another 5770 to it.
my purchase date got set back to mid july. ill have to get back to you guys later, seeing as how prices change. sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but you have all been a great help to me in deciding parts and ideas, thanks!
