  1. For the same price, you can get a much faster hard drive. Swap that to this 500GB Samsung.

    Other than that, it looks like a decent build. Some nice combos in there.
  2. it looks pretty good but for the same price a samsung spinpoint f3 hdd would be faster and for an extra $20 you can get a 1tb
    for the power supply going with an antec or xfx would be more reliable for long term uses


    xfx power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.440193 (this psu will be more than enough for that graphics card and shoould be able to handle crossfire down the line)

    hdd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185

    or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181&cm_re=spinpoint_f3-_-22-152-181-_-Product

    or this psu/case bundle:

  3. @aford10 i think im just gonna stick with my current hd since WD has a long warranty and it's $16 cheaper
  4. Right. The promo code.


    That is of course your option. Just know that the Samsung will top the WD blue in nearly every benchmark. The warranty is the same on both drives.
  5. anyone else wanna put in their 2 cents?
