Newegg $817 build, opinions please Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: August 15, 2010 3:48 AM in Systems Share Ryuzaki August 15, 2010 12:33:04 AM Configured this build in a cart on newegg using various combo deals and the cheapest utility parts I could find. Please rate or speak up if there's any compatibility issues or low quality parts included I should think twice about. Case and Power Supply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... CPU and Video Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Motherboard and Memory - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The total price is $817 after shipping, is this a pretty good price for the performance I would get for gaming (SC2, Diablo 3) and ample opportunity for future upgrades?

The Caviar Blue may be cheap and reliable, but it's slow and possibly runs a bit warm. m 0 l Ryuzaki August 15, 2010 3:13:56 AM I would look to Crossfire at one point. The motherboard says Crossfire/SLI ready, what's a good alternative then? And I want the PSU to be a little high because of future upgrades m 0 l Proximon August 15, 2010 3:48:55 AM Regardless of what it says in the promo, you want a board that has PCI-E slots that will run at X8/X8, not X16/X4. Here is a deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... And another less expensive option but does not have USB 3 or SATA 6GB/S http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
