Hey guys, i'm pretty new to this stuff and was wondering if i'm getting any parts that i will regret or are incompatiable or if i could swap any parts out with some that are cheaper and do the same job.
I just really wanna make sure i'm getting the right parts.... I'm going to be using the PC for mostly gaming (call of duty black ops when its out) and surfing the web youtube etc.
Just general feedback etc would be nice, thanks heaps
Tower case: NZXT Zero 2 ($232)
DVD Drive/Writer: Samsung SH S223C ($50.00)
CPU Processor: Intel i5 760 ($331.00)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar black 1TB ($156)
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 Dual channel 4GB 2x2 GB ($221)
Motherboard: ASUS P7P5DD-E ATX ($277)
Power Supply: Antec 550W ($170)
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 460 1Gig ($380)
Those are also in NZD the total for all those parts come to $1817 which is $1368 USD i believe
Parts i'm getting from http://www.pp.co.nz
=/ Yeah.... Hate to see people get ripped off. Buy a PC from somewhere else.
Wow thanks man, I know those are USD figures but still... I used a currency converter and if I ended up getting all my parts from newegg instead of that NZ computer store pp.co.nz I would end up saving $580 NZD ($437 USD)!!!!
That's such a massive saving, now I just need to know what kind of price the shipping will have as i know it will be quite pricey to have parts shipped from the U.S to N.Z but i doubt it will be $580 shipping lol hopefully not.
Thats actually a decent price for New zeeland.
Hehe yeah we always get ripped
This is an awesome community, i didn't expect such a quick response from ppl, much appreciated guys
That case you listed is in there for the same price.
Are you from new zealand? i didn't notice computerlounge, actually pricespy.co.nz doesn't seem to pick it up for some reason O_o
Those combo deals are really good, i also found another combo deal on there that would be ideal http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... (CL EXTREME LIAN-LI K62 DRAGONLORD CASE + CORSAIR HX650 PSU) cheaper than getting the antec 550w and NZTD case and it gives me that extra 100W for if i decide to put in another GTX 460 in the future and i think i like the look of the lian li case more
hmmm is the SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON HD6870 1GB GDDR5 PCIE worth the $40 more? instead of getting the gigabyte geforce gtx460? http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... if it's alot better i'll get it but if not i'll stick with the gtx460
and dvd writer/drive i'll just get from pp.co.nz for a little bit cheaper
Consider a good 650W+ PSU,like Corsair HX650
Perfect! just spotted a good combo deal with this in it haha such great timing thanks
