  1. For 1$ less you can get a 1TB drive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 20f3%201tb

    Significantly nicer ram can be had for 80$. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] pk=mushkin

    PSU/case aren't my favorite, but they'll do for the budget.
  2. You know that the $200 deal on the video card ends tonight, right?


    Here is a discount on the case/cpu:

    Combo Rosewill Challenger case and i5-760 CPU for $237

    Here is one way to get a better case, although the Rosewill challenger got 5 eggs on Newegg, so who's to say?

    Combo Motherboard, CPU and COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case for $379


    Take your pick.
