Hello everyone, I have a few parts already for my PC and would like to complete my first build in the coming weeks. I am going to list out everything in the usual format and then post everything I have so far and my ideas for the remaining parts.
Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime before the end of November, first week of December at the latest.
Budget Range: $700 Before Rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Movies, Web Browsing, ect.
Parts not required: Case (see below) , PSU (see below), KB, Mouse, Monitor, Speakers, OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg is preferred, tigerdirect and other reputable dealers if theres a good enough savings.
Country of Origin: US
Parts Preferences: by brand or type: AMD GPU, at least a quad core CPU,
SLI or Crossfire: No, but option for Crossfire down the road when $$$ is avalible.
I purchased these at a steep discount earlier in the year during some special deals. I know the power supply is the best of the best in terms of reliability and stability, and should power dual 6870's or more without any problems. The case is exactly what I want as it is fully painted inside and out and is solidly built with good looks imo.
Ready to buy the motherboard this week, looking for any last second input.
I plan on waiting til the 6950/70 launch to buy my gpu in case the new cards blow me away or drastically change the prices of current cards, but my mb is set, and my cpu is pretty much set, just deciding on a 1055t or the 955.
