This thread, however, is old and so I figured I should post a final check thread see if I could get any last minute suggestions or corrections to my build as this is the first time I will build a custom PC and I will probably be buying all the pieces online tomorrow evening (central time). So here it goes:
MEMORY:G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBECO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
These seem like a very good deal considering they're low voltage, however I was wondering if there is any reason I should go with the Ripjaw series 2 X 2GB?
Comes around to a grand total of $1535.54 with shipping, any feedback at all would be much appreciated.
One more thing, I'm going to be building this computer at an uncle's house in Texas and then travelling back home (I live in Mexico). I decided to do this since I was already travelling to Texas this December and the parts are cheaper and more recent in the US than here in Mexico.
Anyway, what would be your recommendations for the transportation of the computer, should I assemble it to make sure all parts are working OK, disassemble it, pack it up in its anti static bags and product boxes, and then reassemble it at home here in Mexico? OR should I just keep some parts assembled on the case and some parts on the boxes (I'm worried about static discharge and handling, what's your opinion???)
Everything looks good. When i take my computer between my house and apartment i just stick the whole case with everything in it inside the original box for the case. I havent had any trouble, but i know they sell this foam stuff you crack open and put in your case and it expands to hold everything together and make sure nothing vibrates. Worth looking in to if your worried.
Thanks for the input bavman, just to make it clear I'll be travelling by airline and the thing will be way too big for carry-on so it would be handled by the airline people, has anyone had any experience with transporting your computer case on an airplane? I guess one of those "fragile" labels would go on it but i have no idea how much they're respected by the baggage people.
I guess I might be charged for overweight luggage but that's OK I'll pay x.X
