  1. this is the most confusing thing I've ever read. like this:
    Memory 1 x 4 GB [2 GB X2] is that 2 sticks of 2GB?
    or 1x4 means 1 gb stick.

    liquid cooling system, doesn't say what it is.

    Whats a PSI case? never heard of em.

    it's a rebranded aerocool http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php/products/31-pgsr/14-cyborgx

    btw: building yourself ensures higher quality parts for less.
  3. sorry for the confusion i fixed the memory issue it is 2 sticks of 2GB

    Thank you for giving the link to the actual case

    and as of the liquid cooling system I have no idea what the hell it is they didn't give me any information about it
    if anyone that has bought from the site could tell me about the liquid cooling system that would be nice.

    I also know it is cheaper to build myself I just had a really bad experance that i don't want to go through again.
  4. Looks like hes using some sort of build configure on a site. :??:

    The core components look fine but like Somebody_00 said you could save a bit of money building it yourself (if you have the time).
  5. + you can get more performance for the same $.. these companies gotta make there money somehow.
  6. i'm actually taking your guys advice and looking for parts online thank you once again for your input
  7. $1000.
    i5 760 + asus p7p55d-e pro
    g.skill ripjaw 4Gb (2x2GB) ddr3 1600 c9 or 8
    GTX 460 FTW
    Antec TP-750
    Cooler Master CM690II Advanced
    W7 home 64 bit
    Hyper 212+
    Cheapest DVD drive thats sata
    Seagate barracuda 7200.12 1tb or samsung spinpoint f3 1tb whichever is cheaper at the time.

    total= around $1003 if you buy close to now (check that I bet its within $50 I did that from memory haha.) (newegg; amazon's BF was a fail)

    total: 996

    Vindicaive showed some reasonably bad deals with the right combos(I didn't even try hard I just showed one great combo there are more which could save you another 30-50 orso) you can bring the price down whilst keeping quality the same.

    The build I listed has a better psu, mobo, gpu and case than the custom built you listed above. And yes there is a risk when building your own system but that is next to nothing you must have just gotten bad luck last time.
  9. ^ i disapprove of the galaxy card, but other than that all looks well. (I didn't check any combo's or even load a website haha)
  10. I bought the 470 version of that first one. its in transit as we speak lol
  11. I've picked out some parts that i like its going to be a little more expensive and also decided to go with Air cooling instead of the Liquid cooling system...

    power supply.

    Don't get the WD hd. waste of $. Sata 6gbs means nothing for mechanical drives so your paying for it to say that but do nothing.
    get the seagate barracua 7200.12 1tb $50 on newgg
  13. My other problem right now is cases I have one in mind from Newegg which is the Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition with Docking Station (NewEgg Exclusive) SECC / Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Link. IF you could maybe send some other ideas i don't want to go too overly expensive with them trying for below $100
  14. CM 690 II advanced, Coolermaster storm scout, haf 922, antec 300 illusion.
  15. I'd still get that supercombo I mentioned as everything it has suits your needs.
