Picked these parts myself. As I'm not too tech savy, I'd like your opinions on this build and if everything is compatible. If you have better parts in mind, feel free to let me know. I also need you guys to pick me a DVD and CPU fan, as I don't know which ones are good. Please choose from NCIX.com as that's where I'll be purchasing everything from. Thanks.
I bought essentially the same parts about two weeks ago and managed to save about $85 by price matching. Built it this Saturday and it's working like a charm with no problems.
My parts are as follows:
MSI P67A-GD65 (B3)
EVGA GeForce GTX 570
G.Skill Ripjaws X F3 8GB 12800
WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200rpm
ASUS optical drive
Thanks for the price match tip, I never knew about it. There may be a problem though: I'm buying these parts through the PC builder section because I plan on getting them to build the computer for me as well. See here: http://pc.ncix.com/pcbuilder/index.php?action=getprice&... Then click "Add to shopping cart" and then click the "Price Match". Nothing happens for me. Am I still able to do price match?
Not sure. You can try sending in a ticket to see if you can get it priced match. As far as i'm aware, NCIX owns the Direct canada website, so they usually always price match those items. It's your call.
