Total right now is $1084.95, including the OS. I want to try and get that under $1000 if possible. A few parts I'm a tad unsure about, is a 750W power supply a bit overkill for this build? Would I be better off with a 650W? Also, is there a better motherboard I could get or is the current one alright? And also, I'm a tad unsure of a case to get, I don't want to get one that's really cheap and hampers airflow, but at the same time I don't want to pay for an very expensive and giant case.
And probably the number one priority is to make sure everything is compatible, as this is my first time building a computer. Thanks for the help. :]
Also, I've heard some good reviews about the MSI Twin Frozr GTX 560 ti, it's a little bit more expensive then the current EVGA one I have listed right now, but is it worth it to go for the MSI one? Not too sure on the different brands, again this is my first time building a new computer.
I suppose I won't need SLI/CF support, I didn't realize it would cost $100+ more on the mobo and PSU for it to be compatible. Could you recommend an alternative motherboard and PSU if I don't go for SLI?
Oh and thanks for that combo, haven't seen that one.
im guessing you didnt used the 15% off promo code. could always cancel the order and do it again
Tried, said it didn't apply to the order. I'm guessing it was because I used the new customer code, or perhaps it just didn't apply to the gskill ripjaws for whatever reason. The new customer discount was still more off than the desktop memory one though. (by a quarter )
One piece I'm still concerned about is the GPU, I've read some negative reviews of the MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 560 Ti saying it starts to have problems about 3 months in, should I be worried? Should I switch to an EVGA Gtx 560 Ti or even go for a Sapphire Radeon 6950 1gb?
And also, am I correct in assuming that the PSU will be enough to adequately power my system?
