Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as I've got a decent build figured out, but no earlier than tomorrow
Budget Range: $750 STRICT budget AFTER taxes and shipping, and BEFORE any mail-in rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: I'll be doing some casual gaming, SC2, LoL, maybe CoD eventually.
Parts Not Required: I won't be buying a monitor, a keyboard or a mouse at this time, but I will be after I get some cash after this build.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg almost exclusively.
Country of Origin: Canada
Parts Preferences: I'd prefer an AMD build, as I've heard that they're much better for budget gaming, but if an Intel is better, I don't want an i3. i5 at the least for intel.
SLI or Crossfire: No
I'd like the motherboard to UEFI BIOS, and I'd like to have at least an HD 6850, or the GTX equivalent. I'd kind of prefer a low cas latency RAM set instead of a high frequency, and I'd like my memory to be 2x4GBs. I'd also like a DVD burner, no need for a blue ray player or burner. Also, the prices need to be from Newegg.ca, as I've found the shipping and prices in general can differ a lot. Here's what are in my online cart right now, take note of them or completely change everything, I just want to hear from you:
Hmm not too bad, if you dont mind using Tigerdirect.ca(great site, use it as my regular site) They have a SMOKING barebones kit for 300$ Can just throw in the xtra Gfx card and you have a pretty damn smoking system for probably LESS than the 750$
Noticed as well that Tiger has FREE shipping to all of Canada atm, Not sure what all it applies too, but I shouldnt been lookng thru their flier I guess cuz now Im tempted to grab up one of those 6870's or Nvidia 550 for dirt cheap..thought about grabbing a 5770 for 100$ used, but forgetting that Idea lol.
Anyways, Cheers ,hope that helps ya out somewhat even though you'd prefer newegg, Tiger is a great, great site as well, fast delivery alway for me and so far, after 4/5yrs, knock on wood, havent had anything DOA. Cheers.
