I'd really appreciate it if you all could find someway to lower the price to ~$700 (no MIR, I don't trust them), while retaining the quality. If there is no possible way to improve for roughly the same price or lower, then I guess I'll just stick with this. Thanks for all the help in advance.
The video card Outlander_04 listed looks good, although you said that you don't like rebates, consider it $139.99.
And as he said, use the monitor speakers til you have the funds to get a decent 2.1 setup.
With the new revisions it comes out to about $732+tax(added $8 for additional fans)
Allright, I read over your suggestions, but decided that I'd be able to increase my budget to $800. I want to make the best all around gaming computer with that budget, and these are my new revisions. (Keep in mind I have no intentions of overclocking or crossfire/sli, hence my H61 MoBo. I also live near a Microcenter, about a 20-30 minute drive each way.)
So, what do you guys think? Stick with my new stuff, or do you have more suggestions? Also, should I do what @Outlander_04 suggests and just not get speakers and use monitor speakers for now, and save up for a decent 2.1 sound system? I'd like to keep 8GB RAM just because it's so cheap now. I'd also like to keep this wireless adapter because it has the two adjustable antennas, it is 300Mbps, and I don't have access to Ethernet.
For your price range, thats good for what you can get. But just a note that the motherboard + Cpu deal is only when you purchase a z68 or p67 board. I recommend the Asrock pro3m z68 for $110. Then change the psu to Antec Eco 620w for $60 on Newegg. You should be set then, but personally i like Cavier Blue over Seagate and think it is a little faster. But its your choice.
Last thing, just get 8gb, like serioulsy, its like $10 more for double the memory.
Just use the monitor speakers for now. I'd personally just use the thermal paste that comes with the stock heat sink, since you won't be overclocking. If you don't like the temps, then i suggest getting an aftermarket CPU cooler, such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212+.
I think I'm going to get this 2.1 speaker system, only $26 and it has pretty good reviews, this will do just fine for me. New total is ~$830. I dropped the thermal compound, didn't know the processor came with one. How does it look now? Not sure if "newcustomer10" $10 discount works on New egg anymore, if it does then the total cost will be about ~820. So what do you all think?
