Tags: New Build Systems Last response: February 6, 2012 10:54 PM in Systems Share Monmaker February 5, 2012 4:56:26 PM I've already ordered the parts, but I want to make sure that they are all compatible and whether or not they make a decent gaming build.

YOUR price for that graphics 220$ /210$ Well thats WITHOUT tax AMAZON http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Mini-HDMI-Graphics-0... 189.99$ just saved you 30 bucks. AND free 2 day shipping. and NO QUESTIONS ASKED amazon 30 day return policy. Newegg is going down the tubes. You all remember the good newegg as i do, But they are taking advantage of that. They RAISE prices on holidays. And are skyrocketing year round. Amazon is better. Dunno why people dont see it. | Report abuse azeem40 February 6, 2012 10:54:01 PM One opinion doesn't prove a thing tbh. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Is this a good first time build?> Related ressources: ForumIs this a good build , first time building myself.
