  1. Almost all the parts are good, but you are overpaying by a good amount.
    A 6870 is only $159.99 after rebates brand new. I would also
    wait for a better sale on the i3, which should be soon.

    My build is very similar to yours. Also, what about OS?

    You know that your are on the bottom end of the power scale. If you wait and shop you should be able to get a 550w for not much more

    Asrock MoBo $55
    Are you buying this beause its cheap? Try to find a way to go with the low end Asrock z68 for $85. That will give you and upgrade path since this mobo is not going to give you that

    i3 2120 AND Dvd Burner $135

    cost before shipping - $560

    what do ya'll think?!

    Was there a specific budget and what are you planning to do with the box?
  3. no need for an os, i'll install my own.
    and overpaying? nobody else mentioned that when i posted almost all these same parts before...
    the newegg prices changed in the last few days, so i tweaked a few items- i just want to make sure anything i tweaked will still work happily together.
  4. my budget is under $600, i don't need a monitor or OS. this will be for maxing World of Warcraft settings at 1900 by 1080.

    thanks for yer interest and help quietpc!

    that refurb vid card is the highest end vidcard i can afford, i think.

    i know it's the lowest PSU that will power this rig, but i don't intend to upgrade, and i'm told thats a reputable /dependable brand.

    the mobo is the same story, i just don't plan to upgrade, at least i think.
  6. Maxing WoW shouldn't be too tasking. I don't think overpaying was necessarily the right word. You are pretty much paying the standard price for all the parts, but you can get the parts cheaper than that. If you buy one part at a time (the case), Newegg usually sends a coupon that gives 10%+ off another part.

    I got the same PSU for $40 (maybe $45, can't remember) with a free $15 Gift Card.
    Newegg often has good PSUs go on ShellShocker as well.
  7. oh right, well i definitely feel you on that; that most of these items could be found at a better price if one was willing to wait and shop vigilantly. but i'm just trying put together my first pc, with the best parts i can manage RIGHT NOW and at this price point. and yeah, i know wow is on the low end of videogaming anyway, as far as graphics are concerned, so i feel that helps my budget situation.

    Then if the bug has bitten you and the money is buring a hole in your pocket go for it.
  9. the purchase has been MADE! i'll be back on the forumz in a week or so to ask questions if needed, guys. thanks so much for all the help so far!
