    this build is slightly better because there is non-reference cooler on the 7850. if you take off the OS, put in place a crucial 64gb or a mushkin chronos deluxe
  2. Thanks Proximon i didn't see that combo, went and switched out to the 124GB.

    I wish I didnt' allready get the HAF 922 or I would switch... I got it in the mail yesterday and I must admit it's cheap and trashy... I knew deep down i should have stuck to my usual lian li selections for cases.

    I also found out that Frys Electronics (FRYS.COM) will price match Microcenter on all the sweet processor deals, so i'll be taking a drive to pick up my 189.99 3570K.

    That board you have up there is meant for dual cards yet that psu won't push two of those cards.
  4. True enough.

    Interesting about Frys. That must be only in competing markets?
  5. I don't think so, if you look on Frys.com it says they price match all online and in store prices. I called and asked specifically about the Microcenter deals and they said yes. I also live in Arizona and we don't have a Microcenter in the state.
