  1. Also, don't change my GPU & CPU.
  2. No need to change your GPU and CPU. that is a good combo. Everything so far looks good! For the case, get the HAF 912.

    $429 with all my hardware added up. Still need case & MOBO. That case: $60. What's left of my budget is $17. I don't think I could find a $17 mobo. I don't care much about case looks, I just want one that works fine, and has good air flow. :D
  4. Any case will set you back atleast $30, even a crappy oven style one. Get a decent motherboard, and use an old case until you can afford a proper one. If you dont have one, mount it to a bit of plywood.

    Just noticed this deal at the bottom of you'r CPU's page. Itl get you everything but the GPU and an Optical Drive, but you'l have enough left over to get those. Looks decent as well.

    Is there an amazing graphics card that is around $100? If you can find one, it can seal the deal with this. If you can, please find one that is about the same as the Radeon HD 6850. I really like that one. But, of course, I'm going to be upgrading my GPU in the future months. So, here are my reqs for my around $100 GPU:

    Skyrim on high graphics
    BF3 on good graphics
    Minecraft on, um, Minecraft graphics.

    Also, my res is 1920x1080.
    Thanks for all your help so far! :D

  10. Well Let me tell you this the GTX 460 is like a mini GTX 560:

    I was debating on buying these in SLi for my build. Might be able to help you out!
  11. OP, jump right on it! good deal!
  12. The 6650 is comparable to the 5650 and the GS 450.

    Okay so the GeForce GTX 460 is better than that other one? Okay. Does the MIR expiring on the 31st mean that I cannot send in the MIR tomorrow, or does that mean its the last day to?
  14. No it means you have until the 31st to buy it, and 30 days after to send in the mail.

    So I cannot buy it ON the 31st?
  16. You should be able to =o. I would just read the fine print. My understanding is "You have until May 31st to get some form of documentation that you bought this video card on or before the x date."

  18. Yup! Mind taking a look at my build? I need some reassurance that my $800 build is worth it.
  19. Your build is great man. :)
