Total = $1028 not too bad still looking for a great monitor tho and I will also add a 1-2tb hard drive so I am open to any suggestions on that.
So this is what I have so far what do you think and does everything look compatible? I'm concerned about the video card the price and free 6 games/hdmi cable that come with it sound too good to be true I was previously thinking of going with a 670. Also not so sure about the MOBO but for the price it seems great and I assume the PSU can handle what I'm running.
Thanks for all the input so far. I'm definitely going to swap the power supply for a better one in terms of quality and I also like that intel SSD. One of the main things I want is to play blu-ray movies and being able to burn them also is a nice plus if I decide to do that so I went with the writer and it comes with software to play blu-ray. Also any suggestions on monitors? for 1080p blu-ray movies and playing games.
Thanks calguy but thats not really what I'm looking for. No blu-ray play, no SSD, nice video card but a bit expensive and I would have to down grade elsewhere too much. I was also wondering about my original 7970 how is tigerdirects/visionteks customer and rma service since I have never ordered anything from there or that brand.
