Hey all, Im planning on getting a new rig and this is what I've come up with. I would like to shave off around 50$ if possible and if anyone knows any good deals or recommends something different please tell me! Thanks for any help you can offer me. Yea I used new egg but if there's anything on Tiger Direct that would be good too.. I believe there's no shipping. I want the whole thing to be around 600$ not including shipping.
