At the time of building it ( two days ago.) The total for the parts was just at 1600 dollars...and, unless my internet is lying to me or I'm going blind, the prices have faceplanted down to 1100 dollars. Which leaves me with a 500 dollar window for...stuff. What stuff ? I don't know, I was hoping you would help me think of investments I could make.
I highly doubt I will ever run dual monitor, I'm currently on a 60 hz 24" hp monitor. I'm not sure if it's all that great, but I enjoy it well enough. I don't feel like there's anything else I really -need- in the build. I plan on using that intel smart response technology to make the SSD a cache drive, seems interesting and if I don't like it, it's fairly easy to revert and have two separate drives.
So uhm...if your build randomly dropped 500 dollars in cost, what would you do ?
