Dont know much about computers but I want the best I can get for $600~

Location: Oahu, Hawaii (so shipping from the same site would be nice or free shipping if it includes Hawaii)

Purchase Date: Now till Black friday (if it would be any better to wait and depending on how much cheaper it would be)

System Usage: Playing games specifically Smite

No need to buy a new OS

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: unsure

Upgrading because I am using a laptop to play this game.

Monitor: I was thinking about just using my tv but if that is bad for the eyes or something then im open to any cheap 1080p monitors

Need a keyboard but not a mouse.

Sorry if I missed any info needed to help

Thank you.

Best solution

Not sure if any of those sites ship to HI though.

And how did you manage a $93 560Ti? It might not run on the Antec VP though.

I've just never seen any 560Ti go that cheap! Not even used!

I would say replace the msi with an h77 based mother board from asrock
and replace the 560ti with hd7870,.

It will run on the VP, as shown in Tom's System Builder Marathon, and it's including a $20 rebate right now. Amazing deal huh? :lol:

Ah, you are correct. For some reason, I was thinking of another power supply.

That 560Ti is on backorder though.

Haha, it's no wonder :p 

OP could buy a normal GTX 560ti and screw the mail in rebate, it'd only be 20 dollars more, which really isn't that hard to come by. He'd still be around 600.
