I'm really lazy but after calculating the discounts I mentioned, I should save around $50 w/o rebates and $100 with rebates.
Additional Comments :
I would like to run these games well: League of legends, diablo 3, skyrim, maybe planetside 2.
I prefer not to deal with rebates that uses prepaid cards.
I currently only use around 60gb on my laptop, so that's why I chose an SSD (in case this gets brought up).
I can get an i3-3225 and a biostar h77 combo to shave about an extra $20 off of my current build planned. But apparently, biostar motherboards are bad or something?
It looks like the only other deals I can look for is ncix and amazon lightning deals so I'll keep those in mind in the next couple of days. Hopefully I can tell for myself what to get after seeing a couple more opinions.
Thanks in advance!(did a little editing my price and rebates)
SSD: read some reviews. i think there were some issues (DOA) with OCZ a while ago, and i'm not sure if they were fixed or not. if the vertex 4 has good reviews, get it, otherwise go for a samsung, intel, corsair or crucial, as i *think* they are the better quality brands.
this is a more personal thing, but i would get a cheaper case, and spend the spare money on a better Video Card.
otherwise the build seems pretty good.
i can't really say what frame rate you'll get for those games, but i *recon* it should be fine on high settings.
i'm no expert, just thought i would give my opinions.
I'm thinking about getting a new computer soon too around this price, 128GB just isn't enough for me though. what would you recommend I use instead? I wanna try to stay under 550, maybe a tiny bit higher if I've got to...figured I'd ask here instead of making an entirely new thread
edit: that was to djangoringo's build btw didn't let me quote
