All that should work together right? I am getting just a cheap keyboard, mouse, and monitor for starters. Anything I am missing? I am also getting the anti-static wrist band so I don’t fry the parts, I feel pretty confident in being able to assemble it but just wanted to run it by someone else first as I am sure I might have overlooked something.
No i plan on getting a copy of Windows 7 for $100 and MacFree Anti-Virus @ $40 (I hear Windows 8 still has issues). I have a wireless mouse I am going to use and just getting the cheap keyboard for now haha (think the link is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) I was just trying to keep everything under $1000 w/o the monitor so I have kind of maxed it out with everything else. I was looking at something like this for the monitor: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Acer+-+V+Series+19%26%2334%...
I am kinda at my limit and figure I can get a nicer one in the future perhaps but this seemed like it would do alright for now
How much would a 1080p monitor that is decent cost? One reason I went with the combo was it was just a bit more expensive than buying the parts separate, and i figure that tower with its fans would mean i wouldn't have to pay for another fan, and it would have room to upgrade the video card in the future? I am pretty sold on the GTX 660 GPU for now?
btw Thanks for the advice
I wouldn't get an extended warranty. I almost only buy from newegg. though. Are you planning on sli ever? The bundle deals tend to use parts that are expensive compared to identical counterparts. Like that 660 is $230 when you could get a 660 for $200. Also, the 660 is not as powerful as the 7870, which the average price of the 660 is about $230.
I could build a more powerful pc for less money if you don't care about sli/cfx. If you do care, I could build you one for only a few dollars more if you want to sli/cfx in the future.
