Im leaning towards the upgradable system because all that needs to be added to it is a GPU and it has potential to last much longer than the other one. I also do not mind using integrated graphics (HD4000) as my current GPU is the GTX210.... Its still a step up.

Why compromise when you do not need to?

Because i want a system that will last and has overclocking potential. Between the two, there is 400 difference if the upgradable one had a GPU. I want to get something that has a decent case and PSU and something that looks nice and easy to work with..

I dont think that 520W is enough to overclock with..

The system I made has all of those things. None of the fat.

You do NOT need 1000w power supply for example, even with 2 7950's the most you would need is 750w.

This is a gaming system, money is allocated for such.


The 7950 overclocks like a beast and has great cooling.


The ssd you can get down the line, when you have more money.


For a gaming machine THIS is the best way to use your money.

Antec HCG-620M is only $15 more than the 520w.

I am only getting that PSU because it is part of a deal.. In the deal it costs $220, which is cheaper than a decent 750W PSU. Have deceided to tone it down a little bit and get this deal http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... instead of this one http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... which is $50 saved.

That is a very nice build, but i just want to have a nice case :p  I am also only going to be playing League of Legends with this build for a couple of months, so the integrated graphics can handle it.
