Hey guys, what do you think of this build?  

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/18nzE I had to override a few of the items so that they would either be Newegg or Amazon--didn't really want a 3rd retailer if it was only going to be $1-2 dollars cheaper.  

It's all free shipping and I'm getting a Western Digital 500 GB and a Sony (? actually forgot what kind I'll be getting) DVD RW drive in person at this one place I'm familiar with since originally the hard drive and dvd drive were both from a third retailer and had costs of shipping associated with them. I'm only paying $71 for the hard drive and the dvd drive put together.


It's a pretty cheap build but I think should be sufficient.  Metro last light is coming with my graphics card and I've already purchased BF3.  There is also $40 in rebates for the PSU and the video card from Newegg


Thoughts?

Nothing wrong with it until mekline hears about it and you have to hear the rant about how he can afford everything and has more money than you No(I really hope he does that to other people too.....)

That is pretty good bang for the buck but that's a tad bit over my budget

Aww why would he do such a thing Embarassed


And yeah I actually got rid of the unnecessary items like those $9000 monitors and $800 keyboard and $7500 SSD and things of that nature...almost cut $40,000 from that cost.

It's a bargain if you take into account the $20 mail in rebates though!

(I'll stop hijacking this thread and let people actually contribute now)

I'm not so sure about that company plus the product on newegg at least has pretty poor reviews.

I would just suggest staying away from prices that seem too good to be true. Either the PSUs worked well or started fires. The risks involved with buying a bad PSU range from just DOA or frying all your components and starting a fire. I don't think that type of risk would be justified because of a fairly good deal.

PSU seems pretty reputable...DOA on a few of the people who bought it.

Anyways already bought the PSU, video card, and RAM from newegg--going to buy the other parts next week due to some issue I have with a new card.

Well just hope the PSU is okay. You can go for cheap motherboards but should always avoid  really cheap PSUs

Is newegg a good site? I assume it is.
But I want to buy a monitor from them, but all the monitors under 200 have mixed reviews. Rolling Eyes
