* Mail-In Rebates:
It is a wonderful rig, no problems so far, meant for general purpose gaming, and school work
How has your build Held up? I'm looking to buy something like this from craiglist.
I sold it a couple months after I built it, but I know the person who bought it and he still uses it and it cranks on any game he throws at it. So it held up rather well
the 6950 is very good, but why not a 7850?
I am guessing it is because it was cheaper. Since he is a student the cheaper the better.
Yes, it was cheaper, got it on sale+ mail in rebates, and some games came with it
very nice for the price you paid, but is the SSD the only storage you have in it?
I had some spare drives lying around to use as dump drives.
I'm new to building computers. Anyone know if this is a decent build? http://pcpartpicker.com/b/xFt
It is a nice build, although that power supply isnt one of the better ones. When it comes to a power supply you want to get the most reliable brand, for me its Corsair (probly the best out there). You dont want to get a poor psu cause a failure starting at the power supply will affect the whole computer, I would look at the Corsair TX650 V2 if it were up to me. Although it isnt modular, the case you have can easely take care of the extra cables
Ok thanks. I changed it to what you said. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/xFt
please comment on my new build :)
I have to give you props on the mouse pad :P
Why the 700W PSU? Looks very nice otherwise.
It was cheap, and modular
Holy **** that is cheap, the problem is that it is OCZ.
You may want more storage.
