So this build started when I saw an open box FX 6300 at microcenter for $63. Plus $40 off of a open box motherboard. The motherboard was $57 minus $40 plus a $5 rebate. (And a code for hitman and world of warships, but whatever). I know, I know the I3 6100 wins in all the benchmark. But for $75 total for cpu/mobo combo this can't be beat.
When I went to microcenter to pick up a case I had on order a fractal design 2300. However when I got there they were out of the fractal. I quickly looked for another case. They gave me the corsair for the same price of $39.99 plus another $10 rebate. However when I got home I realized that the hyper 212 evo does not fit in the spec-01 so well. You can manage if you put it in parallel to the gpu but it does touch the case slightly.
I got a groupon for a $100 gift card to newegg plus a year premier membership for $90. I used that gift card for the gtx 950 which was 120 after rebate at the time. I also got $5 cash back on the Groupon purchase. So the gpu came to $105.
When I purchased the xfx power supply it was 29.99 after rebate. The newegg website at the time said that the psu had a 5 year warranty. After I got the psu I saw that it was a 3 year warranty. Newegg investigated and did change the info on their product page. They offered to refund my purchase. I told them I would keep it if they took another $15 off. They agreed. So total for the psu was $15 after rebate.
So total for the system after about $100 in rebates is $340. Really not bad for about the same price as a PS4. I really happy with it so far.
