Description

Been slowly upgrading a "Hp Pavilion Elite m9500" and more or less swapped out the last part a few months ago. All that's left is the wireless card and a 700gb hdd. My 2 Year old graphics card just burnt out while playing RAGE though so currently shopping for a new one. Besides that it's done great so far. The actual assembly was far easier than I thought it would be and now that this is done I'm kinda interested on starting other builds. I originally got the Desktop ~Summer of... 2009 and didn't change my first part until sometime in 2011.

Lastly CPU was bundled with Mobo... wasn't sure how to show that so I set the cpu as $0 and the Mobo as the total of the bundle

Looks fabulous. Doesn't changing out any hardware void the OEM license?

windows OEM license is only tied to the motherboard, and you can always ring up saying your motherboard died and your replacing it to re-active it.

How did you get such a good price on the K60?

Dug through my order history and it appears I bought it from memory express, I priced matched/beat it to sale at mikes computer shop (The link just redirects to the homepage now though) and also price matched the freeshipping on hookbag. The order was placed on 7/1/2012. I'm kinda surprised at how expensive it is now o-o

Did anyone else see the first picture that is no longer here? Had like a green mobo and the comments were disabled. Weird. Was that the crappy motherboard that came with the hp?

Yup the green motherboard was the original hp one. I realized I uploaded the wrong picture so I deleted it.

Pretty nice. I like how you were upgrading a build over time, pretty darn smart! How much money are you willing to spend on a graphics card and what are you trying to do with it? I'm just wondering so I can help you choose.

Looking to spend around the roughly $200. Going to be using it for gaming. Hoping to get decent(40-60) fps on high settings for games that are at least a few months old.

I was actually just looking at this card http://www.ncix.ca/products/?affiliateid=7474144&sku=73627&vpn=HD7870-DC2-2GD5-V2&manufacture=ASUS&promoid=1195 which is $170 including mir and a giftcard. What do you think?
