Description

Just bought these parts today, because they became crazy cheap this weekend. I will add pictures in about a week, because NCIX Ground takes about 2-8 days (From experience on shopping online, it's probably 6-8). Will do a slight overclock to 4.2 soon after I get this thing up and running (:

CPU: $220 + $20 promo card CPU Cooler: $70 (Glad it was on sale!) Mobo: $144.99 ( I used Newegg for that 1 year extra warranty, and Shoprunner for free shipping. Wish we had a Microcenter tho... :/ Memory: $40 HDD: $67.99 (PCP somehow found a link that says it was $75) Video Card: $379.99 + $20 MIR (2 games too! I was so happy when I found that out!) Case: 159.99 + 30 MIR PSU: 169.99 + $20 MIR Optical Drive: $15.99

Total (before MIR + promo): $1288.90. Newegg was also kind enough to give me a $20 off code for subscribing to their e-blast emails, so then it goes down to $1268.90

After rebate price is $1178.90

How's the video card? I plan getting that one soon... Also how's the case?

I will be getting the parts in about a week, but for what I can tell you, it is one of the better 670s. Lots of people have recommend it, and I would say it's in the top four with MSI PE, Gigabyte, and ASUS DC2 (I would add the TOP version, but that seems very unstable at stock speeds). The 7970 is great too, but is a little over my budget of $1300, and the Adaptive V-sync, 2 great games (I have no want for AMD's 4 games, although Sleeping Dogs sounds nice). The case is roomy, and for what I know, has great cable management. Get another 200mm fan on top and you're ready to go. I was going to get a NZXT Phantom, but with the Rebate right now, it's just too hard to miss it.

Thanks! The only cons about this is waiting for the parts to get here, have none of them DOA, and not breaking any parts >.<

That'll be a pretty sweet build. Make sure to take lots of pictures!

Oh, I just noticed that! Too bad I didn't pay attention, now it's sold out! haha. It's fine, because I know I can trust on EVGA's customer service (:

Yes, pictures would be a plus once you get it up and running. Would also like to see the prices you paid compared to the prices listed. xD Also make sure to manage those wires as well. Great Build!

Edited! I will try my best to. r/CableManagement should help me a bit. The monitor is a big and bulky one, just to let you know xD

Micro Center is amazing in store at least. The closest one to me is a hour away, which is okay but I only go there when I have money. lolz on the monitor comment, I wish let you know my opinion when pictures are posted. I am using a crappy 32" Emerson LCD TV, I shall someday update to an Asus 23" IPS monitor ... someday.

I've never heard anyone say that before. I guess sized doesn't always matter c; Oh yeah, definitely. I will probably get the one that was highest rated here in PCP. Seems amazing for it's price

Why would you get the Segate Barracuda 1TB @ $74.99 when you could get the 2TB for $69.99?

So much facepalming was done right then. The 1TB was only $2 cheaper ._. oh well! I have seen reports of lots of chirping coming from the 2 and 3tb versions. I'm still satisfied with my build greatly :D

Why is everybody going with 1155 socket right now when in around six months , that socket will be dead because Haswell will be the new one with the 1150 socket, just wait that long and then buy your computer. It will last much longer because it will allow the newer CPU's.

If you don't want to wait another 6 months to buy a computer, there isn't anything better atm. If you are always waiting for the next best thing you'll never end up buying a computer.

Thats so true. There is always something "new" just around the corner. Being GPU's, CPU's or socket designs. Build what you want now that will make you happy then upgrade things later on, even if it does mean a new Motebord and CPU

Personally I just built my machines 2 months ago. I waited 5 years to build them and I was done waiting. A lot of the new builders are in that same boat.

I started my build ideas last fall, number of things happened so I could not get around to building it but I'm going to in the next few months now. Something newer and better will always be on the horizon. If better processors come out in a year then I'll upgrade when I feel like it. You will drive yourself crazy keeping up with the best/newest stuff that is out. What you built is a nice system and will be for a long time.

Aka future proof.

I was tempted to get a 7xx design, but since I'm impatient (Only 13. Yeah. I know), and my Dad wanted me to buy everything on Thanksgiving weekend, so I skimped on that.

Building my own as I type this. I've been waiting to own a high-end PC for years -- the only thing stopping me being either lack of knowledge or money.

I have both now. I'm done waiting.

I did all my research this summer and I'm sort of waiting because of money. I have the money I need, but I'm only 15 so it would be a big portion of my total money and I'm having a hard time convincing myself to buy it.

You should throw in an SSD. Would have been better for the OS to be installed on there but not everything can be perfect.

Oh yeah, an 830 will be added after I get a good 20"+ monitor. And using Linus' help, I can install the OS on the 830 (:
