Also, sometimes parts cheaper like:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...161&CatId=6988

Might want to check that out.

I price checked a lot of the parts and most are around the same at Amazon (actually mos are more expensive here, except the GPU) and tigerdirect. I'd rather order all of them form the same site, too.

Again, Enjoy your new machine...post pics when you get her all built
Lol, yeah I went through a good bit of research on the mouse and I know that I made a slight compromise; it works flawlessly in wired mode however (would have like a braided cord, but I use wireless when I'm not gaming so I can live with it).

So, what do you guys think, pull the trigger?
post #95 of 111
thought you already did LOL. Anyways I think you should go for it. I am sure You will be pleased with the results! It'll be like X-mas when you finally get all of your parts on your doorstep. Also you will never want to go back to a inferior console again, with the superior graphics, frame-rates, and controls that your machine will deliver.

Crap. I just noticed that this card had an additional $20 off, bringing it to $300 even.

That's versus $370 for MSI TF III 570.
The cheap side of me is getting the upper hand...

Hmm...free 10 year warranty? Plus I believe EVGA has an upgrade plan too...might be a good idea. From what I gather EVGA makes great cards, don't know from experience as I'm an ATI/AMD Vcard guy, but the MSI is the superior card in terms of design.

Yeah, damn... It looks like OCing this one anywhere close to 900Mhz would be a bit of a stretch as compared to the TFIII.... I was putting in my credit card number... WHHHHYYY???

It's not as good as the MSI card!
Besides, do you really think you'll be using the same video card in 5 years, let alone 10 years???

Personally If I was you, I'd just go for the TFIII if your interested in overclocking. Its clearly the superior card in that sense. Also as far as the upgrade thing goes, you can always just buy another TFIII when the price goes WAY down, cuz we both know they will once the new cards come out. A 10 year warranty?? Who has the same card for 10 years??
