Supercomboes like these are actually really, really bad in terms of the deal you get, parts choice, etc. You can get something significantly better for the same price, all you have to do is look yourself. Sorry to let you down, but that is what I have found with every single supecombo I've seen. See below for what I mean by "there are better deals for price".
My recommendation (pretty similar to that other one posted but with a few twists
). All items bought from Newegg except where specified:
- $105 shipped after promo [see link]
ASRock 870 Extreme3
- $90 shipped [Newegg should give you an AM3+ rev of this mobo, which means this summer you can slap an FX-Series in and fly!]
2x2GB G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3-1600
- $40 after promo
Rosewill Green 530W + Rosewill Challenger
- $90 shipped all (PSU would be good for single card)
Samsung F3 1TB
- $54 shipped [Superbiiz]
Galaxy GTX 560 Ti
- $226.28, $40 mail-in-rebate
/$186.28 AR (this super cheap deal on a 560 Ti is a good one, 560 Ti should easily take on 6950-6970 in performance with OC!). Mail in rebate has a no-wait-rebate option.
- $22 shipped
LG 24X DVD
- $20 shipped
OCZ Vertex 2 Sandforce 50GB Solid State Drive - $100 shipped [B&H Photo & Video]
Thermaltake Contac 30 - $30 shipped [Mwave]
Newegg new customer promo code
- $10 off!
955, AM3+ expandable, GTX 560 Ti, that mouse you wanted, overclockable w/a CPU cooler, SSD.... items in bold were never considered in other suggestions.
Total cost shipped
, counting that $40 rebate, using the no-wait-rebate option for an extra $1 (subtracted from rebate return total) you get it back in 9 days:
^^^ What? Under $730!?
Okay I've made a couple of good builds for price before but I think this is just pushing it Edited by xd_1771 - 6/11/11 at 8:37pm
