Would have made things much easier if you had said no OS needed.
The system you put up is just fine. Dont forget the DVD drive. Consider buying some used parts like I said before.

For the use of the $60, you should consider getting a new HDD and using your other one for storage.

The only thing wrong about Famous 1994's list was the PSU. The PSU is absolutely atrocious. I doubt it would give you 575watt output. Stick to something high quality. Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, etc.

Where do I have proof that Its atrocious? I have one. I bought the same one three times and it all blew up on me Edit** Scratch that, make it twice.

Well this is a pretty decent setup i guess

CPU= AMD Phenom 955 Black Editon, 109.99 @ NCIX
MOBO= ASUS M4A79XTD AM3 ATX 99.08 @ NCIX
RAM=G-Skill 1600 4GB 2x2 37.99 @ NCIX Sale page
PSU= Antec Basiq VP450 24.99 After $10 MIR @NCIX
GPU= MSI 560 TI OC 880Mhz 214.99 After $35 Mir @ NCIX

The powersupply may seem cheap but it is 80 plus and does the job. However, it only has 1 pci e connector, but with a molex to pci e you can power the 560. the 560 can be driven even on high quality 380w psus.

Overall cost before Rebates; 497.04 , After rebates 452.04 before taxes

MOA,

Why not just buy used parts? RAM, Mobo, GPU, Case. These all you can buy used easily and have no performance hits etc. That way it takes less time for you to gather up money for the stuff.

Well, unless its like DOA or 4 years old.

Newegg in Canada is totally bad idea. Counting shipping, a particular build above costs way over $500. Plus it's not very optimal with the single channel single DIMM memory which will bottleneck high end gaming. Not to mention, the power supply choice.... blow up upon first 100% load? I think so, yes I think so.

The i3 550 and LGA1156 is a dead platform and the performance is usually lower than a Phenom II x4.

My suggestion from NCIX (who happen to be in the middle of a big sale right now due to a store opening in Ontario):
Phenom II x4 955 + GA-990XA-UD3 - $240 both - fully SLI capable
Corsair XMS3 2x2GB DDR3-1600 - $25
eVGA GTX 460 1GB (no difference between a 460 and a non-TI 560) - $160, $140 AR after price match - no wait rebate enabled
OCZ Modular 700W PSU - $80, $60 AR - no wait rebate enabled (free shipping for entire order!)
Hyper 212 - $20.63 price matched
Shipping for entire order: free

Total cost before rebates: $525.63
Total cost after 9 days (no wait rebate): $489.63

Note that I have not assumed tax. You may need to save more money, but you may need to sacrifice SLI capability among other things

Corsair XMS3 2x2GB DDR3-1600 - $25

It says those rams aren't available If they were I would of grabbed them!
post #19 of 28
hey there poptarts!
I already have one of those kits webordered for my HTPC setup which is getting a DDR3 mobo soon
I think they are still available, NCIX is currently listing them as backorder but that means they are ordering more and awaiting arrival.

The next cheapest 2x2GB DDR3 1600 kit is this Kingston kit at $34.49 after price match

Thanks a lot guys, rep+, and yes newegg.ca isn't as good as the US version of it. As for used parts, I'll be making a 1000$ rig for myself, and ill use the marketplace for sure, but this is for a friend and he wants all new stuff.
