post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i wanted to skip sandy and wait for the next gen but a friend wanted to get a desktop so i pulled the trigger on a SB build.

spent a (all the door/to the door prices)
$80 on ram (8gig 2133 GSkill)
$30 on PSU (430cx builder)
$370 on CPU and MOBO (i5 2500k/asus Z68 Pro)
$40 H60 cooler (newegg sale)

$520 so far.. not bad

HD ~$50
SSD ~$120
Case ~$40-50
GPU ~maybe later

i jumped on the motherboard and CPU bundle today cuz it was ending. im not going to open the boxes yet just in case something happens.

Hell of a deal you got there.

Good luck, SB is a really fun platform to benchmark, to use, to overclock... just everything about it is just fun. Hope you enjoy!
