UPDATED: Newegg Combo deal build for impatient neighbor...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I always told my neighbor that when ever he was ready to upgrade that I would help him build a new pc. Well today he sent me a link to a combo build that didnt seem too bad. Personally there are a few things I would change for that price, but hes got some $$ and is willing to spend it. For some reason though he always insists on a combo deal. So what do you think?

UPDATE: So he wasn't so antsy in jumping the gun on the above deal. So over the weekend this is what I came up for him using combo deals. I figured we would just pick a hard drive locally since they are always on sale. This only comes out to about $25 more than the deal posted above after rebates, and has free shipping. I think this is the build we may go with and seems pretty killer to me. It should give him a pretty good future proofing for the crap he does. So just thought I would share for others that may be looking to build.




Thanks

You are not really saving much since you are buying at retail prices or everyday prices from new egg, also most people will tell you to avoid seagate HDDs. Also does he need 650w PSU or can go by with a lower cheaper, but good quality PSU.

Besides that is not too bad.

edit: I skipped this, "He is not much of a gamer at all. So no dedicated GPU is required right now."
Then you don't even need 650w since it's overkill for not even using a GPU.

Looks good, though way more power then he will ever need if he just browses pron all day lol. I would downsize to matx/i3 unless he plans on buying a gaming video card and gaming some time soon.

p67 does not have any onboard video. You need a dedicated GPU on these platforms.

I don't know how Newegg can call that an "OC" supercombo. The motherboard only allows very little room for overclocking. You can't control the voltage on your own!

The mobo is a weak overclocker,the hard drive wouldn't be my choice for 60 bucks and the ram is priced too high.Those combos are always stuff that doesn't sell as well.
