Just ordered an Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What's funny is, this is my first PC part I've bought new. Everything else has come from trades on here or craigslist. Traded a Gateway T-1628 (graduation gift in 08) for: Antec 900, ASUS P5N-E SLI, 2x2GB RAM, Corsair TX850w, DVD drive, Seagate 500GB HDD, Creative SB sound card, and GTX 260 216 SC 55nm on craigslist. Then I traded an Xbox 360 250GB slim (bought RROD xbox(s), fixed, modded, then sold and bought it), 30GB 5.5g iPod video (traded in 06 a $45 GC to Toys R Us for it), Razer pro 1.6 mouse (was free), and Icemat ear buds (came in a two for one deal) for a Q9550, EVGA 780i SLI mobo, 2x2GB DDR2 RAM, GTS 450 1GB, and Zalman CNPS9700. I sold everything I couldn't use in my rig to pay for car/school stuff. As of recent, I sold the TX850w for $100 and bought an HD 5870 for $50 here. So I have either spent $0 on my entire rig or actually gained profit. Most definitely profit once I sell my GTS 450. I also go a new Xbox 360 for x-mas on black friday, so hardware wise I have that again rolleyes.gif

Actually.. I'm not quite sure if I've actually bought this out of pocket yet... The 360 I got from black friday (waited in line for a TV, because a few of us threw in for it for some one and since I have no $, I just wait in line for hours, lol) had a $50 Walmart gift card. So I bought 2 $25 physical gift cards on their website; no tax and free shipping. I then traded one for $25 and have $20 in my paypal from selling the PSU. Since I don't have a debit card or anything, I asked my father to put it on his. Then I used the $10 promo code (newcustomer10) to get it down to $45, and lastly used my new 1 year trial of Shoprunner for free 2 day shipping. Then my father tells me he'll just get it for me for x-mas, but I said I'd rather get it and paypal him the $20 I have, but he doesn't use Paypal... Regardless I'm still not really spending out of pocket either way, but one way I still have value left from selling/trading. Wish I kept track of everything, would have been neat to know where I stood.

While I'm story telling about me being a cheap-ass/good consumer... Got a XAI when they were $100 and new for free via ESportsEA owner. Then I actually bought my HD 201s for $20 on Amazon, $10 for the HD 280s from a spoiled friend, SR60is for $22 from a guy who runs a website and reviews stuff, and the A700s from the HD 280 friend when I sold him my spare PC parts. So I paid like $52 for ~$280 worth of headphones.

Anyway..... I was going to ask if anyone has it and what to expect, but I really got off topic. offtopic.gif

Doubt many will read this anyway, but I figured this will be in my archives to look back on rolleyes.gif
