I decided to build a mini lan center in my garage. I spent a day looking for the most cost effective gaming SFF build. I think I have found it. I ordered 2 systems with the following specs and another two with a GTX 580, GTX 560. II X4 965 Cpu's. What do you think about the core 1000 case and this build under the $450 budget. What could I have stretched or gotten for better price/performance value? I think I maxed it out, tell me what you think?
Fractal Design Core 1000 $45 shipped
RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W $45 Shipped
PowerColor AX6870 $159
AMD Phenom II X2 560
4GBx1 G.Skill Memory - sure everyone has bought this! 4GB in each system $15
Super-Multi Drive $17
500GB refurb barracuda HDD's which I bought for $20 each. I have 24 of them!!!!
Total per system w/ shipping excluding tax = $439
