Yep, good parts, the mouse is a matter of preference, and definitely build it yourself! Its not that hard and nothing beats that feeling of accomplishment.

I just watched this video a couple of times and I was good to go!

The thing is most parts when bought usually have at least a 1 year warranty, more commonly a variety of 3 to 5 year warranties though. So if you are ordering though them and ONLY receiving a 1 year warranty you should look at online retailers.

It really depends as if it's a business (I'm assuming from warranty) in the cases I've seen them do absolutely terrible jobs and spend maybe a few minutes throwing it together and then not giving any extra parts with the boxes or such. Whereas if it's a friend or such they, being friends, put in a good bit of effort and such into the job.

The mouse TOTALLY matters if you game. I love my Logitech G400.

You did fine with your pricing. If you had searched on the FS/FT sections of Hardforum, OC.net, Anandtech, etc., you could've paid a little less, but not a ton. The performance you are going to get for the money is unbelievable.

I can't believe someone is going to put the PC together for $40. I hope you are not getting what you pay for! I just put my 2600k rig together, and it took hours, but I am meticulous and anal. I swapped all the fans out of my case (no LEDs for me!), put a monster heatsink on the mobo, took a lot of time to route cables properly, etc. If the person building it for you does a good job, you need to buy him/her a nice dinner or six pack (plus the $40)!

And for the guy who says it is easy, there is some truth to that, but there are lots of things that can go wrong. If you have never put a PC together (or if it has been awhile), I would not start on this one. Only if you were doing it with someone who is experienced. Good luck!

Sir, I have a 5850 Twin Frozr II so I wouldn't flame on other people if I were you. Having over 2000 buttons is great, but do you utilize all of them? Just get a decent looking mouse that is in your budget and play with it. Buying separate parts and putting them together saves you $40 and you get longer warranty periods. Some components come with lifetime warranties.

No, I still have the 3 to 5 year warranty. The thing this shop does is give me the warranty so if anything goes bad with the parts they replace. This way I don't have to ship the part to the company. Secondly these people are professionals, When I was buy this bundle I7+motherboard the guy at the check out asked me if I wanted them to put it together, because he was worried I would bend the pins or mess things up. These guys also take 3 days to build the machine. The run several "stress" test to make sure the system is good. If the machine fails the test they replace the part with a new one fore free. And regarding the extra parts I will be searching "you tube" or website for "un boxing" (X)part video" So I know what comes with it. when I will be receiving my comp I will ask for everything smile.gif.

These guys are a well know company that's been around for 25 years.

bro these guys a professional they will spend 3 days building my machine. they will also be running "stress" test to make sure all the parts are alright. If a part shows up as bad they will repace it with another new one.

As for the 40 dollars built, They usually build computers for 50 dollars an hour. But since I purchased all the parts from them they have this 40 dollars deal smile.gif

You should post some pictures when you get it , i would love to see the "professionals" build quality. As for broken parts, the parts them selves come with a warranty and would be replaced anyway free of charge.

50 dollars an hour? They shouldn't charge per hour, but per percentage of the money you spent on the components. You can run stress tests at home, too. OCN can help you with that

He's got a point here. 40 bucks for a full rig 1yr warranty is a good deal.
