It's Me Again..

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello. It's me again, lol.

I have been thinking all day today whether or not to use the $1800 I have atm for all computer parts minus keyboard, mouse, headset, and games, or just use the $1800 for those extras as well. I recently got a job at an immigration office and I am saving up for my own ride; a six-month plan if you will. tongue.gif

Note that I was using the $1800 on everything because it was the only cash I had and I had no cash flow prior to.

Anyway, my build so far looks like this:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=13328589
i5-2500k from Microcenter when they restock it.
Cat 5e Cable for $8 on Amazon

I have roughly $300 remaining. So, my question is, should I use just one of the many paychecks I will receive on the other parts like the games, keyboard, mouse, and headset or the $1800 I have with me for everything? I will greatly appreciate any and all advice! Thanks everyone!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the $ I will have to use after my first paycheck is $374.22 but subsequent paychecks will be $481.95 a week.

$1800 is a large money and thats my average cost for builds actually. But always remember this, you have a job and will earn more overtime, you got the $1800 cash already as an advantage so your all set.

Just make sure on the parts that you wanna get, guys here will help you with that and give you better options such as get this cpu instead and go all out to the card or this psu is fine it will save you this etc etc.

Another thing you would want to consider is checking ebay and craigslist for good deals. In my location, theres someone selling an i7 2700k with ax850 psu and a gtx 560 on a 650d case for $1000. swap the card if thats not enough for you and all you need is the ssd. Theres another deal that I saw about 2 hours away from me its an i5 2500k, 6950, 8gb, maximus z68 mobo on a white 500r carbide case for $800 and guess what, it comes with some MS intelli mouse, a razer headset and a logitech g19 which costs about $139 retail. And oh, it has dazmode cables on it as well, pretty good build with a pretty good price.

now go look for those deals, theres alot of custom builders, modders etc whos willing to ditch their current system for a cheap price and build the latest one or who knows, you might help them financially by buying it from them.

Thanks for the monitor feedback. I was going for the 21.5" ASUS Monitor then I got the job I applied for and found out my paycheck amount per week. After that, I got the idea of using the money I have now to skip on the games, keyboard, mouse, and other accessories, but I am not entirely sure I should, so that is why I am here. tongue.gif
So should I guys?

At microcenter it is $50 cheaper. Idk much about thermal compound so I could switch to the paste he is getting. I am leaning towards spending all of the money (the $1800) on just hardware and the games, etc with the paycheck. What do you think?
