Ripoff.  A better deal put together of individual parts can usually always be had for better price than user-unfriendly supercombos.  Don't go in that direction.

 

Intel Core i3 2120 - $113 shipped after promo code (you can't apply that promo code with a supercombo!)

ASRock H61M-VS - $50 shipped; the recommended MSI board is out of stock, plus this one really isn't any better or worse but for lower price.

2x4GB G.Skill generic memory - $38 shipped [Newegg] - no need to change here

Seagate Barracuda 2TB 5900RPM LP hard drive - $110 shipped [NCIX] - bigger, better

Liteon 24X DVD drive - $16 shipped [NCIX]

Thermaltake V3 black edition - $40 shipped [Newegg], $30 AR

Antec HCG 400W PSU - $25 shipped [NCIX] available, on backorder (might as well be even with the supercombo in that respect!)


Probable supercombo cost after shipping: $391 after shipping costs, $371 AR (rebates don't count anyway so....)

Cost of my combo: $392 shipped, $382 AR


More balanced PC with lager HDD and higher quality PSU for same price.

 

I'm not exactly sure what is your budget here, but I'm underwhelmed by a lot of these builds.  $500 easily fits a quad core and an HD 6850.  $600? fits a 6870.  $700 and you can seriously be considering adding an SSD already.

 

There are a lot of individual items that could be better for price.  I'm seeing a 250GB HDD recommendation for $75.  You can get a 2x as large HDD for the same price.

post #25 of 30
Where are the Sandy Bridge Celeron builds? Is BF3 too intensive, or does it make use of more than 2 threads? Seems like that would be a way to drop the cost/up the GPU power.

rolleyes.gif Really? Basically the same build as mine except he replaced my 40GB SSD with a crap 80GB sata1 HDD,a cheap Rosewill PSU vs an OCN rec. TT TR2 PSU,a pos case that has no cooling vs a quality Rosewill Ranger case.
And to top it off I highly suspect you are the same poster,or it's a friend of yours, as your avatar's and location are nearly identical. Sad way to REP yourself if this is the case. -_-

I think ive meet him on the linux forems... But so what? If its so similur to your you should have liked it. ssd was not in the budget. I just picked the cheapest drive at the time off of newegg. Even the 250gigd cost $80 now so for the budget i was going for it was te only chioce. Also ive used the stallon series and there great power supplys on a budget.
