Haha nice try.. Buying all those things from different places could be a hassle though. Newegg has an excellent return policy, super fast shipping, customer service reps that speak perfect english, and you will get everything at the same time. I would just go all out at the egg imo.

Edit: Unless you live near a microcenter of course, otherwise stick with newegg.

No offence, but that is a terrible way to do it. NCIX is great, and so is Amazon, there is no reason not to use them. Especially when he can save $50-$100.

Read all the suggestions, but seeing that your first preference was AMD I would have recommended getting the Phenom II X4 970 on newegg which is a little cheaper than the intel, but seeing that the others have change your mind to the i3-2100 I will support them as well because it is a good gaming chip. As for the PSU I would change that model because its not reliable. My suggestion is the Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200

Agree to disagree and the savings are nowhere near $100 for that specific build, don't exaggerate.

The 530 watt model is just as reliable. The 530 has 41A on the 12V which is double what he will actually use. the 630 will be a waste of money.

Sooo you don't want him to waste money by buying a power supply that supplies more power for upgrades and better for the long run, but you are all for wasting money by not shopping around... kookoo.gif

For budget builds like this one, it is best to shop around to get the best prices. even the OP knows that since he stated that he will be shopping around.

Also, it would be ~$56 difference with the i3-2100($15), GPU($10), HDD($11), and CX430($10) if they were bought from just newegg. So, like I said, $50-$100 difference.

Do you have a 530W? And how is spending $10 more waste of money for future proof. Despite you saying that the 530W is reliable, getting the 630W would be a better choice in the end.

Not if you buy that Rosewill 530. I used it in a recent build and it has two 6 pin connectors plus the part that makes one of them an 8 pin. The graphics card will most likely come with one anyway in case your power supply only has one.
