Check My $400 Build (help)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I put this together on newegg. I was wondering if you guys would change anything. This isn't for me, and I was making it as cheap as possible while being a functional workstation. I have a FireGL card for graphics, monitors, and Windows7 already.

So what do you think? $398.73 with shipping. Anything that you might change? I plan on ordering tonight.

Thanks, I already scrapped the PSU right before I came back to check this post. Added a rosewill 500w. Quality seems much better. Got the thumbs down for the Apex case - he wants something a little nicer. I am sticking to 8gb of ram, since there are no expandable slots. Taken that into account, with all of my combo discounts, no gas and time spent to go to microcenter, and only $11.00 in shipping - I think I am actually saving much more money and getting a slightly better processor.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll go ahead an purchase. New total is $412.00
