I'd say just read the motherboard's manual, otherwise assembling is pretty easy since you just have to plug the cables in the right outlet. thumb.gif

Newegg made a video tutorial, see there's nothing hard really.

lol... No offence if there's any shop vendor reading this but some of them like to fool/blame the client so that you don't do anything by yourself.

There is no way you fried the HDD by simply putting it in the computer and plugging in the cables, unless you threw it out of the window. biggrin.gif

The drive was just DoA, it happens. I don't see how this shop vendor could say it was your fault by just seeing the drive.

So.. yeah, build it yourself man! It will be cheaper and better than anything prebuilt and you won't regret it. thumb.gif

And if you have any problem while building you can always ask on OCN. wink.gif

i was all set on building it myself, but after checking the prices on newegg.com which is one of the most popular sites here in the US, its actually more expensive... frown.gif

after adding in the main parts of the pc, which came up to about 90% of the cpu, its already $100 more than the one i configured... i still havent added the disck drive, case fans, wireless cards, etc..

maybe cyberpowerpc is as competitive, or even more for this period?

If you decided you want to build it yourself, you could put together something like this (minus monitor and keyboard/mouse and case - all personal choices) for $901 ($861 after rebates).

Intel 3570K and Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard combo $344 (before $20 MIR)
G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB DDR3-1600 $38
XFX Double-D HD7870 $229 (before $20 MIR)
Samsung 830 128GB SSD $90
WD Caviar Blue 1TB $70
Rosewill Capstone 550W-M Modular PSU $80
CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ EVO cooler $30
Asus DVD Burner $20

That includes a 7870 which will improve your gaming considerably. Get a decent case and a keyboard and mouse, and you are still under $1000. If you really need wireless and Bluetooth, there is a Newegg combo deal on the Asus P8Z77-V, which has built-in Bluetooth and Wireless for $386.

Hopefully someone from the US will quickly put together a Build it yourself PC for you on newegg. I cant as im from the UK and dont want to work out the GBP/Ratio / newegg for you haha.

But i honestly don't think it would be cheaper for a prebuilt

I agree on your parts except for the HDD, I would take the new gen. Blue which has single-platter and is $20 cheaper.thumb.gif

Well the thing is cyberpowepc is having a Halloween sale on their computers, that's why part for part, if I were to get it with newegg, itd be cheaper. Have a look at their website and let me know what u think.

In any case I will be going back to Singapore for vacation, and I will have to upgrade the parts on my own because they don't have made to order pcs like they do in USA .

Well I really don't think 5% is much of a deal. However, there's always Black Friday and Cyber Monday in November.
