Afuture has 7950's for as low as €230. The asus TOP I was looking at is €270. For a GTX 760 with a good cooler you're paying €240. For €30 more I'd rather get a better performing 7950 (even if it's only a couple fps), reloaded bundle and more vram. Unless I'm completely wrong and the 760 is the better card, I don't see the point in getting a 760 over a 7950 at this price point.

I'm willing to listen to all suggestions, except for going ITX . How I see it, it's only going to hurt the resale value and that's a pretty import factor for me as you can imagine. I'm not only limiting myself for the year, but I'm also limiting the person who is buying it from me. With a standard ATX board I can go crossfire/SLI straight of the bat, have more performance than a single card will give me for less money and crossfire/SLI would probably increase the resale value in the end. Not only that, I would have the option of not only adding a sound card (As I mentioned in the first post, I'll also be getting new headphones to go with it), a capture card if I would desire it and maybe a wifi card. I'd be limited memory wise as well. I don't upgrade things like graphics card along the way, but you never now when you'll add other things. If the price was right, maybe, but a ATX would give me way more freedom for cheaper. I'd probably wouldn't even get a 50% return on a €200+ ITX board. Maybe if I sold it in parts, but probaly not as a whole.

EDIT: If you want to geta good return on one of the sites I mentioned, you have to spend money on things that the average person would look at. Processor, memory and even hard drive space. Then for the gamers, they'll probably ask to test the PC on a few games so a good graphics card is also needed. Motherboard, powersupply, heatsink, etc.. people don't really care about them so spending loads of money there is not a good things if you want to get a good return on them.

I'd probably get a better return if I went with an AMD octa core. Just imagine what the average person would think when they see an 8 core processor with a nice amount of memory and hard drive space for a nice price? The thing is though, I have to use it myself for a year and my preference goes out to intel, if that means I get less of a return, so be it.

Thanks for the tip on resale value wink.gif But I don't think I'll be doing the same as you selling each year. Mighty good strategy though but I'm just a student. Maybe later. You could sell your rigs on tweakers.net too, lots of interest there.

Wat do you think of this case? http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/315623/fractal-design-define-r4-arctic-white.html and the same one with window http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/326935/fractal-design-define-r4-arctic-white-window/specificaties/

I doubt the people on tweakers would pay as much, I could give it a shot though.

The R4 is on my list, I forgot to mention it though.

^ I'm probably going to get a white define unless corsair comes with a White 540.

Just wanted to let you know that afuture handled the RMA very well. They gave me a refund over a month after purchase. I call that nice.
