is this a good bundle to get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
im wanting to build a new computer and ive been researching for about a month now. i ran across this bundle that this site has and it has most everything ive been reading that most people look for in builds.
but i also know that sites do bundles and they end up pretty crappy. just wanting to see what you guys think

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7999749&csid=_61

its got the 8350, 7979 gcard. and few other parts as well.

ill be mostly gaming and i just recently bought a 27" qnix pls 2560x1440. so the 7979 3g card should be good for it i hope.

i am just thinking of either going with the 7970 or the 770 4g card.

Well..That's the best bundle I've seen as far as quality stuff in it goes..
At least no Diablotek PSU er summin..
I am certain I could come up with something better @ a $900 price point,though . biggrin.gif

If you configure this PC yourself, as always, you'll pay less.

Even the best-looking supercombos/DIY kits can be hidden ripoffs

 

AMD FX-8320 + Gigabyte HD 7970 + AMD Radeon gold reward (free games) - $456 shipped, $426 after rebates

ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 + Corsair Carbide 300R - $215 shipped, $195 after rebates

Team Vulcan 2x4GB DDR3-1600 - $55 shipped

Rosewill HIVE 650W + Seagate 1TB HDD Retail - $135 shipped, $125 after rebates
LG 24X DVD burner - $15 shipped

Shipping approx. $12

 

Price of my combo: $888 shipped, $828 after rebates

Versus supercombo: $1100 + shipping, $995 after rebates


Savings: $212 before rebates, $167 after rebates

Pros of my combo: better GPU (tri-fan), same motherboard, higher quality case, higher quality power supply, dual channel memory, much lower price

hd 7970 from gigabyte has voltage locked, it's better to get a sapphire,msi or xfx card

I do like that bundle that's for sure. As for saving some money you can always find substitutes and get everything separate but if you have no problem spending a little extra I say go for it.

thanks for the extra input on items to look for. i will go ahead and do what most have said and buy separately and be able to get better deals in the end.
