But honestly, the H440 is a beast case, and its not massive. You dont really need a massive case do you? Oh also, how much more is that 2666 ram? If its more then $5, then its not worth the upgrade over the 1866. You wont notice it at all.

Oh also change that G700's out for a G602 (better version of the G700) or wait for the new G502 if you want a wired. Also, I know the CM keyboard your talking about (the one with the obnoxious name), get the K95 for a few dollars more, you wont regret it. Build quality of the K95 is far past superior. Everything else looks good. thumb.gif

I wanted to get the Phanteks originally because I love the power supply in the back setup. Also, I just generally like the case...well thought out, good quality, good fans, etc. The reason I went with H440 is to save money, but since it's not available yet (at NCIX at least), I'm gonna go with the Enthoo Primo. As for massive, yes, I want/need. I love big cases...

The RAM? It's not much...like $120. I just wanna go all out if I can afford to, and I don't feel bad paying for top speed at this price.

I considered the G602, but thought maybe G700S was better (keep in mind, this is the new, S version, not the old G700). Why do you say the G602 is superior?

I'll consider K95...but it's a bit expensive. I WANTED to go with the K70 (brown switch), but it's on friggin back order.

2) Flat cables

As it pertains to the RAM. DDR4 is about 3 years out from being mainstream, maybe less. So spending a butt ton on really fast DDR3 is kinda pointless. I mean when it first came out, whatever your gunna have it for a while, but now its kinda like investing in a company thats folding in 3 years. I highly suggest this ram because I just found it and I want it lol http://www.ncix.com/detail/kingston-8gb-1866mhz-ddr3-cl10-7c-740617230666.htm
Apart from BF4 and certain rendering software, you will not see a difference in performance.

Ok so the G602. Its got a better sensor, more side buttons (just as easy to hit them), battery life is insane (ive owned the mouse since early january, changed the batteries a total of once, and I play A LOT). Also the overall quality of the G602 is nicer. Its just a plain better mouse. I've owned both (well the G700 version, but they didnt really change anything but the design for the G700s).

Ok will go with the 602.

As for RAM, I can't cheap out for $40 (considering this system is like $3300 w/taxes + shipping) and not get the fastest RAM NCIX has to offer.

About the KB, I think I'm gonna go with...

Said screw it, not waiting for browns, just gonna go red.

Actually, ram is the one area you can easily cheap out on. Its one of the few parts I say, yeah whatever is the cheapest. Honestly, I know your dead set on getting the fast overly expensive RAM, but unless your using certain rendering products, dont bother with the super fast RAM. Plus your still cheaping out as the Kingston Predator series is only a mid-grade module from them.

Also, what did you mean "from next week on"? You referring to these?
http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=100-CB-C123-B9

Finally, I checked the S&H, and they charge quite a bit ($40+), while Corsair ships for quite a bit less (IIRC it was only $14 or something when I tested).

The 750 watts is just as good as the 1000 watts, cant recall for sure but even think it was a tiny bit better. Those cables you found are for the NEX models ONLY! the G2/P2 cables will come next week

I thought about the EVGA vs Corsair, but to be honest, I'm gonna go with Corsair cause of the cheaper shipping + the fact that the Corsair 760W is considered a really good PSU as well.
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Corsair/AX760/11.html

Also, Jonnyguru gave the 760i a really good score as well.

I wasn't a believer until I saw some benchmarks from Xbitlabs...check this out:

EVGA SuperNova G2 has 3 year longer warranty better ripple suppression and a bigger fan and its cheaper, also if you dont know already EVGA does not make the units they sell nor does Corsair

How often do you compile WinRar files? Like I said, unless your compiling, rendering, stuff like that often, its pointless. Your $40 is better spent elsewhere. thumb.gif
