My First PC ever!!! (If the pre-built one my parents bought in 2007 isn't counted) - Page 4

I believe the AMD 390 is cheaper than the gtx 970 so I'd probably go with that. It's a hair faster too.

went to Fry's today to get the RAM and found 2 other sweet deals biggrin.gif
16GB (2x8GB) Corsair LPX DDR4 3000MHz $129
Western Digital Black 1TB for just $49
Samsung 850 EVO M.2 250GB $79
those number doesn't include tax though
but still $100 in saving to spend on PSU, and I think I'll change cooler to HX110i GTX, but let me check if it's compatible to LGA 1151 or not
I'm busy this weeken dealing with tests so no case mod now, maybe next week
oh and my chemicals have come today too, maybe I'll disappear into the dark room haha

actually I'm modding the Corsair Vengeance C70 now so PSU size is not a problem. But well I still deciding on that

True but the Evga is full modular which can be better for cable management and cable sleeving. Also comes with a 7 year warranty.

no matter how you build your system, you will still need the 24pin connector... that part not being modular changes nothing unless you are looking to get some kind of short cable kit...

warranty wise... i don't really worry about warranty since we are talking about quality units... warranty is something you worry about if you expect the unit to break... when you buy high quality to begin with, it's less of an issue.

hum... i guess i misread your post from before and was under the impression that the corsair LPX was $79... at $129, that's just normal everyday price...

as far as the 850 evo... it is still using the sata protocol even tho you connect it via the m.2. it's not a straight PCIe SSD that i was recommending... i thought i made that fairly clear earlier... so... it's not going to be faster then any plain jane sata ssd. that money you spent on it could have been spent on a larger SSD if you aren't going to get the speed benefit out of the m.2....

IMO, 1TB is way too small for a mechanical storage drive... should have saved up for at least a 4TB... i mean they make SSD up to 2TB already so what's the point of having a mechanical drive that is smaller then SSD? frown.gif yes it's cheap, but it's also quite pointless...

I guess i'll take my leave for now before any more damage is done... it's obvious we aren't communicating on the same wavelength here. the only thing you should have bought today was the 6700k from microcenter before it's out of stock...

Sorry for not mention that the ssd is for my cousin in Vietnam, not for me tongue.gif I'm waiting for the 950 Pro M.2. The actual reason I get the black 1tb is that I want to have a 500TB drive for games and softwares, and I store a lot of games, then the 1tb went on sale so that's why I got it tongue.gif I'll get the Green 4TB later and the 6700k will be home next week
