Build/Picture log: First time builder!! (56k Beware!) - Page 2

post #11 of 18
thats an unbelievable first build, wish i could conjure up enough money to do that, would you mind telling me how much all your parts cost? id love to know!
do the fans make much noise? im running a thermaltake xaserIII case with 7stock fans, it sounds like a jet, btw, i wouldnt advise that case to anybody, so heavy, sucks when you have to tweak anything inside

Honestly, I was on a huge Sale run for about 2 months.

There was a local Compusa going out of business or shutting down. It bought my PSU there, Awesome deal I paid $127 After taxes.
And I bought my Big typhoon for $33. Along with my X-fi with at the time was a good deal at $130.
And my Stacker was $200.

They hade the Evga680iA1 But someone bought it before me. I had to wait 2 weeks before I had the cash

I make friends easy
Especially when you walk into a store to drop $$$.$$, anyway I got hooked up with a bunch of employee discounts

I bought my RaptorX from Bestbuy on sale for $180. Also from Bestbuy I got my G15 for $60 and mouse I forget how much the mouse was, it must have been cheaper...
And my Samsung 226Bw. Long story why I went with a retail store rather then Newegg. ( I love to return things )

The rest I basicly had to order off Newegg at full price. The Mobo, Cpu and Ram was in one order. And my second order a month later was the 8800 Gtx and case fans. ( I think I want to sell the GTX )

Well I think that just about sums it up Lol

Dude, don't sell the GTX to get a 2900, wait until the next generation of cards come out... Also I have those same rosewill fans - those things are great for a cheap pos fan.

What would give you that idea?

I'd sell it for a few reason... but that wouldn't be one of them
