Does this seem like a good deal to anyone else?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883102035

I understand its 65nm but still, now that Newegg dropped the price this seems like a really good deal..maybe its just me. (all prices from newegg)

QX6850- $979.99
Super Talent 4GB DDR3 1600- $700 ish
8800 Ultra- $425 give or take
2 raptors in raid 0 plus 1 750gb sata storage drive- $320 for raptors, 750 gig seagate $209.99
1100 watt ABS tagan patent pipe**** PSU modular- $359.99
Vista Ultimate- $180
18x dvd burner- $20
Asus P5E mobo- $250
Looks like gigabyte aurora case with water cooled cpu- $250??

I'm sure I'm forgetting some parts

Plus a free chair, and 1 year warranty

Total if bought alone will be more then the $2,999 newegg is asking with the price drop with a warranty if you built it yourself..seems like an OK deal

It's cheap for the overpriced hardware you get. But, you can get hardware that performs better for less money. No reason to blow nearly $1,000 on the CPU when you can get a really nice one for less than half of that. Also, I would settle for a DDR2 based rig (saves hundreds of $$$), and get a cheaper, but good PSU (around $200 gets what you need)

With all those savings, you'd probably be able to get a SLI or Crossfire rig for around $3,000

I guess the thing that puzzles me is that PSU..why is that so darn expensive?

Chozart you're back!

I agree with Chozart: ditch the cpu, the psu isn't too great and is overkill, and ddr3 is not worth the cost.

I'm getting a new system but not this one..I just wanted to post it for conversation sake.

But I have been told that if I wanted to do a QX9650 that it would benefit alot from having higher clocked ddr3 ram. However I have read alot of reviews saying otherwise.

The PSU is so expensive because it's a monster that can power a whole city block. They could easily get away with a good 500-600w psu for $100 and it would be all the psu you could ever need, but then your e-peen would be tiny.

Free chair, LOL. Such random gifts, like the kind you get from banks. But I do like the Intel C2D tote that I got with my E6850..

Anyhow, you're right, it does seem to be a reasonable price, but it takes the fun out of building your own!

The extra $1000 may just give the rig few percentages of performance boost. For less $2000, you get a

Q6600 $220
Evga 780i $250
2x WD 500GB AAKS $200
Good quality DDR2 ram $100
2x G92 8800GTS $460
A good PSU such as Silversone DA750 $170

Remaining $600+ should be able to cover a ncie case, 64bit OS and inputs devices.

Look at the review someone posted:


Pros: It runs counterstrike 1.6 at 900 fps
Cons: Kind of loud. It woke up my neighbor.
Other Thoughts: I can play half life on medium settings fine on this rig. I also bought one for my 4 year old daughter she uses it as a doll house.
