Make the thread then, though I doubt many things will change.

I've made a thread with certain builds, and half of the parts are outdated within even 2 months of leaving it without updating.

I'm just a month away... and the basis of the rig would be pretty much the same (I think), but since I have to plan my expenses (yes I know... it's complicated), I have to know at least a bit what I plan on buying.

I'd appreciate if you could do or tell me a similar rig to the one that's on my sig rig that costs close to $1200 (If it were that exact price great, if it's lower even better, If it costs a bit more it's ok)

My gosh... It seems just perfect!!

With a price like that I guess I'll be having a 4870

Since it'd be my first time setting up a rig... do you think I should tell the guys at TD to put the components together, or is it something I can do (I'd like to be able to learn how to do it by myself, but If there's too much risk by doing it myself.. idk)

Putting together a computer is easy as cake. The hardest thing is probably getting the motherboard standoffs position and secured, which isn't hard at all. It's mostly screwing or plugging components in. If your handy with a screwdriver and have common sense, you can do it.

If you tell the TD guys to put it together for you, where's the fun?

It's easy to do it yourself. Just make sure to ground yourself and be patient, no rushing.

Exactly my thoughts...

It's better to learn to do something than paying someone else to it.

Plus, knowing this sorta stuff comes in handy every now and then.

PS: What sort of tools should I buy to be able to set up the PC (besides the grounding wristband/whatever its name is)

you won't be afraid to open your rig if something goes wrong or you want to upgrade.

Godbless this site...

In a single thread I solved more doubts than I could have "tried" to solve on a whole day. (probably wouldn't have really solved anything)
