uh, overclocking is overrated... and that New egg build is lacking some things... For instance you select only one seagate cuda, when obviously a raid 0 stripe of 2 drives would be superior and not much more expensive. I would go with crucial blastix for the memory... On a different point. I've always found that overclocking provided me with little performance increase compared to the time and effort to get a truly stable OC of your gear.

What I have spent doing is building superior rigs that do not have to be overclocked to perform top notch.

you guys obviously like to purchase mainstream products and you want them new... Also two things I would do differently. The bottom rig in my sig is a dual opteron platform that murders games and makes multitasking a breeze. I built that rig the way its listed for 750-800 US dollars. the 4 drive raid is indespensable for making the computer perform flawlessly without delays. the ECC Micron ram makes it incredibely reliable and error free. this machine never BSOD's or locks up. It just doesnt happen.

There is more to building a computer than settling for what everyone else is buying. I did that with an E6850 rig and I ended up selling it 4 months later. I just wasnt impressed by it, the overclocking was pointless and a waste of my time. It did not perform anywhere near the capacity of the this dual opteron rig.

I'd suggest putting more though into what actually makes a computer run fast and reliable.

He wanted an inexpensive rig to play wow and for general computing. The newegg rig will wipe the floor with the one you have. Will be built in an easy straight forward manner. Raid, Sure that's better but is it necessary, not really and I went under the target as I didn't know what OS or Case he had so I left room for that. Cruical memory while good is expensive for the same performance. I was looking for bang for the buck performance.

Don't criticize build the better rig.

overclocking overrated? lol. running a gfx card @ stock speeds? wow.

I disagree with your claim that overclocking is overrated. Getting an E2180 and overclocking it to 3.0Ghz or higher will not provide a "little" performance gain. Getting an E4400 and overclocking it to 3.0+ will also result in a great performance gain.

Also, it is not difficult in most cases to achieve a decent overclock. You just have to get the right chip and right motherboard.

Finally, some people just do not have the money to build a "superior rig that does not have to be overclocked to perform top notch." This is one reason why overclocking is so useful.

The site is NCIX and it's canadian (i live pretty close to one actually). There are 3 mail in rebates but doesn't say on the picture. MIRs are for the video card, psu, and the ram. Total is 739.89 BEFORE taxes (the total got cut off at the bottom lol). After MIRs ($70!) it's $679.89~. I only chose that case because it's cheap and pretty good (what i have); you could choose a better case if you want . You can also add about 3 fans to the case (included is two). You can always price match all those prices (canadian prices only) to get lower prices . If you're gonna oc, you can buy the Kingwin 120mm (can't remember name lol) heatsink which i've heard is pretty good for the price ($25~). NCIX can also build your computer for you for 50 bucks (which i don't think it's worth it if you can build your own computer (it's fun ).
