How Does This i7 Build Look? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Fixed. Although the MSI is the cheapest x58 mobo, the reviews said it can overclock a little bit, and I'm not trying to go really crazy with it, so it should do well.

Waiting 6 months for a $50 price drop, is no where near worth it for me. I think this will be the set up I'll order. It's pretty much in my price range, and should do everything I want to do. Anymore suggestions would be greatly appreciated though.

And would only be able to add another harddrive if he wanted to upgrade. Always leave room for upgrades, always. That's why I have a CF motherboard and a 750 watt power supply. It's overkill for my single 4850, but sometime in EARLY spring, I'm thinking of getting a 2nd 4850.

You'll have to ask someone who has actually tried it out themselves. Either way, I would recommend a 3GB kit. I don't really see the need for 6GB.
How does the cashback work BTW?

It's not just the price drop for the CPU. Also the motherboard, RAM, everything. Prices for pretty much every component will come down. If you can wait, then wait. If you can't, by all means splurge.
