I have to really get it down, and understand it to fully comprehend what people are suggesting. This is why I'm so thankful to be a part of this community. People have great experience with products they can recommend for newcommers to do full research on (if they choose to). If I asked a question twice, or didn't respond back. It means I missed the post, or forgot. I want to respond to everybody that took time to help me out. Once again, thanks to all you guys for helping me out. Let's get back to helping me find a gaming paradise

I do want to spend $420 on that SSD, but I might have to be 420d out to pay that much as of now I really love car modifications, and I don't even have a car anymore. So I really don't want to go over my budget of $2,200.
Ah okay, I understand and apologize. I used to get "medicated" a bunch too, lawls. I know 100% I could build a system with everything you want + 80GB SSD (you don't need 160GB since you're mainly focused on 1 game) for $2200 or less, no doubt.

You probably know this but if you don't, when competitive gaming, your mouse pad and mouse and keyboard are just as important as your system, maybe more important. I play more RTS kind of stuff and use a Logitech Mini Optical, which is for fingertip/wrist control, and I have it paired with a Goliathus Speed Small mousepad. Amazing combo imo... Here's a very good guide to mouses/mousepads, though it's more geared for Starcraft players: http://www.gosugamers.net/starcraft/...-s-mouse-guide

Also, see that REP+ button on the bottom left? Use it! Not just for me, but a lot of people have helped you out in this thread and the REP system is OCN's way of saying thank you for helping me. It's actually pretty important as it helps weed out shady people for the For Sale forums... but it doesn't work if nobody REPs anyone else for helping. Check this thread: Reminder on the REP system.

When should I give out REP+ ?

It is a very simple concept.

If you have received useful help or information from a fellow member that has helped you in anyway and you wish to show them your appreciation you click on there REP+ button in thier profile and leave the appropriate comment and submit it. You may also REP the said member if you feel his contributions towards ANOTHER ( Not yourself ) member was helpful. When it comes to leaving a comment make sure that its to the point and nothing more.

It is that simple.


Why Should I give out REP+ to helpful/contributing members?

The REP system serves as sign to other members and points out the potentially helpful and trustworthy members on the forum. REP shows us that a member positively contributes to the forum and has the ability to help others within the community. We have a very varied member base, some members are better at one thing while others will be better at something else thus you will find some members will specifically help more in certain sections of the forum and on the other hand of the scale you will find members who have a wide knowledge and can help out in more than one section of the forums.

REP+ should be given out to helpful members as it is the only way you can really say ''Thankyou'' on a public scale and point out the positively contributing members....In the long run this can help many others on the forum also, you are not just simply REPPING the member but pointing out the member to others who potentially could do with help from that same member.

Well personnally I like going over a little on the PSU, mainly because if your cpu fails, it dies or whatever, but when your PSU fails, EVERYTHING that could die, dies :/

Plus I like to think when I've built a rig, I have room to add more powerful components etc. without straining the PSU too much

Man, all this stress about spending money.. kind've keeps my head off this reputation system. Thanks for filling me in, and now I feel terrible for not even thinking about it while I was in my own thread asking for help.
My apologies to everyone, and really... it was nothing selfish on my part. I don't want any green bars, because I don't deserve too many of 'em.. yet.
So, I am sorry. And please do forgive me, I have been stressed out (x10 this whole week).

You can get the 750 watt version for $200 but it's ETA is 10/20. Though these are newegg prices which tend to be marked up for brand new awesome products...

Is that seasonic 750w psu out yet?

You could also save a lot of money by getting a 5850 which has only 10-15% less performance than the 5870.

If anything I can wait for the new ATI cards to drop <5890 I believe>, but do prices usually drop when new cards come out?

You also might want to wait for the MSI Big Bang to come out as then we will know whether or not the Lucent Hydra technology is for real. The Hydra tech will supposedly allow you to run multiple GPUs and actually gain close to twice the performance for two, instead of 50% for today's Crossfire/etc. systems.
Can someone please let me know when this new technology will be out? I'm still quite confused, but I'm sure a google search would help. Don't be afraid to chime in!
