UPDATE: MORE PARTS MORE POWER!!! HD 5870 x2 2250$ so Far, more money to come!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 51
is blu ray necessary?
get rid of it if its not

take the money from that and get a better power supply
corsair would be a good choice, antecs also

do you really need win7 pro?
check out what each of the versions have added onto them

mousepad can also wait, test different mice and make sure you like it before you buy

obsidians are horrible for aircooling, skip it

grab something like a lian li for quality
antec900/1200
haf
etc. things with fans and good airflow. id personally grab a lian li

and by feb, you should kick back and wait till fermi gets released
dont wanna buy an expensive vid card then have it drop prices(theoretically)

Windows 7 Professional may indeed be absolutely unnecessary. Compare for yourself and save money:

Then I suggest you try and browse through some of the OCN sales threads for a better price on Win7. As people noted you don't need Win7 Pro but you could get a better price from a member selling it most likely if you still think you want it anyways.

Also I tend to find most members on here a bit more trustworthy than random e-bay guy... plus since you will be using paypal you will still be able to protect yourself to some degree from fraud.

Depends on the state. http://www.dol.gov/dol/topic/youthla...quirements.htm

But yea, I have some of my middle school students who have jobs already at the age of 14 as well.
