$650 dollar build help - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Your power supply is good but for $10 more you can have a nice 500w MODULAR to help keep extra wires out of your case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341016

but my last 2 recommendations put you $15 more overbuget but only an extra 10 if you count the $5 you'd save by getting the OCZ memory. Nice upgrades for $10 extra bucks IMHO

That's an easy way to save about $35
I'll look into this... the price of OS software is rediculous! Thanks for the link below also!

The only thing I am paying for shipping on here is the keyboard I believe ... i'll take a look at tiger direct and see what I can muster up. Ive never used them but have looked on their site for open box deals...

I second this and another option is the NZXT Gamma if you don't want to deal with a rebate. Both of those cases are miles better than the Rosewill and don't cost much more at all. I'd also get the Corsair 400W PSU. I'm sure the Antec is pretty good but it looks like junk and something that would be in a pre-built system. I'd also maybe try and find some combo deals since you are buying so much. That's one way to save some money. For example:

I saw the combo deal on their and I was gonna use it to shave off a couple bucks but it wouldn't let me add it to my wish list for some reason... but i was still gonna use it when i check out.

As for the case, I'm really trying to keep my costs down. I know 10 bucks may mean all the difference when building and in longevity of the build, but if I can lower the price by finding a deal somewhere on the site, Ill check out NZXT since they have been getting some positive feedback here. Thanks fellas...

I was hoping that maybe a monitor deal will come out around 150 bucks sometime... seems like I always get one in my email from newegg when I'm not buying from newegg, but when i need one its not there

Also, I would think the onboard video would handle the 23 in monitor for movies and such...??? or should I try and upgrade to a cheap Vid card?

As long as you are going to be doing any gaming, the onboard video will be fine.
