Building a new comp < 600

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
This is what i have so far, i dont need a video card so forget about that, please suggest better parts if there are any, and i have around 30$ left to buy a HSF but i thought for 30$ i might as well stick with stock cooling and wait till i have more money to upgrade. (plus i am using my friends CPU and if i sell my current comp i need to pay him for it.)
Also does anyone know how i do a REAL post of my newegg wishlist?, on this one i kinda just screen shotted it but i have seen some legitimate looking ones.

Change your ram, get a antec power supply probably around 500 watts or so you dont need 650w, and also I would change out your motherboard for a Gigabyte one instead.

The list doesn't seem to be complete... therefore we can't judge anything. Is there a video card in that bundle? What tier? (i.e. GTS 450 tier, GTX 460 tier, ~HD 6870, etc.)
Try using firefox addon "Fireshot" to screenshot the whole page (google it)

To start with though...
-Phenom II x2 555 + ASUS M4A87TD EVO - $190 (Much better motherboard [esp. for unlocking[, same price)
-Samsung F3 1TB is much cheaper (and also ships much faster) at Superbiiz - $51.48 shipped after coupon code "HELLO2011"
-Get the G.Skill Ripjaws 7-8-7 RAM; I guarantee you these can do the same 6-8-6 settings a the OCZ -- and the PSC ICs in the Ripjaws 7-8-7 should be better than the Samsung ICs (at least that's what OCZ RAM usually has) in the OCZ; OCZ has some quality control/DOA issues and there's a bit of unclearness as to whether they still honour warranties or not since they will be no longer manufacturing any memory at end-February.
-Be sure you have the free shipping promo code on that DVD drive!

Thanks for the advice and most of it is really good, except that i have 2 F3's in my cart not just 1. And i already have a video card here.

Alright, just to let you know some prices have now changed (i.e. F3 1TB is now $54 after a promo code).
