post #151 of 415
So, I just decided to look at what Maingear had

Quantum SHIFT for like over 3K
Had a i7 930
GTX 580
Asus Rampage 3
12gb of 1333 mhz ram
750gb hd
1 dvd drive


You can build that for half price, just saying

Just read through all this and this seems like a very confusing thread with what everyone is recommending.
I think that for the most people on OCN are knowledgeable and I would def trust many with my system as well, but I think that many of the recommendations are not coming from experience and a lack of knowledge on the type of PC your son is aiming at.

So many different things people say about what he "needs", in all reality its not that hard.
I personally also do video editing and rendering. If he knows he wants SLI then make sure he gets that with reasonable cards to simply please him. Also i7 SB is def a given in this situation, I find the 980x price still unjustifiable. I would also go with at least 8GB of ram for this sort of build.

If you would prefer a build list PM me and I will work on one for you.

Kudos to you for doing something like this for and with your son.

Got the monitor out of the way now, thank you.

I know a little bit, but I can't build a computer from scratch. I know that his processor is a AMD and I know what INTEL is, and I know how to put in ram. But that's about it. I know nothing about technical specs/whatnot.

If you are completely computer illiterate and want it to be a surprise I'm sure if you post your area you could arrange something with a guy from here.

There is no way, I can hold this off. I've been saving for a couple months now. his bday is on march 3rd, and I can't hold this off.

This is kinda of a surprise, and He has NO IDEA that I will be doing this, haha. So it will be fun for him, but I Don't want to do it with parts, Because the joy of him seeing the computer will be better I think for me and our family. Instead of just looking at a box full of parts. (OR I Could wrap the parts up and make presents for each individual part) but, that would pretty much ruin the whole "Surprise".

I like thay iBUYPOWER PC Link from newegg. I Will be looking into that, and post here if I have questions, thanks again.

-John.

The Replies are coming in to fast it's hard to keep up.
Have you only SEEN your son build a computer once, or has he actually only built one computer? I don't know your son, but if he's anything like me, he'd actually hate receiving a pre-built computer as a present. Even a nice one. I enjoy picking out my own parts. I have my own brand preferences. I'm very picky about every part that goes into my rigs.

Here's what I think you should do- tell your son that you could not afford a birthday present this year, because money is so tight. Tell him you only got him a card. Give him a birthday card with a $4,000 check in it, and tell him to use it all to build his dream computer.

If your son is anything like me, having $4,000 to pick out and spend on his own parts would be much, much more awesome than buying him a pre-built computer. Like I said, I don't know if your son only built a computer once to try it, or if he really enjoys picking out and assembling his own hardware as I do. If you think he's anything like me, you should go with my idea!

Anyway, if you simply must buy prebuilt, then go with Maingear like others have mentioned.

I live around Seattle, Washington. If anyone is around here?


Sorry WannaBeOCer, but I do not want to spend 160$ on the case unless any other views on that case you linked?
