About to finally pull the trigger

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
After a month of research and planning my taxes have finally arrived. I am about to pull the trigger on my shopping cart to get the parts coming to me. I don't need OS, HDDs (I got 2.32TB +32GB SSD) or mouse/keyboard.

Here is what I have so far

Apevia combo pack 4/8/24 pin extensions $7.99 (for blue/white murdermod sleeving)
Apevia 6pin extension $4.99
Lite-On Sata DVD Burner $17.99
Corsair Graphite Series 600T $159.99
Hanns-G 18.5" LCD Widescreen Monitor $94.99
ASRock 880G Extreme3 $108.99
XFX HD 6850 1GB $179.99
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE 3.2GHz $199.99
Corsair 650HX + Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 4GB (2x2GB) combo $144.98

Subtotal: $919.90
Shipping: $17.23

Grand Total: $937.13

After MIRs= $877.13 (But I never count MIRs as part of my budget...because well frankly by the time I get them I will have forgotten about them and it does not help when funding the initial purchase!)

I had $950 to spend on this part of the build.....

After I build this and sell my current sig rig I'll have another $125 to blow on parts.... With that I plan on getting 50' ft white and 50' blue paracord, blue and white heatshrink tubing, a PSU modding tool (my fingernail already got ripped off using the staple method) and to cool my CPU the Corsair H50.

I am dubbing this build The Corsair Heaven, (hence all the Corsair parts).

Let me know if I screwed up something and need to change.... remember I can only spend $950 on this build!

I don't think going non-modular and a slower CPU will make up for a better video card as I am only a casual gamer.... and the game that is played the most is WoW.... which is a very CPU intensive game... Thanks for the suggestions, but I've already bought 2 modular PSUs and I don't think I could honestly bring myself back to non-modular..... even with the case I am getting.
