Plus add 20$ or so for an ODD, but i never buy those ahead of time because shipping prices fluctuate so much.
Wutcha u think? Its a 650$ budget (around there)
Im getting 500$ for my current rig
150$ from the egg for RMA
50$ from a computer repair
and maybe 60$ from another computer repair but dont add this in because this is a big maybe
but i owe my friend 50$ so it all evens out
What do you think? Please nothing more expensive than this because im already over budget and cant pay my friend in full right away. But if you have better for less/same please post here.

I'd consider the PS a questionable choice. Go with something more well known/reliable...heck its an Antec case so why not go with an Antec PS?

I know. That 50TB HSD is worth $500 itself!

That looks like a really good budget build. The only thing that I would change is that power supply. The power supply is the one part of the computer that I wouldn't skimp on because if it goes, it can take all of your components with it. I would go for a trusted brand such as corsair instead of a bargain brand, even if it costs you a little more. However, that would put you over budget (a 550W corsair psu is around $80) so that is up to you. Other than that, you build looks great.

Agreed, if that is the rig you are selling, you can get way more for it.

Well, little known to the buyer the PSU is fried and it took the entire system with it, so basically its a paperweight.

I completely agree about the PSU, but i good one sint in my budget, so i had to do what i had to do. Itll work and hopefully not fry my rig, thats all im looking for right now.


Perhaps i can squeeze in an extra 2 $ for this

What is the extra blue LED fan for? Also, it might be worth investing in something better than that Rosewill fan for your heatsink.

I agree with the folks who recommended a different power supply. The 550-650 watt Antec ones are pretty reasonably priced.

The extra fan is for the side of the case, and i posted alinky to a nice rosewill PSU that i will consider, but i really like the Blue LED in that failmax

EDIT - Just remembered i have a spare 120mm lying around so i dropped that rosewill fan and am using my extra one, thus saving my 6$, that i cant spens because im already over budget by 6$.
