First Build; AMD X6 - Page 5

post #41 of 66
since you are not planning to OC you rig, then 1333 ram should be fine for you. I would take 1600 sticks, but it's a personal fixation.

1. Buying the 212+ on Newegg is unwise investment, Newegg charges a ripoff price for it.... Xigmatek GAIA costs >$10 less and outperforms it
2. Better RAM, lower price!

Try buying a 212+ from

.

It's a few dollars cheaper, and it also has free shipping.

you can find a 212+ in retail stores for as low as $15 when on sale. make sure you don't overpay.

Indeed, I do find newegg overpricing only a few things. But, once I eventually get ahold on all the parts and without changing them, I will and have been searching websites for parts and comparing prices. Currently I've only compared prices to tigerdirect, newegg, and amazon. Of course, I could compare more, but I don't know any good TRUSTED sites that won't rip me off. geeks.com looks fair, I'll do more research later today, and of course post a new newegg list just to order the parts in one wishlist for all to see, instead of 50 billion links.

Where are you located? at my hardware store and i guess in most propably, you can pick up an older zalman cpu cooler quite cheaply... it's very quiet and does a very good job of cooling- thats my experience at least.. and don't be scared by asus, they produce very good components, mobos with dual bios switch etc. newer boards (as of now) have amd3+ sockets should you wish to upgrade at a time.
Also check out Komplett.no or .dk bought allot of stuff there, it's simple, good prices and ships internationally i think!

I live in Michigan, USA. So, probably high shipping costs?

Very sorry, they do not mention anything about shipping outside scandinavia, just checked. didn't double check before i posted.. but giv 'em a call anyway though, they all speek english and is very helpfull! plus you can propably reduct the HIGH tax if youre outside the EU, that will save you about 15%

It is a bit of a hazzle i know, but to save a few $$ mean you can spend it on hardware.. what ever you end up doing i hope you have a very good time building your rig best regards all the way from europe
hope i helped and not just confused you..

Indeed you have helped! And, every single post in this thread. Just a quick question, not to change the subject too much but what are some good reasons to buy this new rig, because it is a lot of money, I'm almost wiping my savings out, other than for videogames. Haha, need to explain to my Dad, my Mom is fine with it. You know how parents are I'm 17 so, yeah xD
