Well, after weeks of delays, I have finally ordered my PC
Here are the final specs:
AMD Phenom ii x2 555 BE (going to unlock to 4 cores)
G Skill 4GB 1333 DDR3 RAM
Biostar A880G+ MotherBoard
Antec BP550 Plus 550w PSU
Cooler Master Elite 430 Case
I'm also getting 2 80mm MASSCOOL fans and 1 120mm blue LED Rosewill fan
Also, a Laptop HDD to IDE adapter so I can use my laptop Hard Drive as my main, until I get a SSD
I was going to get a 500GB HDD but with that flood in Taiwan, Hard Drive prices have skyrocketed, so I will make do with 224 GB until HDD prices go down to about $50 for 500GB like they were before.
I'm also going to get a Sapphire Radeon 6850 for $150 next month, but I'll still have about $100 left over, so I have two options for next month.
1. I buy a 64 GB SSD and put all my OS files for ultimate boot speeds
2. I hold on to it and get a monitor the next month, hopefully a 23 inch 1080p
Depending on how much money I have next month, I probably can buy the monitor later and still buy the SSD at the end of this month, so #1 is my preferred choice, but I want to know what you guys think. Please rate my system and tell me if I should do 1 or 2!
And another thing that sucks, the adapter thing for my HDD has 3 day shipping instead of the 2 day shipping everything else has, so I won't be able to use it until Monday, unless UPS has a change of heart and brings it early :)
Pics coming soon, and I will most likely be playing Minecraft, TF2, L4D, and those types of low graphics games until I get my GPU.
Expect a lot more posts next week, and happy 11/11/11!
