Well, I was supposed to have bought this months ago, but have only now gotten around to it. I have put together a set of specs for the core components of the machine I am going to put together. This is actually the first computer I will have built.

I would appreciate feedback on the core components. How did I do?

Total damage: $830.97

I don't really follow hardware too much, so I really wouldn't be able to tell if I was being ripped off or not. What do you think?

That'll be a really nice rig, and the prices seem pretty good. Double check all components on newegg before you buy, tho'. You might be able to save even more.

i don't feel like paying a premium for gamer memory is really worth it
but the rest looks good
especially the 7600GT XXX Edition
i heard you get a free pass to milfhunter with that <img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif>

Don't buy anything from TigerDirect. They have poor customer service, and their rebates are bad as well. Check directcanada.com (free shipping on orders over $150), ncix.com (chance to get an open box item, but DirectCanada is usually cheaper anyway) and pricenetwork.ca (you can check for prices on hardware to help with price matching). My vote goes to directcanada.com
