Well, I figured a couple things out since the last time I posted.
And I am pretty sure I have everything settled.
I found out that Tigerdirect does not charge tax for the state I am in, and they also have a deal on free shipping. So, I am buying my monitor, my CPU, and my GPU from Tigerdirect.
Intel i5-750 - $199.99
ATI Radeon 5770 - $179.99
Samsung 24" LCD - $249.99
That's pure savings on shipping and tax since the prices are the same as on Newegg.
Then I am buying the rest from Newegg.
because of the 1.65V voltage, the 8-8-8-24 timing, and the $20 Mail-In Rebate.
Switched to this tower
because it was cheaper, had a coupon for free shipping, and I think it has better fans.
Everything else is the same.
Hard Drive I wanted is back in stock, so Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB - $74.99
Getting a DVD burner to cover all of my disc needs, since I will never use blu-ray.
Sticking with the corsair 650W PSU. I like that it was voted the best in 2009.
Anyways, everything accounted for...I am sitting at $1240.61 before Mail-In Rebates.
Meaning, $1,180.61 after rebates.
I guess the question now is..what should I add to the order?
My monitor comes with built in speakers which will hold me over until I can afford better.
I have a wireless keyboard and mouse already that I am pretty fond of.
I do not 'think' I will need a wireless network card, but if I end up wanting one I can always just order it.
Should I get a headset?
or like..a video game?
I will be plugging my XBOX 360 into my monitor as well.
I don't know. I have at least $70 I can still spend on whatever. (In reality, more like $200.)
(Waiting on this check to go through so I have the money to order it...as soon as I have the money I am placing the orders.)
