Default Final Once Over

https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...px?ID=10544968

Well I was shooting for $1100 gaming rig, with the rebates I think it came out about right. Just wanted to see what everyone thought, I was shooting for the most performance possible with my budget, do you think I achieved it? If not what would you change?

Merged double..

Get the Biostar I45, Tuniq TX-2 and rid of those Dominators.. really overpriced!

Get a 750TX from Buy.com, so you have upgrade room if you want two HD 4850's in the future

Figures, the RAM I wanted was out of stock as well. Guess I'll go with this one instead.

Definitely will take your advice on the TX-2, considering I don't need that much and it has great ratings.

Your sure 650w wont handle two HD4850's? Can't hurt to be on the safe side though, especially for only an extra $10. ($20 extra on newegg)

As for the dominators, $110 after rebate didn't seem that much more than any other RAM I found with same specs (in fact its cheaper than most).

Also, nice save on the Mobo, with the P5Q Deluxe and an HD4850 the first ram slot is not usable, and that would have sucked. Probably will go with the Biostar as I know for sure I'll be able to get at all Ram slots with my card.

e8500 is 20 bucks more than e8400.
20 = worth it if you are planning on overclocking.

i keep looking at that biostar mobo, it rocks for oc'ing...but it is so horribly ugly it makes me cringe. one of the reviews on newegg (and i take them with a grain of salt but havent tried to research this) that the vcore increases in steps of .05...which kinda sucks if you are running a 45nm that may only need .0125 or .025 volt to be stable. anyone know if that is true?
