Omg, why won't newegg show shipping price? What the heck is wrong with my computer today......

Rosewill z775, is the same price as the Artic 7 pro... (if you add up the shipping)
So unless Z775 is actually better than 7 pro, then I can change it.....

As for the PSU, is there anything cheaper? Really would not like to go with rebates.... If possible
(600 watts or more)


Why is Raidmax on the void list? They been in the market for quite some time now...

How do you describe low quality on a PSU?

All I care for is the power they are rendering.

As for graphics card, do can you find one better? cheaper?

better card for cheaper? I don't think so currently

you can take a look @ the 3870 which is cheaper yet still performs
or you can look @ the 4830 that is priced in between, and can OC to 4850 speeds

Is this a fake or what?

Newegg.com - DIAMOND Viper 3870PE4512SB Radeon HD 3870 512MB 256-bit GDDR4 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Better than a 4850? Anyone know if it works?

Even without the mail in rebate, its a heck of a deal

It has great reviews

It's a HD 3870, they aren't anywhere close to the performance of a 4850.

Chipset
Chipset Manufacturer ATI
GPU Radeon HD 3870
Core clock 775MHz
Stream Processors 320 Stream Processing Units
Memory
Memory Clock 2400MHz
Memory Size 512MB
Memory Interface 256-bit
Memory Type GDDR4

That does not compare to a 4850? I actually look at it as being better.
