Re: Monitor & Box for $1000 Max
Putting out poor alternatives isn't exactly helpful. The only helpful alternative that you posted was the monitor but it's more like a $30 price difference and not just good looks, the actual screen is better quality. And this isn't a build for some techy that just wants balls to the wall performance, I bet she would want something that looks nice.
About the RAM, yours costs $30 more, check again.
The PSU.. Research more before you recommend, don't effing repeat what someone else said in the last thread you read. XClio has a pretty good name for themselves in PSUs but the name isn't everything, espeically since 95% of the time, that name doesn't even make the **** PSU. The OEMS do.
Wasn't trying to b**** you out but do you really want to be responsible for making someone buy something that really doesn't suit them as well as something else?
Old rig sold.. :(
