Default Re: cheap(er) computer

lol, thanks man... i know, it never works like you want it to -.-

yeah, ive heard that case is really good... but couldnt i drop it and use my old one, and upgrade to some cheap 4gb ddr 1066 RAM (mine is $38 after MIR)

EDIT: just noticed there is not free shipping... would shipping of a case cost that much?

Wow. This thread sure does have some twists and turns.

Too many cooks in the kitchen. Good luck with whatever you guys finally come up with.

The antec 300 i think has better cooling (Has a 140mm fan on top and two 120mm fans in front) but the elite 330 looks cool.

Go for the 1066 ram man, if you dad doesnt mind waiting for the rebate


EDIT:
The motherboard i reccomended you supports the Phenom II Quad Core series, so if you ever want to upgrade you can.. And also toxicity i think its really cool your gonna build your own computer. Hopefully you stick with it man

Nope. Sorry. It just has spots for 2 120mm fans in front. The Antec 300 has a top 120mm and rear 120mm. But still better than the cooler master.

The cooler master doesnt have free shipping.. The case is $40, plus 20 to ship it= $60..


The Antec 300 is $58 and has the free shipping promo

Prodigy said that the antec 300 had 3 fans. I was just pointing out that has 2 fans in different places. I think you would be fine with the Cooler Master you have now.
