Default Re: Just bought my new rig. What do you think?

How much did you actually pay?

For those that dont want to Pick out the Specs...

CPU - Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q9550

Motherboard - EVGA nForce 780i SLI

RAM - 4GB (4x1GB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory (Corsair or Major Brand)

Graphics Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX260 896MB SLI

Power Supply - Corsair CMPSU-1000HX

HDD - 1TB (500GBx2) SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD

Optical Drive - LG 20X DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW DRIVE DUAL LAYER, and 16X DVD ROM

Case - CoolerMaster Cosmos S Gaming Full Tower

seems likes its just the tower with a few random stuff.

Nice specs, but you should have built it yourself if you're gonna spend that much.

Sweet rig, but you could've saved a lot of money, and possibly upgraded a bit.

Default Re: Just bought my new rig. What do you think?

I actually paid $1995 for it, I got 5% off. I was planning on building it myself, but when I priced it out on Newegg it came to a lot more.

thanks for looking it over guys!

someone also needs to help me overclock the q9550. i've never overclocked before.
