Holy S*** Check Out My New Computer!
Last week, I began ordering parts for my first custom make. Instead of buying everything off newegg, I ordered the CPU, Mobo, and Graphics Card off other online retailers that were cheaper and had no sales tax. I purchased the hard drive at Fry's.
I have already purchased:
Processor - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ -$290
Graphics Card - eVGA 256-P2-N518 Geforce 7800GT 256MB -$340 (w/mobo)
Motherboard - eVGA 133-K8-NF41 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD -340$ (w/card)
Hard Drive - Seagate Barricuda 300GB 7200 RPM 16MB CACHE -$90
PSU - ASPIRE Chameleon ATX-AS550W-SV ATX12V v2.03 550W -$55
Case- Rosewill TU-155 -$60
What I have yet to purchase (open for suggestions):
RAM- CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System -$195
Monitor-Rosewill R912E Black 19" 8ms LCD Monitor -$220
In total, this system will be around 1500 w/tax and shipping. Pretty nice, eh?
