so as a little fun project i was thinking about building a computer. only thing is i cant buy it all at once. so, i was thinking about buying it piece by piece, till i have a full computer.
so to start out i was thinking about pre ordering this case.
then is was going to get either this CPU or this motherboard
then this ram
then this psu
then this cooler along with this wifi card and this dvd drive
then i am thinking about getting this video card
in the end it turns out to be $1175.02 shipped to my house. I used some newegg price matching to get the 2500 for $214, the mobo for $189 and the ram for $47.
what do you think?
if thats to hard to read or if you want a faster way to look (tl;dr) heres another list for you
Shinobi XL case by Bitfenix
intel 2500k for $229.99
ASUS Maximum Gene-z/ gen 3 z68 motherboard for $189
Corsair vengence 8 gb two dimms for $47
modular XFX 750w psu
coolit systems eco CPU water cooler
D-Link Xtreme n Desktop adapter
ASUS 24x Internal super multi DVD with lightscribe
XFX Radeon Hd 6870 900MHz
so what is you oppinion on what im thinking about getting. remember, im not getting it all at once, so what do you think would be the best order to buy? also, if you have seen the products thats listed for cheaper, please say so and i can pricematch about everything. if you recomend something can you see if its on www.newegg.ca or www.ncix.ca ?
edit: changed video card from EVGA GTX 560 fermi 850 MHz 1024 MB superclocked to a XFX Radeon Hd 6870 900MHz because one, its cheaper, and two it is a bit faster, (and i like the look of it ).
EDIT 2.0: dropped i5-2500 for $214 to a intel 2500k for $229.99
