What Do You Think?

Postby Tech_Greek » Tue May 29, 2007 9:39 pm

Custom Build that I've been thinking about doing on this paycheck...

CASE - Thermaltake (Undecided( 0 $0-300
MOBO - XFX 680i Board - $259.99
RAM - 2gb DDR2 [Kingston] - Free (currently using )
CPU - Current Gateway's Pent D 2.8 Ghz - Free (currently using )
GFX - BFG 7800 GT - Free (currently using )
SFX - XFi Platinum - Free (currently using )

Everything will be upgraded but for the moment I'll just be swapping the mobo and case out.

Are you doing any modifying to the build? If not, I think you've posted in the wrong section :shock:

Personally, I'm a fan of eVGA because of their warranties.

Check the reviews:

I believe they are both less expensive than the board you've chose as well.. Give some thought into the 650i boards too.. Same performance, even less $$ :)

I would go with either XFX of EVGA since both have great warranties.

Other than that I would go with the TT Armor.
