ok well so far the antec is what im going with..
I'd also say snag a used Xig, I see them for around 25 shipped all day long, sometimes cheaper. The 1283 is a great cooler though I do like that one Jr posted up. You could save some money going that route, but if you're not confident or comfortable with it, I don't blame ya, but I've had great luck here on TPU buying used cooling/components, so I definately recommend doing that route for some components.
And my thoughts on DX11 is simply this, wait for 2nd gen if not later on, sure 1st gen will kick ass, but there won't be nearly enough DX11 goodness out there to justify it (just like DX10 I'm willing to bet), so many people will push to say that's the way to go, but I don't really think it should be a serious reason of purchase this year, maybe by late next year it might be worth saying I'll buy a DX11 vid card, but having that as a primary reason for waiting now...bleh...there better be DX11 games out now for me to even consider that as a serious reason for investment...e-peen not included.
Any rate, looking forward to seeing you get some good upgrade stuff on your budget charper, I think you'll be happy when it's all said and done!
yah ima go post a WTB thread..
why not a coolermaster 690
He wants it for 100 shipped.
What about that?
I was going to say upgrade your VGA but for $100 your card is about as good as it gets. Everything else in your rig is fine too, so I guess a case would be a nice cosmetic upgrade. Look for cases by manufacturers like Antec and Raidmax.
i wouldn't really reconmend raidmax there not that good in my opinion i'd reconmend Antec,Coolermasters,Lian-li and silverstone cases
Just keep your $100 for something else.
another 2 gig of ram and you will have a nice system
dont bother doing major upgrades just now
if it was me id either spend it on something else or save it for upgrades later this year
Same here. I'd wait for more money, then get something better. Granted I can say that because I am actually pretty good at saving my money.
4GB of some corsair good memory would be a good upgrade. Agreed with reventon and kieranD
sell you current GPU add that money to your 100.00 and buy a 260gtx 192 or 4870 thats what I would do. Then your system would be fine for the foreseeable future.
Need a new case? You can't beat one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021
bad bad bad bad time to buy that. I bought it off the egg almost a year and half ago for 70$ -20$ MIR with free shipping = 50$. That thing goes on sale allll the time.
That's a good investment. One of the best cases out right now.
I have cheaper cases that are equal to what the 900 offers, shoot me a PM if you go the way of a case purchase, Im sure I have something you'd like.
You're right price is a bit high right now but for an all around case you can't beat it.
me and sneeky have set a deal for a nzxt beta case... Thats what im getting
Cool on that. Do you have a picture?
I concur, see the last link in my sig.
Nice lookin case, congrats!
GJ sneeky! Enjoy your new case man.
