That MOBO is good. TBH honest, better off going with the 670 FTW 2GB they have for sale at the same price point.

I wouldn't purchase anything with less than 2GB VRAM now though. When I had a 1920x1080 monitor I would come pretty close to 1.5VRAM in Metro.

Yea it is. Specially for someone looking to upgrade to Sandy.

I didn't find anything on NewEgg yet, will wait until CyberMonday I guess. Want to buy a new TV but TigerDirect seem to have better deals.

Who would buy a 580 over a 7950 or 7970? Craziness!

I'm looking at some mechanical keyboards and hard drives

Extra gig of vram would come in handy for any number applications. Though I'm not advocating one over the other, just posted a few deals.

Got a 560ti months ago cheaper with free BF3 and a HDMI cable. I have since upgraded to a 7950 and am glad I did.

NewEgg could have done a better job organizing their fckking sale pages.

Thing is huge and hard to sort through.

No shite. 16 pages of pc components and no way to narrow the search further. On their normal daily deals you could break them down

Yea, was the reason I stopped searching.

It is just pages and pages of shite. You can barely narrow down categories. NewEgg is better than this.

Hopefully they will have better options on monday.

Of course you can just go to the pc components page, narrow to power supplies for example, and featured items will be the default options view. That will highlight deals and special offers

re: A few good deals on newegg..


I havent heard of that brand. Is it reliable?

I've heard stick with corsair, cooler master and seasonic (and a few more) if you want a top notch/reliable cooler

I think those Prodigys are tacky TBH.

Ever looked at the Fractal Design's Node?

That will be a nice rig there. I just built an iTX build. It was an AMD APU on FM2 socket though, not for gaming but a HTPC.

I fell like my next build will be micro ATX if I go Ivy-E and if I go mainsteam Haswell it will be a iTX. I'm over Full size ATX boards. Sort of into the small form factor thing now also.

I actually have heard extremely terrible things about Cooler Master PSUs.

Corsair and Seasonic are solid though.

Raidmax is ok. Second tier brand. The unit I bought had a 77% four or five egg rating

My previous unit was a rosewill and lasted 5 years

Its not like I've got the most high end build to support anyhow
