Well, I have a few parts now........been going a bit slow, due to my work being extremely slow.
I went with the Corsair 500R(white) case, the EVGA GeForce 550ti GPU, Corsair Vengeance RAM(low profile) and Corsair 650HX PSU....it's semi modular. I also got a basic ASUS DVD drive.
So, I'm part way there.....would still like to go with the SSD boot drive route, if I can, we'll see. Going a little outside my original budget, but I'm sure some of you know how that goes.......you start looking ,and you see something a little better on sale, something you thought was good gets some bad reviews, etc. etc. Of course, this is my first one, so it's very overwhelming, but I'll get it! One way or another. I heard that putting the heatsink/CPU fan on is a real pain, so a little nervous about that. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
Trying to sell a piece of equipment that is overkill for what I do, downgrade a little, and free up some cash in the process, thus allowing be to buy the remainder of my parts.
