Hi all current pc is starting to give me more grief than its worth so its time for an upgrade
I'm planning on reusing my case (Antec 1200), kb + mouse, tv (monitor), optical drives + hdds, wireless NIC, + already have a win7 disc.
Ideally I'd like it to come under $1200.
CPU Core i7 3770 $308
CPU Fan cooler master 212 EVO $34
RAM 16GB G.skill Ripjaws X PC3-12800 (1600MHz) (2x8GB) $139
MOBO Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H $159
SSD Samsung 840 120GB $102
GPU Gigabyte GTX 660ti $319
PSU Corsair TX-650M $119
2.5" to 3.5" adapter ~ $10
8 pin cable extention $7
I was contemplating getting the 8GB kit to save a few bucks but i figured the 16GB kit helps "future proof" given the next gen of consoles are expected to have 8GB of ram. Although it might be overkill given this is a computer for "work purposes"
any suggestions / ways to improve / save $?
Thanks guys & gals
