To those who are from Canada and have received your prize, did you have to pay any taxes or duty fees? kuri? SpikeSoprano?

No duties or taxes for me either. They just left it at my front door when I wasn't home, so I assume they didn't need to collect anything.

Wow, you guys weren't kidding when you said the prizes may arrive this week. I got home and saw this at my front door!

 

I'll post another pic after I move my system into it, hopefully sometime next week.

 

Hope all the other winners will get their prizes soon too. Thank you OCC and all the sponsors again!

 

I had some time today, so here it is after the hardware migration. I guess I should look into fan color coordination now that I have a glass side panel case... :yucky:

And being an older motherboard, I have to add that USB 3 expansion card at the bottom which messes up cable management a bit, but otherwise this case was so easy to build a system in. I love it!

I think you'd have better audiophile feedback on forums like https://www.canuckaudiomart.com:)


In Topic: Time for a New Build... Just Because

22 January 2019 - 02:47 AM

Just saw this thread. It looks like there are lots of us "old timers" here. I have a similar system with an i7-930, and it had a 5770 for the longest time. With my kids a little older, I finally get some time to myself, so I decided to upgrade the GPU to a RX570 this Christmas, catching a deal for it for $150 CAD (~$110 USD) for some light 1080p gaming. I can probably squeeze more frames with a newer CPU/mobo, but it seems good enough for my needs (occasional video editing for family videos, light gaming, internet/youtube, VPN to office for work, etc.).

 

That said, if you haven't decided yet, the prices will likely come down more closer we get to the summer (though that's still a few months away) once Ryzen 3 hits.
