Freight: $100 for regular (give or take)

 

Granted i could of put higher spec ram in (which i should have but didnt) and can probably go to the deluxe model board as well and will keep you under the 3k mark, but you dont get too many flashy bits (aka new fans and whatnot) but that didnt concern me as much as the haf's standard fans flow well.

 

Edit: Just built your machine on their page and came to $2318 (what you have listed in your sig)

Yeah fair enough its a lot of paint and fans etc though, wouldnt it be more benefitical to get better core parts now then look at painting and new fans etc later on? saves you having to double dip and waste money by re buying video cards etc? But hey its just my opinion.

 

Also with the gtx 280, you can get a 285 golden sample for cheaper then that evga one your looking at.

Really. I really have to know where you get all your info. Have you actually owned 1 or 2 or 3?

Well now they've finally lowered their prices to the appropriate level for their performance. The 285 is mainly the card I have my beef with now. But if the 285 never debuted I bet the 280 would still trying to get sold at $350+

its cheaper and a ton more powerful. btw try a site called staticice.com.au to compare prices on parts in Aus.

 

Oh and the 850W is Massive Massive overkill.... 650 would run it fine

im pretty happy about this build though, the case i chose is definat i love it.

but the

Intel Core i7 920 2.66Ghz

is that actually faster then my CPU i got listed

being a amd quad core 3ghz?

i know i spend an extra like $200-300 on cooling but i do have a cooling problem at my place so id rather go with that extra "UMPHH".

and at this point I'm happy with the 4g of ram cause I'm buying the same double pack again soon to make it 8 so yeah as i said Ive got future upgrades in mind and am happy with it currently and id rather got a factory super clocked 280 then a inno 285\

 

the PSU though i will drop thanks for that i was thinking that it may be a bit far eh but would the 650w run my hardware with the next ram upgrade and another 280? cause that's the next things i wanna do so when i get the next 280 will i need a new PSU if i go with the 650 now?

For the extra 300 or so bucks to upgrade to the i7 + board + 3 sticks of ram it is worth it, i havent tried the new AMD chips, but from what i have read is that the i7 stomps all over the current AMD's. Why are you so cracked onto getting a 280? the 275 pccasegear currently stocks has a very good looking cooling system, and its also 100 bucks cheaper and is very similar/better performance. Or they have the 285 xfx black edition for 689 so 10 bucks more.

I agree the 285 is stupid, get the 4850x2 or 275
