    this came today. I just finished the build. used a recycled antec solo II case from my first PC build ever Back in Jan 2012.
    I used hot deals superbiiz 169 for this cpu
    I used a new seasonic x750 from hotdeals new egg. 97
    I used 4 sticks of the magic samsung ram from hotdeals newegg. 31
    I used a 256gb crucial msata from hotdeals buy.com 126
    I used an asus maximus v gene I found a deal on amazon 180
    I used hotdeals newegg for the cougar cooling fans 4 for 32
    I used a microsoft replacement windows ultimate 7
    the pro it replaced cost 119 .
    I used an amazon msi 7970 warehouse deal 300.
    A dvd player for 13

    total 1060 for a beastly machine



    I was all mac for around 14 years after a huge problem with windows 95 I stopped using windows for a long time.

    I started back with windows 7 as a bootcamp drive in a 2010 mac pro. I finally said I can't stand apple and started building windows pcs last Jan of 2012. Thanks to this site and this hot deals section . I own 10 pc's running bitcoin and I am being paid 150 a month to heat my home. I also built one for a friend . Has been a lot of fun much more fun then doing exotic mac mini upgrades.



    My conclusions after 11 good builds and a few do overs (they work I just did not like the mobos for what I was trying to do)

    pcs are easy to build and fun . Find this bargain section helps a lot.

    I will take a break with builds till the spring but still look for and post bargains. I want a bigger msata and a mobo with true sata III support for the msata slot. Mushkin should have a 480gb msata soon.

    Thanks again. phil
