    I got tired of dealing with MSI's shitty service (mobo stopped playing nice with GTX 560s, even after a BIOS update. Surprisingly, it had no problems with GTX 280s), so I bit the bullet and spent some money on building a new rig. I bought a EVGA X58 Classified3 E770 that is great at supporting overclocking, a Cooler Master 1200 watt PSU, and a Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced with USB 3 support. I bought the 1200 watt PSU because I'm saving up for 2 GTX 590s or I'll wait for the dual core 600 series to come out early next year (I'm super jealous of that drunk Stalker2 and his 590).

    So here's the final product:
    CPU: Intel I7 965X
    Motherboard: EVGA Classified3 E770
    Memory: 6 GB RAM
    Graphics Card: 2x EVGA GTX SC 560 SLI
    Hard Drive: 1 TB HDD
    Sound Card: HDMI to GTX 560
    Power Supply: Cooler Master 1200 Watts
    Case: HAF 932 Advanced
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

    Did I do good, 'baggers?

    Oh and I may ebay my MSI Eclipse mobo, 2 GTX 280s, and 1000 watt PSU. What would be a fair asking price for each of those?

    Did you drive your 2012 GT600 Shelby Cobra down to Frys to pick up the parts?

    I don't know how much an Alienware is these days, but I remember when they were more expensive than our current debt ceiling is. What'd you pay, eleventy-billion sheckles?

    Oh, wait. you said it was hot, does that mean you got it from a negro?

    Alienware's not as insane as they used to be. I was looking at them when I bought my Vaio, and they're honestly just not as impressive as they used to be compared to higher-end models from other companies.

    Yeah, but companies like Falcon Northwest, I Buy Power, and others still **** you for a few thousand to build a new PC, not including the parts. It will always be cheaper to build it yourself or get a local shop to do it for you.
