So I have wanted to build a computer for sometime, and with the help of the good ol' tax returns, I have enough to do so.
I made a list on Newegg that was rather close to the narwhal build this month. The only issue is I am a bit over my price and I am not sure where I should cut or where I could get a better deal on some of the pieces. I am going to use this computer as my designated gaming and recording pc (As I always have wanted to try the streaming and 'lets play' videos but never had the best hardware to do so.
The wishlist number is 26760447 (Can't post a link because I am new.)
I am a bit unsure if the power supply will still be a good choice with the i7, but I went with a 2gb video card instead of the 3gb the guide offered.
I really wanted to get this all for as close to a $1k as possible (Give or take $100) but this is seeming less and less possible as I notice I still need to get the OS (Windows 7 preferred), a monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse at the very least. Speakers are optional as I can just use my headset until I can afford a set.
Any help is greatly appreciated, as I am bit bummed about how expensive this is turning out to be, especially as a similar build would have cost a bit less about two months ago.
Thanks in advance.
