Let's be fair, sometimes you don't want everything in one device. Also, the mobility of a laptop is a pretty big feature.

"Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available $969.42"

I'm not sure where you are from but not every state and every county has the same taxes in the US. On top of that not every website charges tax.

A person in Delaware and a person in California could have ordered these same exact parts at the same exact time with free shipping from the same retailers and there would be a 10% price difference.

If this person is from a county where there is no sales tax then this price is not post tax, because it was never taxed.

If I ordered this it would be more than $969

...when available. Apparently you don't read.

Newegg doesn't charge tax for most states in the US. Also Amazon doesn't charge taxes in some states either.

Looking at the stores he bought from there is a strong chance that no taxes and shipping were paid.

I buy from newegg all the time. it's free shipping and no tax because Newegg is in NJ and I'm in PA.

Move the drives down to the bottom rack and remove the middle rack for more airflow. It will really help to push more fresh air on the GPU

depends on how long you wait. I'll pop another 760 into my rig but it won't be for a long time. by then it'll be much cheaper used.

but that is pre-tax. depending what state you live in and where you order from you could pay between 0% and 10% which would put it up around $1100. For me it would be around $1050. Newegg doesn't charge tax in my state but amazon does.

also keep in mind when you pay more for luxury items in other industrialized nations you benefit from a good socialized healthcare system. especially in the UK.

In America, we don't have that benefit.

I have three drives.

SSD for windows and apps, and working on art. HDD for games, and music. HDD for art storage.

this way when the games HDD breaks down from way too much use, my art on and OS are safe.

I think about coolers like PSUs, and cases. If you buy a really nice one now... you won't have to think about them for a long time. you know that they'll work with any upgrades in the future.

You buy a cheap Cooler, cose or PSU and you might regret it in a few years if GPUs and CPUs are more demanding.

what are your thoughts on the PSU? I've been looking at that model. I'm wondering how the cable management and sound are. I think I read that the fan doesn't even turn on until it's reaches 40% power

nice, I have similar parts inside of a define R4 with a 650w and 16gb ram for work. the CPU and GPU are great together for gaming.

$30 for that PSU is crazy. If you ever decide to upgrade you could sell it online and get more for it

would it be better to flip the CPU cooler so that the fan blows across the heatsink and into the exhaust fan?

not every build is for gaming. some people genuinely need 16gb of RAM, and have no need for a $400 GPU

I bought a 128gb and have a bunch of adobe programs, and a dozen or so games installed with about 16 gb to spare.

If you're not going to run games or any other programs off of it just get whatever is cheap. amazon was having a sale on ssd earlier today. 20% off I think

Does adding that extra fan add to the noise level or is it pretty silent?
