Re: Any sweet deal on a pre-built with slots to upgrade?

Your budget does not give you space for an SSD. A good 120 GB SSD is about another $100. Going beyond that and your money would be better spent on a better GPU.

Hmm, I work in a Naval health clinic and I can see newegg and fatwallet. Microcenter, TigerDirect, CompUSA can all be seen from work for me. Just no game related sites but this one and howtopriest.com.

Like I posted in my build thread, I paid $615 for my rig out of pocket...including $55 for a mouse and thermal paste that could have been left off. So, hypothetically $560 on necessary parts (not including GPU, I traded my old rig for the new video card). The value of the entire build before discounts, shipping costs, or promo codes is over $1,000 ($1046 to be exact). So, careful planning, research, and selling/trading old parts definitely has benefits.

Let's just say I work in a special place on Offutt. I can't access a lot of website. I'm surprised I can still get here
