    4770k for $199.99 AT MC, 3 days only

    I have the 4770k and Gigabyte UD4H sitting here unopened. Even at this price, I'm not sure if the upgrade is worth it over my 3570k and UD5H.

    XFX 7970 Core Edition OC'ing

    I feel bad for you man. What's your voltage at? I'm running 1200/1600 (1190mV) on my windforce.

    WoW: Mists of Pandaria releasing September 25

    Obviously, Blizzard takes note of their demographics. http://www.quantcast.com/www.battle.net I've already had to put up with space squids...now pandas? Ugh.

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Received my Shimian Lite perfect pixel from Red Cap a couple days ago. I have one dead pixel and some major backlight bleed coming from the bottom left corner. I'm really hoping the photos I sent him are convincing enough to send me a replacement.

    Gigabyte GTX 680 $260 from Amazon Warehouse *DEAD*

    I thought my Gigabyte Windforce 7970 was a steal at $340. $260 for a 680 is insane.

    Can't decide which processor for Gaming/Editing...

    After much research, I've decided to go with this. I work in entertainment, but not on the production side. I'm learning Avid/Pro Tools to increase my skill set. I can deal with a few additional seconds/minutes. In no way am I hardcore enough to justify a 2011 setup. Thanks everyone for...

    3930K or 3770K rig?

    Hmm weird...I'm heading to MC today. Hopefully the register works in my favor too :) I had an acquaintance that was willing to help me with the intel deal until he found out they required pay stub verification (worried about losing his job lol). Anyways, if you can sell off your 3770k and...

    Back to my original question...is there a REAL WORLD performance difference between the i5 and i7?

    Can't decide which processor for Gaming/Editing...

    I was thinking about that... I would like to stick with newer tech since this is the first build I've done in awhile (been using a laptop). Dumb reason, I know.

    Can't decide which processor for Gaming/Editing...

    I know the obvious answer is 3770k...but I'm having a hard time justifying the $150 premium over the 3570k (will be purchasing at Microcenter). Programs I will be using to edit: Pro Tools Avid Photoshop Lightroom I don't care how it performs in a benchmark. What I care about is REAL...

    Open Box PSU...

    M1SII 620W...don't care for SLI so this should be more than plenty.

    Open Box PSU...

    This. The 5 year warranty is serial based. I doubt the item is more than a month old.

    Open Box PSU...

    Would you buy a open box Seasonic in "like new" condition? Is it worth it to take a risk for $15 off the normal price?
