    Benchmarks: 570 gtx vs 970 gtx w/ Phenom ii x4 945

    Of couse a 6700k will out perform a 2500k, that's a 6th generation i7 and $400! I don't think you read my entire reply and/or missed my point. The 2500k is only a $75 temporary solution and with my current funds it's the best bang for my buck. I also highly doubt it will "be a bottleneck in a...

    Benchmarks: 570 gtx vs 970 gtx w/ Phenom ii x4 945

    I completely agree, however, most of my budget went to the GTX 970. The 2500k is just a temporary solution, however, $150 for a 2500k + z77 is most bang for my buck! Considering there's little improvement over the 2500k for the 3570k or 4670k. I highly doubt it and there's hundreds of reviews...

    Benchmarks: 570 gtx vs 970 gtx w/ Phenom ii x4 945

    I know, I'm way overdue for an upgrade. I recently bought a Zotac GTX 970 and 2500k earlier this week, however, I'm still shopping for a z68 or z77 board for the 2500k. So naturally, I installed the GTX 970 on my phenom x4 945 and ran some benchmarks. The Test: For the testing, I ran the phenom...

    Xbox live 12 month card $19.99 @ Target huge YMMV

    Not true. Ask them to ring both up and the price for the card will not come down. It was a price mistake and I just claimed false advertisement. That's how I got my three cards at two different stores. You must demand to speak with a supervisor because I was refused by the regular employees at...

    Don't wait for the pickup email. Especially if the store you choose for store pickup had both in stock. I placed my order around 5:30am and I picked it up without a pickup confirmation email around 3pm the same day. Read my post on page 2. Bring your order confirmation email, credit card...

    Seagate 1.5 TB Barracuda - $99.99 w/FS @ Amazon

    I love how there is always naysayers about a particular brand whenever a hdd deal is posted. I agree on blaming the user/equipment or bad luck if your having multiplier hdd fails in the same raid. I've used seagate for many years and never had a problem.
