My upgraded PC.

    When my hard-drive first crashed about a month ago i took it to the nearest place which was best buy, they told me it was gonna be fuck lot of cash to restore it, so i said i'll think about it and went surfing around newegg for the items i've been wanting to add for a while just had no money, so i bought a cheap PC from bestbuy that had a good amount of RAM and a not-so-bad quad-core processor. (I also dont give a shit about the restore and i have to think about get a new windows and an AV, tough situation :/)

    This isn't the exact tower, but its pretty close: http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/computer_can_series.do?storeName=computer_store&category=desktops&a1=See+all&v1=series&a2=Top+rated&v2=4.1-5.0&series_name=p7m_series&jumpid=in_R329_prodexp/hhoslp/psg/desktops/All_desktop_series/p7m_series

    So, i'm going to use the same excact tower, but add 1 GTX 560 (i'll add another when i have a little bit more money), a nice 800w psu, new 1 tb hard-drive, and i have my eye on a few nice razer products :razz:, i'll add more, but for now with my birthday coming up, i'm hoping i'll get enough money to add it :grin:


    Total: $380

    I'd like some feedback or some suggestions if possible, its not much but it's a start. :razz: (I always have to think of the fee of taking it to a computer shop and having it add in :/)

    NNot going to have the same exact tower but you're gonna use the same exact tower... That made a lot of sense. A 560 won't fit in that tower and if it does, its going to overheat and have a very short lifespan. 800w for a 560 is beyond overkill

    PS. Excuse me but I'm on my phone and the autocorrect is fucking me up

    Get a better case/tower (There's plenty of good case below $100).

    Instead of getting the current HDD, get this one.

    No it is not, depending on what cpu he has, and if he wants to upgrade to SLI in the future, 800w is about right.

    Also, I couldn't see the list in ur link, so I have no idea really what ur buying beyond the hdd and gfx card.

    He can't SLI with a single PCI-e
