Well actually I talked with Kow, and he helped with finding good deals, he convinced me that it didn't matter what brand it was, it's the fact that it's a kick-ass card and for a good price (especially with that combo deal, holy crap). The CPU is great too, and the final cost even with shipping was too great an offer to pass up. Also, I got back from Micro-center a little while ago, I bought a XION Solaris clear case for only $39.99, and a DVD drive for only $24.99. So actually the final cost (with shipping) is only $727 :eek: I'll post some pics of my case after I get done cleaning out the van.

Well this time instead of thumbing my nose at it for being an AMD/ATI rig, I'm going to just say that this beats the hell out of the value you get out of a console IMO. Not a bad price for a full fledged high end PC gaming rig.

Yeah. I'm not much for AMD/ATI rigs, but that is very cheap for what you've got. A 280 would beat the 4890, but there's no way you'll find it for $200.

Nice rig man!

Man, the 4890 is only $169.99, also since mine should compete rather well with a 280:

Definitely not a bad deal at all :) here's some pics of my case:

Except that link you provided shows the most highly overclocked 4890s against a standard clocked 280...

That's a very nice case. I like all the cable management.

Well the card I'm getting is clocked higher than the atomic edition, so I'll think it will do fine. Plus, I'm getting another one of those same cards later on, so it'll be even better then. Glad you liked my case :)

computernerd Dig it :) Total cost (after MIR): $777.73

Nice!

That's cheaper than what i have into the rig in my sig right now.... And faster. Have fun with OCing that 940 Black Edition! there are times i wish i would have waited another month or two before building my current rig or i would probably be running the same CPU.
