  1. So instead of going for my usual "upgrade a few basic things" this year, I've decided that I'm going to do a total system overhaul since I should be getting a job within the next month.

    Here's a list of everything I'm looking to buy by the end of the year:

    Mobo: ASUS M5A99X EVO
    CPU: AMD FX-6200 Zambezi 3.8GHz
    GPU: XFX Radeon HD 7870
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3

    Total Cost: ~$622 before shipping

    I try to keep up with benchmarks and reviews, but I figured it would be a good idea to gather suggestions/input since some people here, *cough* huy *cough*, are more up-to-date with what's good on the market.

    So, post your suggestions if you have any. I'd prefer to stay around the original cost though.

      So now I'm in need of some decision-making assistance.

      I got an email from NewEgg notifying me that I can get this motherboard for a mere $85 from 9am PT to 3pm PT. The only con I can see is the fact that it's a Z68 (and not a Z77,) and it has PCI-E 2.0.

      I think that it's a great deal (almost $200 off,) but I'm trying to make sure the board will be as good or better than the ASUS I was going to buy before.

      Nevermind, the board isn't compatible with an Ivy Bridge CPU.

      After a month of work and some Christmas money:

      I'll post a new topic in a few days with more pictures, benchmarks and other stuff.
