Barebones kits are okay at best, 95% of the time. Sometimes the newegg combos are pretty good but most widely distributed barebones kits use terrible cases/PSUs/mobos

Probably better to just post a budget and someone will make you a build. Building your own is cheaper and its a good experience to have under your belt. There are tons of tutorials and informational videos on newegg and youtube.

Any of you used this Rosewill mech? I've been wanting to try one out, but don't have a ton a cash that I want to spend on one right now.

Yeah that's what I've seen from looking at the last few pages. Can you vouch for the quality of Rosewill? I'm a big fan of the simplistic look.

I cant vouch personally for the quality as I dont have any mech keyboards, but Jeff (Oedipus) would be the one to ask on that one. I'm pretty positive he has a mech or two.

A lot of people here have them, including myself. Mine's a Das and I haven't tried a Rosewill.

+3 for blues. Das is the popular mech. Filco is my favorite brand because I like TKL boards. Rosewill is a good mech if you buy from newegg. Since its their house brand, they pretty much replace them if you have issues. Check out WASD keyboards for custom quality mech keyboards...

Ive been looking for a new today gpu and so far I've found a 1gig 570 and a 2 gig 660 both around 230.

Has anyone else found a better deal under 250?
Is there a major difference between a 1 and 2 gig card if I have 8 gigs of ram?

Not exactly $250, but these are great cards (660ti).

Hahah nice. Which model did you get? I'm curious to see what I missed out on. I went with a 680.

You probably wont miss much. I wanted a 680, but I'm already very familiar with AMD and was unsure on the switch. Not due to like fanboyism, but different hardware. I bought the baseline double dissipation model. They have an already OC black edition, but it wont be hard to OC up to that specifications anyway. Just a couple slider moves.

Well, the "best single gpu card on the market" swayed me to the 680, but I'm familiar with Nvidia so likewise it was an easy choice. I was definitely torn between the two though.
