Crucial MX100 256GB - 120$ + tax

Today
Gigabyte 280 - 210$ + tax after MIR
EVGA NEX750B - 65$ + tax after MIR
3 Coolmaster 120mm Case fans - 6$ + tax

I declined to go for a 280X by Gigabyte as it was 100$ more and I didn't think it was worth the extra 100$.
I also declined to go for the Fully modular PSU's by Evga as they were between 30-45$ more

Not bad. The 280 is basically a Rebranded 7950 IIRC, and IMO the 280x would have been worth it if found a bit cheaper.

You bought computer stuff..it works? Idk what I'm eating this on. My own personal beliefs are I wouldn't use any of it. Especially if the modular PSU was only 30 more...

You'll see soon.

The PSU I bought is semi modular. It has the main 24 pin wire, the 8 pin wire to the mobo and an 8 pin wire to the GPU. Rest all is modular.

That's how my old one was. It worked and it worked great! It just looked semi off in the case. Either way you'll be pleased with it...7950 isn't a low class card and should bring lots of fun to the table.

Lol they aren't that bad. I sent back a 780 for a 290x and its doing just fine. I can't wait to ditch them as soon as nvidia gets their head out of their rear and supports DP daisy chain.

It's kinda sad that AMD has had this down for years yet nvidia...nada.

All good buys for the price. 280 is a very solid GPU for the price, ignore Nvidiots who just knock AMD. In CPUs Intel may be the clear winner 99% of the time, but AMD and nvidia are still very much in good competition (which in turn is great for the rest of us).

Yea if by competition you mean first and second in a two person race.

Not wasting my time on fanboy comments. Any respectable site backs up what I say.

If you prefer nvidia, good for you, but you're doing people on this board a disservice by repeatedly putting out bad information.
