Hey! Awesome advice, many thanks. Told that guy to get stuffed, he wouldn't drop the price.
After selling all my old computer parts and much looking around I've decided to do what Bond007 suggested, kind of. Holding off for Boxing Day then going to grab:
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Socket 1155 Intel Z77 Chipset
Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Socket LGA1155, 3.4Ghz
Intel Core i7-3770K Socket 1155, 3.50Ghz
*Depending on which has the better BD deal, leaning towards i7 as its more future proof and holds better resale value when I upgrade again*
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
8GB of some kick ass ram, which I haven't looked into yet.
Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD
And a beefy 750W 80+ cert PSU, I'll make a shotgun call on BD.
And maybe a BlueRay drive, get the gf to buy me one plus the SSD, shes a dreadful gift giver..
What do you guys think, am I missing something..? If you guys have some input on any of the items I'd be very interested to hear it.
Hopefully, with some sweet deals this shouldn't cost over $500. As you can tell I'm very optimistic on boxing day. :P
