I donno how much of a difference it is, but the HX650W is a new model, modular as well, comes with a 2 year longer warrenty I believe (7 vs 5) and is also a bit more efficient (80 plus bronze). You can probably get one for around $20 more, although I don't know if it would be worth it, especially after you add in shipping (Assuming you pricematch and buy it from nxic with your other stuff, donno if local places pricematch)

Where the hell are you getting Thermaltake Thunderblades for $15? I don't mean to thread crap but they're a ripoff at that price.

Best not to buy parts until you have all the money for a complete system. Prices always drop and your complete cost of ownership will be less by waiting....

Or, while the money builds up someone might have a suprise sale on the TX750 for 50% off or something like that.

Wouldn't be all that nice to own a PSU that you could have bought later for much less that you haven't even used yet.

Not only that, but unless you got a system to test the components on when you get them, it could be a headache down the line if something has to RMA'd and you've had it sitting in your house for a couple months.

Well, i hope he's reading this. But in any case case prices and PSU prices tend to go up, so i urged him just to grab the best deal he can.
Also as for the fans @ $15, i told him already, he just really likes the LED (TOOL), and it's $15 at memoryexpress.

Lol, how is he going to gain any money if he doesn't have a job. I can't see this build going too far.

And Mem Express does price match BTW.

They don't match instant rebates or sales though. Just regular prices.

Well i actually have a job, i am just very lazy to call in for shifts and working it. i work like once or twice a month rofl. thats why i am stretching out this pc build over a long period of time.

Cons: waiting for sales, waiting till the pc is actually done.
Pros:saving money on sales possibility.(guess thats all i got for pros)

Oh lol. You should just build a budget AMD rig in that case. And last time I went to Memory Express they price matched NCIX's sale price on the WD black 1TB and they also PM'ed a sugo SG02 (or something like that) with no hassles. I just said goto Shopbot - Compare prices - Canada - Price Comparison - Comparison Shopping and type in the products and they matched it.
