    SSDs Favs- Kingston, Samsung and for tight budgets PNY and MX100. Not a fan of Mushkin lately. Check out the EMtec SSD review we just published today. Surprisingly better than expected.

    I own a 750ti and it is a decent entry level GPU. It does suck up less power but the R9 270 is faster because of the 256bit bus. Moving up to a R9 270x model will put you closer to the performance of a GTX 760. The difference between the 270 and 270x on paper is indistinguishable. Many just get the 270 and overclock to match the speed of a 270x because everything is the same. AMD just turned down the power draw. honestly the better comparison would be a 750ti to a 260x but if the price of the 750ti and 270/270x are too close then the final call is More performance/close to silent(tweaked) or less power draw/silent. From personal experience of using and testing both I prefer the 270 models(basically a HD7950).

    LED can be found here. Just use a simple pre wired LED to replace what is already there. Depending on the ends you can need to alter them.(steal the connector from the stock LEDs) Pre-Wired LEDs - LED Devices - Lighting

    I will try to get Vinny in here to help with the case questions as he did the review. *** Sorry that was Mike that handled the Azza Z review

    Sorry, Just seeing this post now.

    most have already mentioned what I would say, so I won't repeat it all again.
    But, I will say that Kingston, Crucial, and Intel are normally my go to SSD brands.

    I don't really use anything else unless I find one for a good deal, but as of lately, there has been so many good deals that I've been tempted to try brand I normally would not buy.

    LED's, I typically go to Radio shack or frys to get the 5v LEDs, they tend to have a longer life and more brighter.

    Good luck on the build, look forward to see what you do to it.

    That was perfect! I'm glad my thread could bring out some comedy. High five on that one.

    Also, thanks a ton for that link. The molex double LED one is a perfect replacement. That will make it super easy... and since I won't have to cut apart the original, I may be able to find a place to put it in the green case for extra LED goodness.

    As for the GPU, if the 750ti is still available for $100 when I place my orders, I will likely go for that. (Heck, for that price I could even put another $20 or so of my budget into a couple of steps higher CPU.) But, at retail prices for both I'll most likely go with a 270. *sigh* Can't wait to get the money in hand and start ordering.

    I know exactly what you mean. Since I finished my cooling loop, I desperately want to build something else! I upgraded my Media Server the other week with 5 New 2TB Drives and rebuilt my ZFS array, but that was just kinda boring. I want to BUILD something...new<sigh>... Maybe next month.

    So...I think I'd find the 270 you want, on PCPartpicker, set up a price watch, and then order that last. You can build and test everything with the on-board video, and then pop for the 270 when it's on sale... I Love that price watching thing. I saw the Crucial MX100 512GB on there for $183.99 shipped today. It was all I could do to not click on the "Buy" button....<sigh>

    I think I'm going to have to push the guy at work to let me get started on his build. Not as much fun as building for me or my kids, but what the heck.

    You got the building itch. This hobby is addictive as heck. I have a couple of projects in the works and I can not wait to get started. Hopefully one will get done this weekend. We gave away a complete Gaming System as the Grand prize during the Winter Giveaway. I am sure the winner is antsy as hell and sending mental urges to hurry the hell up! lol

    Perf PC and FrozenCPU are some of the best places to grab the other things you need for a killer rig. Newegg is my main place for major parts.

    I like ModDIY (modDIY | PC Modding, Case Mods, Modular Cables, PC Mod Supplies) too for custom cables (because I'm too lazy to make my own), shipping is killer (slow AND expensive) because they are in Hong Kong, but I've been very pleased with their cables. They built me a whole bunch of custom cables for my Seasonic PSU, and I just recently ordered some cables from them as a result of my recent loop upgrade to clean up a few Molex and SATA connections.

    Sorry about ignoring the question. I overlooked it somehow... probably because it was end of a page.

    Anyway, I live about 50 miles or so from the nearest MicroCenter, but it's only a few miles from where my mom lives. If I ever needed anything from them she could pick up my order and bring it me on her next visit.

    Well, since I've pretty much picked out every single part I need for my build (aside from stuff I won't be able to determine until parts are in hand), I'll get back to obsessing over the tiny details. I realized this morning that I hadn't picked out a handle to mount to the top of the system for carrying. *goes back to scouring through hundreds of handles to figure out which ones might match the case*

    Well...in that case... Make sure you watch MicroCenter's prices on CPU & MB Combos. They usually have the best prices on Intel CPU's, and their combo deals are crazy awesome. I looked the other day, and they don't have any combo deals going right now, but when they do..._IF_ they have your MB in stock, the combo deal is unbeatable. They even let you combine Open Box items with a CPU and still get the combo deal. That's how I got my MSI MPOWER Z87 Board and i7-4770K at what I thought was a ridiculous price.

    Scott

    ***Edit*** I was incorrect MicroCenter does have some bundles this week: http://www.microcenter.com/site/bran...r-bundles.aspx Sadly though, I'm not seeing a mini-ITX board.

    I pretty much use the same places just lost track of Perf PC and FrozenCPU for a while but they have all kinds of great gear for pretty much anything you want to do! So now that you refreshed my memory Ill be checking them out I need a couple of front bay devices , Got some LED,s on hand but I saw some already that would make the job easier! Im like most everyone here its addictive to uograde and do a new build!!! LOL Very addictive but I rather be addicted to this than CRACK!!!! As far as Newegg I use them almost religiously has a lot to do with LIMITED FUNDS but if your patient and watch there sales or have them email you there sales you can seriously get some good deals! Love it when I see a killer deal, and unless your just Stupid LOL its hard to walk away from that kinda deal! So I start rearraging my bills and fix it the next month!! Bought a Crucial SSD recently and saved close to half price and Im definatly impressed with the performance! Now I have got my eyes on the Phanteks Enthoo LUX and trying to decide if Im going to pick it up, the only thing I miss on it is I prefer a case with 4 to 5 5.25 external bays but well see and then decide on Black or White!

    Crap! I just realized something discouraging. I'm building two of these rigs using the same parts for each. Most of the items I'm buying have a rebate. Some of you probably already know where I'm going with this, but it took me weeks to think of it. All of those except the monitor have a "Limit 1 per household" on the rebate. *sigh* Things just got a lot more complicated.

    Yeah. Hmm. Best suggestion I have, is to set up your pricing filters on PCPartPicker or PriceGrabber, or whatever engine suits you, and buy the parts when you can get them on non-rebate sales. Or do the newegg shopping cart trick described in the Monitor thread. That might work too.
