Some of the components I bought could have been much less expensive, but with lower quality. Even though they were more expensive they gave better quality and a better gaming experience.
HD 6850 is good for high quality, but not max settings for graphics. It is ideal for a gamer on a budget. 960 stream processing is good especially for a multi tasking gamer. PCI express 2.1 has better qualities to the older versions such as higher maximum system bus throughput, lower 1/0 pin count, and smaller physical footprint.
The dual core E-450 is very fast and reliable and good for gaming and has higher integrated graphics. The case I thought looked pretty cool and was nice to have dual fans.
I got the best savings for an individual component as you can see here and I was very pleased with how that worked out.
The keyboard and mouse are efficient and sensitive for fast in game reflexes and for such a low price was very helpful for my budgeting. The headset has good sound quality on both input and output and looks rather comfortable to wear.
This was rather cheap for a good quality cooling system for just $13.00. It has a good rotations per minute speed and covers a large area in a small amount of time with 40 cubic feet per minute.
I was very pleased with the savings I was able to find! There were some smaller and less notable savings such as ten dollars off the original prices of the motherboard/CPU and graphics card. By far the best deal was zero shipping costs!! This was really nice because I didn’t have to worry about it at all. These aren’t all my purchases, but rather the more notable ones.
