Alright, thought I might post my build (including monitors, and peripherals), I got depressed when I saw the price and realised that I paid more than this for it (Ayy living outside the US.) I have summer jobs, holidays, birthdays and the "student bonus" or whatever to call it Swedish students get for just going to school, to thank for this setup.
$1000 for the CPU is overpriced, which is how much it costs here in Brazil.
Yet that's not overpriced even by foreigners' standards. It might be slightly above regular pricing (which is still CHEAP), but definitively not overpriced. What is the price that you deem acceptable, just for the record?
So.. I still haven't done anything much since July (lazy me).. I have some of the remaining header cables, peripheral cables, SATA power (have 18AWG wire, connecters, sleeving etc to make up my own custom cables) & data cables as well as fan cables/connectors to go & my system is still sitting on my desk with the sides off & cables everywhere, unchanged from how it was in July.
