^^ You probably have to claim just the damaged components.

If you are able to file do not write just a price, it will be much easier to get money back if you are as detailed as possible. Assuming your PC is several years old most of the parts probably won't even be available. List the exact item name if you can with the price you would've paid when you bought it new. If it is something general then write "high end PC gaming RAM 16 GB - 100$", etc.

Is a GTX 1060 with 6 GB of memory for $200 or less too much to ask for?

So as folks are upgrading their systems, I am in the market for fairly modern hardware to update my 2008-era desktop.

new build is done. should last another 5 years like the last.

ryzen 7 1700X @4.1ghz (ended up being cheaper than the 1700 with the bundle at microcenter)
asrock taichi
gskill ripjaws V 32gb 3200mhz
intel 600p 512gb nvme
1080ti armor oc @1900mhz
lg 27" 4k

everything else I reused from my old machine

and unfortunately, I had to switch from my coolermaster nepton 240m to a corsair h110i gt because it's in violation of a patent and won't be getting an AM4 adapter :-\

cost?

600p was ~$135
board was $85 after rebate/bundle
cpu was $369
gpu was $720
ram was $240
new water cooler was $125
monitor was $330

So $2000. The psu, case, and soundcard are probably about $300 worth and then I have 3 other older SSDs in it.

I'm selling my 970gtx, nepton 240m, and 8150/16gb ddr3/m5a97 evo (PM if interested) for probably about $400 so I figure about a 1600 net before tax. I wasn't planning on a monitor, but my old monitor had other ideas..

Alright it was time to retire my i7-950@3.8ghz that I've been using since 2010.

Picked up a i7-7700k, 16GB of ddr4, and an Asus Rog Strix for ~$615 from Micro Center last night.

Was able to re-use everything else (case, psu, noctua nh-d14 cooler, ssd, and oc'd 980 ti).

Stock 4.2gz turbo 4.5gz.

When are these Monopoly money miners going to stop driving the price on video cards up?

I was going to build a PC this spring but decided wait on the Vega cards to compare them. Should have just built it then.

^^^That's not a bad deal. Although the i7-7700 is $289 right now. I got the k version for $299. With how super easy it is to OC the newer chips it's a shame not to get the unlocked version.

Since I can't get a mid range card for a decent price I figured screw it I'll go high end. Any glaring weaknesses or bottlenecks in this? I don't need a PSU or a large storage HDD because I have them already.

Also can't seem to make my wish list public.

if you're building a new machine, there's absolutely no reason to buy a sata ssd. go nvme for the same money and 300+% performance.

[Edited on August 23, 2017 at 8:35 AM. Reason : also, that card is THREE slots for not any perf improvement over any of the other non-FE Tis]

Good call on the SSD. Never used nvme so wasn't familiar with it.

As for the card, does it taking 3 slots matter if I'm not planning on SLI? I guess I could future proof just in case.

case airflow and if you plan on using a pcie slot in the future for more nvme disks or maybe a sound or capture card.

it looks like the prices on everything are fucked due to miners, as the card I bought 7 months ago is now $50 more than I paid so that might be a decent deal. I'd just get the cheapest with 2 or 3 fans and a back plate

i have that case and love it, it's so quiet


it doesn't look like you would lose pcie slots with the way they are laid out on that motherboard. i wouldn't worry too much about airflow, that case lets you add fans all over it

it looks like he'd lose his pcie-1x slot in the middle. that's what my SBZ is connected to. probably a non-issue since you have another, but why lose a slot if you don't have to?

Yeah I switched it out to a thinner one that's also $10 cheaper. I doubt the space will ever be an issue but better to have extra space and never need it than need it and not have it.
