    Is it okay for me to ask how much your build was ? :p I remembered when I did my build it was around 400$
    Sure... but the thing to remember is some of these parts are from 2010.

    In 2010, I bought this (as far as I can remember...)

    Case (CoolerMaster HAF 932) ~ $169 USD IIRC
    CPU (i7 920) ~ $269 USD IIRC
    Motherboard (EVGA X58 SLI LE) ~ $189 USD IIRC

    Then all the new upgrade stuff recently (2016)

    RAM (8GB Corsair Vengeance) FREE.. Was given to me by my friend (probably would cost $150 back then)

    Video Card (EVGA GTX 970 4GB) on sale: $329.00
    Samsung SSD (250GB) on sale: :$95.00
    HDD (WD3TB blue) on sale $99.00
    PSU (Corsair 850w) on sale: $139.00


    So add it all up and this is a little over a $1400 gaming build.

    Wait.... The display! I'm still running 1080p (no 4K displays yet here at the EDRo's house!)

    But I do have a nice 27" AOC 1080p LED display with a 2ms response time! I love it and to me.. 1080p (1920x1080) is perfectly fine for my eyes....

    I think I paid about $289-$300 for this one.

    So add the display, plus the peripherals (keyboard, mouse, game controllers, headsets, cameras, USB devices etc. and you'll have a gaming System with $1700-$2000 into it. Or more...

    Wow I got 600$ lined up and saving (been saving for a while for about 2 years ) look like I might not spend as much as you . I am going to keep my tower ( atx size case) and 2 21" 1080p monitors. What I am going to replace is my mobo, cpu( using a core 2 quad Q8200s ATM ) ram , and graphics card. I want to start building my rig after I get done with this semester

    Yes, even those can be found for less than $400. You just have to look and act fast.

    Actually I discovered that he is mainly the manager still due to a last resort. They sort of need him, but the general manager basically acknowledged his attitude(he got four customer complaints this week....not about the store but about that maanger in general) but as it stands they are in dire needs of the manager that they sort of have to keep him.

    So enter Me...I am simply planning to outdo him so I be a candidate. AS it stands, I am good at most of the skills, I am just slower in areas(still learning) but I am able to keep up with the slowest pro at the moment which is good enough or now.

    I'm quiting alcohol as of now. Did a most stupid thing last night. ****. I was sick as hell, still am, and yet i had a few drinks to which my body didn't respond very well. I tell you, Ibuprofen and alcohol, don't go together.

    Even though i was stupid as night, i can't say the gig was bad, as a matter fact it was awesome. Maybe top 5 i've attended.
    It was two guys from different Ex Yu bands, one with the guitar and the second one with wicked voice. I'll post a video a bit later.

    My GF wants to get the new iPhone SE as her upgrade from her aging 5S. I'm telling her she should get the 6S instead because:

    A: No 3D Touch
    B: No 2nd gen Touch ID
    C: No sexy 6/6S styling (she says she likes this older 5S/SE style champhered edge design)
    D: Because I said so, and what I say is always right lol (only I know what she wants! She does NOT know what she wants lol)

    Hey Ed,

    If your GF prefers a smaller phone, you won't win this argument.
