After cashing my paychecks, filling up the gas tank, taking a bit out for the wallet over the next seven days + the $250 I have to Amazon, I have about $1200 to play with.
Working on getting another job or two as well. Probably going to wait until the middle of May/end of May to get this sh*t though because of school.
personally, I'd look to order all my sh*t from Amazon. If you get anything defective, Amazon won't charge you to ship it back, they'll even cross ship you a replacement immediately, they normally have about the same price compared to Newegg or even lower. Just keep your boxes until your set up is all done and working. IDK about Newegg, they may have changed their ways, but when I ordered my parts for my first build their return process was a bi*ch, you gotta fork over money to mail it back, and then they'd check and see if it was truly defective and then refund you so you can re-order the product.
