STill a cheap bastard

 

 


 

 

Anyway, just bought almost all the parts for my brothers new computer except for the RAM. The good priced promo ones ran out of stock.

 

Part list

 

 Zalman Z5 Case 

 AMD FX 6300 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Six Core CPU

ASUS AM3+ Motherboard M5A78L-M LX PLUS

128GB Vertex 450 SSD

1TB WD Blue 7200rpm HDD

XFX Core Edition Pro 550W PSU (its on OCN rec list as well)

ASUS DVD DRIVE.

ATi 5770 1GB GDDR5 128bit

 

Only thing I'm missing is that stupid RAM I haven't bought yet.

 

Oh right. Total of the entire list you see above was $337. 

 

I went HARD on rebates, promos, instant savings. 

 

My univ(and most) offer free Windows iso's so that's covered.

Think you can get my friend Win8 for free? Lol. So my friend (the PC build one) decided to go mini-ITX. Would a CM GeminII S524 be good? (I plan on doing that cheap one-click OC'ing that MSI boards have.) Using an AMD Athlon X4 750K.

I still don't know if it's 1 key per person. If it's say 10 keys per person, I'd gladly give other people my keys. If not, meh.

Wait, so we have infinite, or at least a lot of copies?

 

Not sure how UCONN works.

The key for my school are the business style keys and activation style. 

 

It's the MAK key or the MULTIPLE ACTIVATION KEY that uses the KMS service.

 

So yeah, its one key but you have to activate it 'differently' using the command prompt.

 

Yeah, not sure if Uconn is the same. I cold get my Microsoft OS from them but meh. 

 

The only way I can access, download, or see any software documentation from VT is if I use a VPN to my school. So yeah, they are overly protective

Ramifications? I know what they are in general, but I don't get it.

EVERY page you enter and on every page it tells you about illegal usage etc etc

 

The top right corner of every portion of the software page has a warning about illegal usage and every code has an agreement legal policy about usage of these keys.

No, I mean they don't list what type of key it is, as far as I know.

...I think you may be talking about a volume key, in which case, I am jealous of just what you can get at your fancy private colleges.  God damn CUNY, not having any licenses or laptops (for most) to give.  Hell, my high school's gonna start handing iPads to freshmen next year. DX

If you activate out of campus, there will eventually be an issue with Microsoft.  (experience)
 

In Amman, I called Microsoft and they gave me a free Office 2010 key haha.  (Said I was tired of using Pirated version)
