Yeah, but the I/O's of the 'small' read and writes could be faster still

But meh, I got my SSD for much less than the competitors. I would be a bit mad if I paid full price for this SSD as then I basically bought one of the fastest 120GB's and forked money for it but could have basically gotten a slower OCZ etc etc.

 

Anyway, SOOOOOOO much fast right now. In terms of daily operations, its about the same as my desky. (I know this is a noob comparison, that has no bounds but humour me) Which is about right as opening small programs really doesn't take much. The CPU was never the bottleneck. I saw that, and knew it was my RAM and HDD....well, now I have 8GB 3rd party RAM and a Sammy SSD :D

TD has been the worst at rebates in terms of them giving Total Defense so much prime time on their site.

They are part of a bundle. I split the total value evenly to each of the items.
I feel like the PSU might explode...I really don't know it it's good. Any advice?

It doesn't seem worth it.

 

I just did a rough estimate cost and the bundle seems to be more expensive by about $50 or more

Whoa that's cheap. Half decent PC too. And cheap enough to add a little more to. Though some of the stuff is really just junk... like the CPU cooler... stock cooler would probably be better. Just a way to jack the price up.

Rebates suck >.>
 

1 - Keep an eye on Lenovo outlet

2 - Score

3 - Profit?

Give me a price, and wait patiently ;)

Ti-84's are ancient stuff. All surpassed now by the TI-89 Titanium and CAS calculators.

$80 CPU that can have better deal. AMD 8xxx CPU was on sale for same price and is magnitudes better during BF

$50 Mobo.

$15 DVD R/W

4GB RAM? It's the same price as 8GB RAM, so why pay $50 for it when you can get an 8GB from a better company

$10 Cooler 

$35 1TB HDD

$30 Case (

$270

 

You can get better parts, and self choose your case, RAM, CPU etc.

 

Considering you have to go through a rebate, I wouldn't say its a good deal

I bought my 500gb WD blue for $70 way back when all the factories sweatshops were flooded :mad:
