With the new year fast approaching, I picked this up this sweet deal from Newegg.com. I first saw this amazing combo deal from my buddy JohhnyTheGeek and after a few seconds of debating and making sure I still have money to buy food and gas for the week, I decided to buy it. Although I may not be eating until I get paid on Friday, I figured in the end it would be worth it.
I was excited to get this motherboard and ram combo for a couple reasons:
1. I haven’t built an AMD system in a very long time
2. $60 for any CPU, motherboard and ram combo is great
I have no idea what the final product will be, it is between a few things I’ve seen and been planning so most likely it will be a combination of the following:
Picture Frame PC
Fish Tank + Mineral Oil HTPC
What should have been $120 came out to only $65 after tax and shipping. I received $10 off the motherboard and processor and they threw in the 8GB of DDR3 Ram for free.
So basically, I will be building some sort of custom/interestingly shaped computer that uses some sort of unconventional cooling method. But who knows? I may still do something COMPLETELY ORDINARY installing it into a HTPC case and use it for the occasional streaming of movies in my room.
I should be attempting some type of annoucement video or unboxing video; the point is there should be a video featuring this AMD setup before the end of the year.
