Oh you think I did not already planned to change the GPU?

Oh and I got it from Best Buy. On sale for only 700$.

I would have contested that. Regardless of whether or not the sale was supposed to be over or not, you still placed an order and paid for it, so they should have to honor it. It depends on what their policy is, but still...

You could probably stick with that build for a while. I had a 750ti in my machine until last week and it ran everything just fine. If you do have the extra cash I would recommend getting a 950 or higher to replace it, but if not the 760 will suit you just fine.

Bet they added that $1.10 just for lol's after almost an 840 dollar transaction.

And yes, best buy is always on some shit if you do shopping online. Its different when you go in person but almost every time they don't have shit at the store. They denied my insurance replacement for my Itouch, when it first came out, because the screen cracked and it wouldn't work anymore and they were like nah we can't replace this because it is too damaged, insurance only covers if the sound is not working or the on button doesn't work. I can say the idiot that was assisting me got to know my sailor side and never went to that best buy again. It was $50 dollars for 2 years insurance. Rest in spaghetti never forghetti.

What i'm using right now:

  • Radeon HD 4350
  • i5 650
  • 8GB Memory
  • 500GB Harddrive

I also have a newer laptop but it gets extremely hot if I play games on it.

Best Buy's website isn't all that great. A friend of mine on Rocket Team actually got hired to work on their websites framework and he's mentioned a few times that they have a lot of problems behind the scenes.

And I'm not making it up either like those kids who say ("My uncle works for Gaben, he'll ban you"). Best Buy is a Minnesota Company and I shit you not I know a guy who works on the website.

Also, I cringe at that Dell because dell.... and I fall into the camp of "Thou shalt always build"
