    Are the parts made of Nazi gold that they're so rare?

    He doesn't want our feedback to affect his judgement.

    I'm fine with feedback it's just I saved 30 by getting the last Asus 760 ITX GPU Aria had. The price on Amazon is 220 even though pcpartpicker says it's not. I also saved 11 on the RAM of which the price has went up already.

    So yeah, this is what the computer nerd of Dtoid Forums would buy with his money:

    Still waiting on a few things to be dispatched but I don't need things to arrive until next week anyway. Cool thing about the courier service DPD is you can quickly update them which day you want mail to arrive. I've chosen everything from them to arrive on the same day so I hope it's all in the same van.

    ATX is for fat chumps. I'm going mini ITX. Cooling is Noctua, details in the pcpartpicker link.

    And that gif is so old.

    Just saying, friend: ITX chassis' have a tendency to turn into easy bake ovens unless you cut the slack out of the wiring and add additional fans to maintain overpressure.

    Sent from Duga-3 using TPtalk.

    Lian Li are smart with the cooling setup. With the Noctua CPU cooler, the Asus cooler and a gold Silverstone psu it should be manageable. The CPU is pretty low powered with only 80 watts too.

    That's the first I've heard of a Xeon. In all the recent builds I've seen(since I started looking) it's always been a i3, i5, or i7. Tell me about the Xeon.

    It's like an i7 but without the integrated graphics and no overclocking potential but at a price you'd expect from an i5. I'm personally getting it for hyperthreading and the 8MB L3 cache which makes me happy in very nerdy ways.

    For gaming only the i5 is more value for money still. But if gaming price/performance is your only need the AMD CPUs are probably better value for money anyway.

    Do you guys recommend any free malware / virus protection programs? I ran out of the free MicroTrend protection that came with my OS. I know it probably didn't do too much for me anyway, but just figured I'd ask if there's something out there you guys use. Thanks.

    I don't even download jpegs on my new PC, lol. 2 scared 2 hurt my baby.

    MS Security Essentials is pretty good. Never thought I would ever recommend a Microsoft product but it gets the job done. Never had a virus for the last 3-4 years.

    It's called common sense, don't press setup.exe too often or from weird sources, don't just accept unsigned java applets, don't listen to reddit or 4chan and you'll be all set.

    Also Jpegs are reasonably safe, the buffer overrun technique to inject code has been patched out ages ago.

    To break it down to an even easier formula: use your common sense. Seriously. That's pretty much all it needs.
    And if you don't know enough about the machine you are working with: educate yourself. It's not hard to understand enough basics to be pretty safe on the internet.
