    I think he is suggesting one of two things. Both of which are naughty. One is more grey-naughty though and that is buying a MSDN key from someone with an MSDN account. They should cost something like $20-30. The other is pure illegal and I won't mention for fear of getting ban hammered.

    I am planning on taking out my laptop's SSD and putting on this computer though.

    Reason I am sticking with AMD FX 6300 is because I don't want to change the Mobo. I have heard good things about the Mobo I have selected with the current build.

    Plus the AMD FX 6300 has received very favorable reviews and it is said to be easily overclock able.

    Not getting a HDD? Also never go with a EVGA version. Whenver you can go with MSI. Their wattage is lower, sound is better but they also perform a little bit better then all the other versions of the same card released. Also, this one is cheaper http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-n7602gd5oc

    I heard EVGA has better quality and their ACX cooling is really good.

    That's why he said it was just him. Rosewill use to make some pretty horrible PSU. They've turned around, but Snow just can't help thinking of those units whenever he see the Rosewill brand.
