Also would like to thank Tony. Spent more at Amazon than Steam. Hope you're not like me in that I get the desire to tip over the desk when I run across computer situations like that.

ALL Internals?


Yep. All 7200 RPM. 2 Hitachi's, 2 Seagates (they are faster). That's not counting my boot drive or scrap drive. I figure by the time I build my next system, SSD's will be large/cheap enough to use those, and then make this system a network backup of that systems drives. My AMD A8-3870K / Radeon HD 6550D DirectX 11 (APU) doesn't choke on much of anything. So it will last quite awhile (awesome at emulating as well). The entire system cost me less than $400.

It's completely sealed air tight with 4 90 CFM fans as output (top rear. bottom rear, 2 top vent), with a heavy duty automobile intake filter mounted to the front bottom, right in front of the hard drives. I added an aftermarket CoolerMaster GeminII S524 to cool the CPU and it hangs over 8GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz DDR3 to cool them as well. For a "budget build" it has left me breathless at moments. The hard drives never see above 80 Degrees Fahrenheit at full tilt. I overclocked the memory to 1800, GPU to 800, and can run the CPU stable at 4.5GHz. (Though at the moment I have everything back to "factory specs" cause I was hard crashing randomly and had to troubleshoot. Turned out to be a failing hard drive (old 500GB Hitachi).

Oh, and I have 13 1TB HDD that are my backups.

Holy Shit. I just bought 2x 3TB internals to add to my 2x 2TB drives that I already have installed for a total of 10TB of storage space. But I'm a frickin' piker compared to you. lol

HTPC + BD.iso = LOTS of storage needed

I can only hope my PC gaming collection in no way approaches my movie collection because there is NO WAY I can afford that much storage. It is kind of shocking to see the size of some of these game downloads, however. I still remember when I got Dragon's Lair for my Amiga 2000 and it was on like 6 or 8 3.5" floppy disks and I was like "damn, this game is HUGE!".

I use 2 wireless xbox controllers to play nba 2k13 no prob. If you wireless you can do 4 controllers on one dongle. If its wired just plug em in and go.


So you have a receiver-thing? I've just been using a wired 360 controller but I have a wireless lying around somewhere

That $5 credit is awesome!!

Well, at the last minutes I jumped on a Paradox package (I love the King Arthur series... already have the first one, so I added the 2nd one and some other stuff.) Then bought the Civ 5 pack for Babylon... Then bought Robin Hood - (Ugh, not what I thought it was... oh well. Maybe I will enjoy it at some point.)

Strongly toyed about getting the Nancy Drew's... but I am going to hold off for a collection price... hint... hint...

Great great job!!!

On hard drive talk, I have a 10 TB NAS, but I build lots of VMs.

My new gaming rig will only have a 256 GB SSD. Just only installing what I am playing.

Tony, another great sale. Looking forward to what you have cooking next.

Yep its called a dongle, you only need one for up to 4 controllers. I rotate the controllers between my xbox and cpu. Only prob is if they are hooked up to the xbox i need to power them on, turn off the xbox and then put the controller on pairing mode.

Tony,

I see Amazon has discounted Warlock 75% off; any chance we can get the same discount on its DLC:

http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B009ETPKFS/
http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B007ZU5GWA/
http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B009CCXYSM/ -- Note the page is incorrect for this, it's displaying the base game and its description not the DLC and its description (which is $3 as opposed to the $20 the base game is)

This.

Dongle butt...heehee

What's the one that you use? Third-party or MS'? or did you buy a 360 Controller for Windows and it came with one?

We chatted about this several weeks ago (actually, I had the same question about the weapons DLC which Amazon doesn't offer). IIRC, someone mentioned that the weapons DLC had a low chance of being released on Amazon at this point because the studio behind the game is effectively dead. I felt better about it not being in the Amazon KoA bundle when some CAGs said the weapons pack really didn't add much to the game. Further, it was mentioned that the two other DLCs were much more important (and part of the pack sold on Amazon).

TL;DR: There's little chance of Amazon offering the Weapons pack DLC. It doesn't add much anyway, and the Teeth of Naros and Legend of Dead Kel are substantial enough. Buy it anyway :)

Ditto. Great sale. Barring any last minute purchases, I limited my spending since I am crazy busy until Christmas anyways. I had a very hard time holding off on XCom and BL2, but I am staying strong.

So awesome to see Amazon killing it in this market. Competition is a great thing for a CAG.

I'm not sure if this was discussed before but does anyone know why my software/video games credit is displaying $19.98? I think I have only purchased 1 qualifying game for the $5 credit. Just wondering what is up with that and if it's a glitch or real for future use.

Thank you for your purchase from Amazon.com. Your purchase entitles you to a $9.99 promotional credit, good towards 25 Runescape Squeel of Fortune Spins.

Okay, that makes more sense. My email thought Amazon was spamming me so I didn't see those emails at first (after having made 2 purchases now and getting 6 emails about promo credits).

Thanks.
