Maybe if I was getting some financial help I would, but IM not, so ill keep dreaming ... keep hitting me up with your idea. s.. I appreciate it.
Well here's my take once more.. Then I'll shut up...
Buying a used system, all fine and good, yes it's cheaper, but..... when it comes to me, looking at Neoscopic's Even Mr. Distubed's... They've changed hands multiple times... (although Mr. Distubed's has a nice clean history, the guys who have owned it, Myself , DaveM, and Mr. Disturbed are part of a self created trade network
I would normally not trust used systems like that.... (except I know this one's history)
Who knows how badly people beat them, OC them, or damage them (besides cosmetic damage)
Not to say I would never buy from somebody on the forums, I do all the time... But if you can, buy new, and always buy from PCtorque... We love these forums, and it's the least we can do for PCT for keeping them up here for us.
You should grab yourself a nice 8790 though... I love mine... And it's not being frivolous (sp?) with money if it's a needed / justifed item... You would do better for yourself (being a student and all) to have the piece of mind of a FRESH warranty, new system, and PCTorque Customer Support! Nothing worse than having your computer die on ya when you need it most...
It's just my ramblings and thoughts on everything said here.... My advise, and final answer... Save that cash, grab an 8790...
