on a side note i don't want to do any more of these rebate card things since the money doesn't go directly back to me. they give you a debit card

now microcenter marked down the mobo too, but im not gonna buy it because i don't feel like going in after class tomorrow and buying it. ill buy it next weekend if its still on sale. if not rip doesnt matter

newegg took another $5 off the psu after i bought it. FUCK YOU NEWEGG. gonna try to stay away from them if i can help it their shitty rebate cards piss me off

anyway switching to a more reliable brand of ssd after reading reviews

might go with an AMD card instead because they're sometimes cheaper and have about the same performance

well I'm reading online from guys who know their stuff that AMD and NVIDIA are about the same and technically the R9 3something beats the 960 in performance in the same price category

apparently one difference is that AMD runs hotter and louder but idc about noise

reddit and pc master race bros are biased af towards nvidia and intel products (although it used to swing the opposite way back when i was into that stuff)

wondering if I should get an m.2 because it's $10 cheaper? but apparently nobody has the technology to match the 32gb/s speeds you can get with the m.2 port yet and cheaper m.2s seem to be less reliable so idk
