Our friends at NCIX and Newegg have created some great deals to help make this build your own for a little less cash!
Newegg has put together a SuperCombo based on the same ASRock H110M-DGS motherboard and XFX Radeon RX 480 used in the build video. They swapped out the HDD for a Seagate model and the PSU for a Cooler Master 550W, but otherwise kept the parts shown in the video. The bundle trims the price of the build by $25 compared to what we were able to get at the time of building.
NCIX is offering a bundle for both our US and Canadian users. The bundle, while still following the guide, offers a few changes from the components used in the video by selecting the Gigabyte GA-H110M-A motherboard, 650W Cooler Master PSU and an Intel SSD. After the bundle discount, the total price is within a few dollars of the build shown in the video. For more details, check out the bundles at NCIX Canada and NCIX US.
A big thanks to NCIX and Newegg for making these deals available!
