M.A.M.E. PC Purchased!

So I got my usual weekly e-mail from good ol' newegg last week and they had a pretty decent deal in it for a full PC bundle. Needless to say I couldn't resist. Here's what was in the bundle:

- Rosewill RCX-Z940-SL 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail show details

- COOLER MASTER Elite RC-310-OWR460 Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case RS-460-PSAR-J3, Elite 460W Power Supply - Retail show details

- AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor Model ADX245OCGQBOX - Retail show details

- Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3750528AS 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive show details

- CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5C - Retail show details

- ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail show details

- ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM show details

I was wanting to get an HP PC I'd seen on their site earlier, but considering that would have cost me $700+ and the above newegg deal was only $300 I figured losing a little bit of power would give me that much more $ to put towards the control board from www.mameroom.com.

Here's a nice shot of all of the componets, pre-build!

I'm close to having the first big step completed on my M.A.M.E. machine. w00t! I'll have details on the build process in my next post, stay tuned!
