The EX470 and EX495 can hold the same amount of storage space including external drives etc.. correct?
Newegg informed me they will be getting more EX47X series in.
If Newegg has a deal for $229 on the 470 again that would be great. Server and PCH for under $500. Plus BD drive for ripping and Any DVD HD software would still all be cheaper then buying the EX495. Think I might be set if I go that route.
What you guys think?
These prices are really good for the EX47x series. I paid over $500 for mine a year ago and now they already have a 3rd generation?
If anyone gets the 47x series and plans on upgrading the CPU, I have an unopened retail LE-1620 CPU. When I did my upgrade of my EX47x series I bought this from Newegg because they didn't hav ethe LE-1640 instock. but the next day they got the LE-1640 instock so I ordered that one and replaced the stock CPU. So I never did anything with the retail, unopened LE-1620.
If anyone is interested in buying it just PM me.
I had completely forgot about it until I read this thread.
