There's the PC I'm planning to do. I can't get rid of the cooler since the i7 I already have didn't come with one.

Also the motherboard has bent pins and I gotta keep the GT 520 for now. Could you make it cheaper without completely ignoring the PSU?

 

So what should I do? Save for this computer or just save for a OnePlus X? I will be using the X as an iPod touch-like device.

I really want a PC, especially so I can save up then get something like an R9 285 but eh

"need" vs "want"

what kind of use does "ipod touch-like" mean? clash of clans and such and music? because you can buy a cheaper phone for that..

Do you have a phone/iPod?

if yes, get the PC...

 

if not, get the phone. But honestly, I'd save my pennies.

The PC. And save for a nicer PSU and graphics card... (7770s are super-cheap on eBay at least...)
