(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-06-02 16:53 EDT-0400) How will this thing run on a 1920x1080 screen? I plan on using it to game, surf the Internet, and do school work. Are there anything coming out soon that I should wait for? Any changes I should make? Thanks!

Like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 eVO. Reply to ksham m 0 l Outlander_04 a b 4 Gaming June 2, 2013 2:10:43 PM Good build but why 2 hard drives and why does one cost less than the other?

When making the build I bundled the hard drive and case I think, but accidentally left the original hard drive on their. So, build is good, but you guys recommend a CPU cooler? Any ideas how this thing will run with one monitor? Reply to JustinB0521 m 0 l ksham a b 4 Gaming June 2, 2013 10:56:31 PM Depends on what games and quality you play.

Intel Core in some games can add bonus 40+ FPS, which u wouldn't be able to get with an AMD procesor.
