Share J_E_D_70 October 7, 2013 8:22:36 AM Given Haswell's thermal/OC limitations, spending more than $30 on a 212 Evo or Xigmatek Gaia doesn't get you anywhere. Agree it needs an SSD. If this is just for gaming, I'd ditch both HDDs for a 250GB Samsung 840 Evo. If you have a lot of games you just have to available at all times, you can add a single HDD. Are you using both monitors to game or one just for chat/web/other and the other for gaming? Any shooter/driving/sim will look jacked up with your centerline split by an inch of bezel. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
