I was advised to get a different cooler and now use the default one.

WIFI

Not sure which wifi adaptor to get. Recommendations? (No online ordering)
I have a laptop actually that has a decent wifi. Can i use it instead to connect it with my new desktop? What would I need? Just a cable?


Buying all the components tomorrow. Please reply, thanks.

Your graphics card is kinda overkill for that resoloution. Id would go with a 760 and save the money

I also wouldnt trust that power supply the only brands that i would recommend would be xfx seasonic corsair or antec otherwise you risk frying your hardware or just not having the wattage to even run it.

But i need the GPU to render good quality animation graphics.
3D blender can use my GPU and render really fast.

Okay I changed the PSU. But I don't think I'd want to change my graphics card because the better the card the better my 3D animations can be rendered. 3D Blender only uses nvidia card's GPU and it can render really fast :D
