I saw this PC build for $1500 on youtube. As of right now it would run me around $1150. Is this as beastly as the video makes it sound? Could I get more bang for my buck with a different build?
heh. the envy of many a PC builder...... i hate you.
kidding aside, again, it's a good build. the fact that you got a discount on that 4670K and you don't have to pay & wait for shipping makes it a good deal. feel free to stick with the cooler you went with, or maybe a Noctua NH-D14 if you got around $80 to spare on it.
the PSU though, i got to tell you not a whole lot of good Thermaltake PSU out there. and considering your budget, you'd be able to afford a more quality PSU from Seasonic, Antec or Corsair (except for the CX & GS series). basically get a tier 2 at most; http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
