Hello. I recently want to build one because browse thru few place it seem kind expensive . I try to keep it around $1000usd. I think that i will stay with win7, and not sure about overclock. the case i choose is CM HAF XB EVO. will these part fit in it? if not recommend any case (take air from side and bot and rear in and release out on top of case). As for hard drive i got 2 on hand already.

I confuse on thermal compound/paste. Is it require to apply???

OH Forgot. Is it possible to survive the next 4 yrs of game ( most play offline game) and some like LOL Smite some steam fps Might play Battlefield

you would be better off, gaming wise, with the i5. also, gaming wise, you would be better off cutting costs on the motherboard and the overkill 850w power supply (would only recommend that for sli) and try to slip a 780 in there

will give you the best results for an AMD build. that 8320 can match the 8350 and beyond once overclocked. DVD drives are pointless unless you like to rip DVD's but you can install the OS with a usb stick and games are usually downloaded
