  1. Easier to look at the parts and some of the specs like the wireless card and such if the build is linked to pcpartpicker. Also, what is the build for?
  2. Ill run it through partpicker. The build is mainly a gaming rig with some slight editing in Vegas.
  3. Bump

    added a PC part list.

    Though it is telling me my case does not have USB 3.0 slots on the front unfortunately for the MOBA :(
  4. I changed it a little bit, not cause I was trying to save money, but feel that the MoBo and HDD and such was kind iffy.

    I'd love to say get a different cse too, but in reality that more of a personal choice.
  5. I bought the case before I became more informed with computers. I assume you are recommending the 4670 because it runs cooler and most games dont use hyper threading? Also wouldnt a black be better over a blue as I am using my ssd mainly for windows and a few apps and games.
  6. Black will have faster R/W, and the blue is a bit more reliable. If you plan to just use the HDD for storage, I'd go with Blue not caring for read/write and caring more about longevity.
  7. I am happy you mentioned that blue would be a better option then the velociraptor. I don't mind shelling out cash for quality items but the blue is a lot cheaper and just makes more sense for what I need it for. This is great so far guys any other thoughts?
