Additional Comments: I would like to have a quite, fast, gaming computer that will last a good couple years.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current desktop can't run any of the games that I want too ( titanfall, payday 2, call of duty, and battlefield 4). Also, I would like this build to last 2-5 years.
Two possible changes with both.
-Wouldn't it be better if he got one stick of 8gb instead of 2x4gb? that way the 8gb will allow for upgradeability later on? I don't mean to start an argument...This is just a question.
-Also, if over clocking is still a maybe, I would use the money from those coolers and put it into something else. (maybe a nicer case thats silent. Like this fractal r4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... )
the cpu will be great atm and won't need any over clocking to get the job done. Later when you want to over clock you can spend more money on better cooling.
