Please critique my planned build! Tags: Products Keyserchief September 10, 2012 8:02:13 PM I'm putting a gaming PC build together and I would really appreciate some feedback on my choice of components. I do NOT intend to mess around with overclocking atm (that's my reason for going with the 3570 over the 3570K). Thanks!
