Hello guys. I've been planning on buying a new PC and now i finally have the money to actually purchase it. I already have all the parts picked out, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything i've missed as far as compatibility/upgrades since this list was put together a few months ago. Thanks in advance.
Budget Range : 1200ish. Lower is always better.
Parts not Required : Mouse, Monitor, Keyboard, Speakers, etc. I'm building just the tower.
Overclocking : Yes. I wanted to OC the i7 to 3.2. I've never OC'ed a machine before either so this would be my first.
I forgot to mention that I plan on buying a TRUE 120 Heatsink for the i7; just the regular version, not the black or all copper. I was wondering if there were any issues with mounting this in a vertical case. I just wouldn't want there to be any issues a few years down the line as far as gravity taking its toll on it.
My main uses would most likely be gaming and media. I don't feel like i'd have to run anything at ridiculous resolutions. I'd only want to go SLI/Crossfire if I came across a game that really required it, but i doubt that would happen.
