  1. ^ If you will be overclocking, then get a better CPU cooler
    CM Hyper 212+ will be a very good option...or Sunbeam CCTF

    A case with better airflow might be good...somthing like Antec 200/ Antec 300...

    What about the CM 690?

    And the CPU cooler are these good enough?

  3. ^ Yes that case very good airflow and is very roomy too...

    As for the CPU cooler, Yes those are also good, but the CM Hyper 212+ is better value...

    thanks..
    anything else?
  5. Just noticed the monitor...such low resolution one ? The HD 5770 would be an overkill for that resolution...get a higher resolution monitor...atleast 1440X900 or above...

    It's a temporary choice.. waiting for the 20'' version of it to come out..
  7. Oh...Ok...
    Just make sure you get a high resolution monitor to take full advantage of that setup...
