I'd go for batuchka's path on the cpu 250 is more powerful, but 5670 is more futureproof with dx11 etc seagate 7200.12 and samsung f3 are both great hd's, f3 is marginally better. not too sure about the case choice in batuchka's build batuchka June 17, 2010 9:10:06 PM Well with DX11 the HD 5670 comes to a crawl and that HEC Blitz is a slightly cut down version of Rosewill Destroyer but still has great cooling options for the $$ especially since price cuts hehe Can't find your answer ?
