Hey - first time builder, sorry for any silly choices or questions. I'm looking at the following parts, and I'm looking for any feedback on compatibility or even just better ideas for the components. Trying not to go above the budget set by these choices.
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
If you're not going to OC, you can save the money on an aftermarket cpu cooler. If you want an aftermarket cooler, consider the CM hyper 212+, it has good ratings, but don't spend more than $35 for it.
The 300 is good, if your budget is $10 more, you can get a CM-690 II, which has lots of room to install components, really good airflow, and space for good cable management.
I was using stock it was idling at about 55-60 I changed out to a coolermaster hyper 212+ I'm idling at 40...I've had to make some mods to the side of my case (its old and heavily modified already) to make it fit.
