Hello everyone. I'm looking for some feedback on a new gaming build. My budget is $1,500 to $2,000. Right now I'm right around $1,600, so I have some money to work with if it will improve performance and whatnot. Any input and advice is welcome! Also, I could really use some advice on a CPU cooler that will fit in my Antec Nine Hundred case that I'd like to reuse from my old build.
Approximate Purchase Date: 1 to 2 weeks
Budget Range: $1,500 to $2,000 (after rebates)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, mmo's, internet, movies
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, case (Antec Nine Hundred)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or Tigerdirect
The hyer 212 is a great cooler, dont need the paste it comes with it dont need the fan either, ram doesnt get that hot. With that budget might want to get SSD over raptor. Can put more money into video card if you want. Uses can help us help you more, theres a guide on this new build section if you want to repost in that it woul be good.
For the uses, the price you are at spending more is going to give so minimal increase that its not even worth it. Im sure all this stuff would even come out cheaper on newegg(use this site). Theres some really nice cases out if you wanted to replace the old one. Looking like a nice build, still dont need the ram fan and thermal paste.
