Custom PC Needin Checking!

Heyas! My friend is stuck with buying new PC and budget (Which is about 1000-1200 Euros). This is the PC that I figured out for him. I'd ask you to see if the PC Case is good, if the Cooler is enough, will there be any problems? The purpose and main focus of this PC is Gaming. Probably using Dual Screen too!

Also, if something could be replaced with somewhat cheaper but still awesome component, as he'd like to try and get a monitor as-well with it. (Which I doubt for now, but we'll see.)

A link but its on other language.

  1. Go for a build based on a Sandy Bridge processor (i5 2500k would be my recommendation).. And what's that IDE drive for..!! Get a SATA DVD writer.. Meanwhile what's the main purpose for the build..?? Gaming and/or work..?? Mention in some detail..
  2. Sandy Bridge Processor? i5? What would be the main differences? Is it better in some aspects or?

    And oh LOL totally looked over that, getting SATA right away! Think this is good enough? ASUS DRW-24B3ST (Retail, 12x DVD-RAM schrijven, Zwart)

    The purpose and main focus of this PC is Gaming. Probably using Dual Screen too!
  3. Yes that Asus drive is very good.. As for Sandy Bridge, its new tech and quite a bit faster compared to LGA 1156.. Check with google for comparative reviews.. Even Tom's have done their own review of the chip..
