I heard lots of good stuff about Cooler Master 932, but also Antec, so not sure. Dirt filters, worth getting a case with them or not? Something like the CM 690 ii.
Heatsink: Heard CM Hyper 212 is good, but really have no clue about this.
HDD: Would like to get two 1TB drives, maybe do raid 0 for better performance, but have no idea how or if it's even worth it. Definitely will not be getting any SSDs as they are way too expensive right now.
If I'm missing any other parts I haven't already listed at the top that are necessary, please let me know. This is my first time building a computer, thanks.
Hyper 212 was the cats pajamas 18 months ago, but the new boy on the block is the Scythe Mugen 2
Case / PSU :
-If ya thinking HAF-932, I'd say upgrade to the HAF-X w/ the XFX Black Edition 850 PSU.
-Personally I prefer the Antec DF-85 w/the Antec CP-850 PSU (usually about $40-50 cheaper than the above combo.
Both PSU's get 10.0 performance rating on johnnyguru, tho the CP is quieter. I have built with 1200, 932, HAF-X and DF-85 and though I prefer working in the NAtec's it's hard to call any of them a bad choice. The 1200 and 932 tho are a bit outdated considering the additional features in the new versions. If ya wanna go mid tower, the DF-35 or HAF-922 with XFX Black Edition. You cud get away with a good 750 watter but most good 750's cost more than the Black and the XFX 750 is only $10 cheaper. And yes, dust filters rock .... ever try cleaning dust out of nearly 1 KG CPU cooler ?
HD - The Spinpoint F3 1 TB is $55 .... grab it
Here's a similar build about to be underway ..... its new owner hemmed and hawed on component selection and as a result case went up $20, MoBo / CPU combo went up $30, and SSD went up $30 so its $80 more than when originally put together. Comes to $1588 but w/ the Asus 6850 I linked to being $90 cheaper than the 560, you should come to $1498 w/ that substitution.
