After days of reviews on the net, I've came with this build to be kick-a$$. If some of you disagreeing with me, please explain why I should change my build and with what I should replace it.
My questions is: Is there any component mentioned above unnecessary or needs to be changed? I want the very Price/Performance PC and ALSO if you can see, the components are the same color. I want to keep this RED LED so please if you think I should change something, I want it to be RED. :]
PS. 4GB or 8GB??
BUDGET is 1,000$ without taxes and shippment. 1,200$ MAX
and the thing that stands out like a sore thumb is the CM V8. From what I hear, it's not worth it. You'd be better off with the $30 CM Hyper 212+ if you are only overclocking to 4GHz. The 212+ can get you up to 4.5GHz easily if you ever feel the need.
CM Hyper 212+ is a nice cooler. But I do keep in mind the looks of the Heatsink. It has a cheap look to it and it also has one 120MM fan.
The V8 has two 120MM fan with adjustable RPM. It has little red LEDs on it which makes it even more appealing. The price of these two products are slightly different. The V8 is not that bad though. I think i'll stick with it.
After all when I want a PC, I want it 60%/40% Performace/Look (inside included)
