Thanks again for your help and support The Crazy French Man ProjeKx More about : gaming build 900 Best solution coleam45 July 17, 2011 4:16:24 PM Share Looks pretty good. Only thing I would change is the hard drive. The Caviar Greens are meant to use less power, so they're slow. Something like a Seagate Barracuda would be better. Get a second one if you really need 2 TB of storage. You could consider a different cooler as well; it looks like the price has doubled on the one you linked. The CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ and Scythe Mugen are two of the best. Projekx July 17, 2011 4:20:20 PM Thanks for the HDD advice, I didn't notice that earlier... As for the cooler, I have special guest price at NCIX. So at this price...should I keep it in my build ? Related resources Help me build a gaming computer for around $8- 900 .

It's got similar performance to the Hyper 212+ and is quieter, so for just $5 more, that's not bad. I wouldn't buy it at the MSRP though. Projekx July 17, 2011 6:34:24 PM Thank you coleam45 I'll go with that build. Projekx July 17, 2011 6:34:41 PM Best answer selected by Projekx. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
