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 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. Share 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 ? m 0 l Related resources Gaming PC build, around $900 - Forum gaming build around $900 w/o video card - Forum Basic Gaming PC build around $900 - Forum Gaming Pc build around 900$ - Forum New Build around $700-$900 (Asus/Intel Haswell Build) - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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. m 0 l Projekx July 17, 2011 6:34:24 PM Thank you coleam45 I'll go with that build. m 0 l Projekx July 17, 2011 6:34:41 PM Best answer selected by Projekx. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
