- Are you going to overclock - yes in the future but not much only a little thats when i get my corsair cooler and thats going to take sum time to build up the buget again

- What resolution are you going to be gaming at - im planning on buying a 32"samsung full hd tv as a monitor so ima try and take it to the max

- What is your budget - i live in south africa and my buget is about R7000

- What sites do you prefer - ?

- What parts do you not need - if you talking about the mobo then the stuff im going to need is
6gb sata ports
3gb sata ports
usb 3.0
single pci exp slot or dual but im not planning to run dual gfx anytime soon and atleast 2 pci slots
ddr3 ram slots must take atleast up to 2000mhz memory speed incase im buying that 2 2gb ocz reaper sticks R500 instead of the 4 x 2gb kingston sticks R680

Do you know how much that is in USD?
August 6, 2011 11:44:56 AM

R1 = $6.67
August 6, 2011 4:27:59 PM

Ummm, that would mean your budget is $46,690. I don't think that's right.

ok so i orded the goodies yesterday and now the waiting part comes and now i came across another problem i need to decide between 2 cases the nzxt phantom and the haf 932 but im not in a hurry cos i got an old case that i can use for the moment
August 12, 2011 1:10:18 AM

Well, out of those two, I would personally go with the Phantom, because I am big on looks of cases. I like how nice and smooth it is. But, for around the same price of the 932, you can get the Antec Lanboy Air, (right now). Which is a good deal, because it is usually about 200 I believe.
August 14, 2011 2:59:05 PM

thanx for the reply i also love the looks of it but is the phantom case just as cool as the haf cases
August 14, 2011 4:57:32 PM

I think that the Phantom is cooler, because the front opens, and there are so many customizing possibilities with it. Also, it is a bit taller, and has room in the top for stuff (more customizations, fan controllers, etc.)

so it looks like im going to buy the phantom case now just to decide the colour whitelooks cute but im a smoker so that white will def turn into a cream colour so thats a no go red black black with green stripe uhm....
