With some help from people here, i ordered some my parts. Ofc, i managed to squeeze is $50 to make it a $850 build too :) . So this is basically a rate, suggestion, whatever thread. I can still return some of the parts if its a siginifigant upgrade in my budget, but i wont be returning something for like 1 FPS increase.

Only real kinda sorta regrets i have is the case. Didnt want a star wars machine looking case (which is why i didnt get the HAF case), or a side panel window. But my friend said he could fix it up and change some stuff...so ill see how it goes.

The orginal $50 increase (from canceling a game preorder lol) was to buy a CPU cooler, but i decided to just upgrade a part. So anyone have any suggestions of cpu coolers to get in the future? I want to OC my cpu to atleast 4.0


Will probaly most likely be playing games like world of warcraft, skyrim, league of legends, dota 2. ETC. Mostly play games on xbox.

Good choices.

For heatsink, coolermaster hyper 212+ is very popular due to it's price and effectiveness.

Ps. Curious as to how the twin frozr iii compares to this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this one is supposed to be unlockable to a 6970 and has 2gb of ram for high resolution.

Damn, thats a good question, and i really dont know the answer lol.
I just went with the twin frozr becaue i heard they were kept real cool, and my last 2 graphics cards overheated and stopped working. (they lasted a good 3 years or so each though lol)

Sky03 made a good call. Hyper212+ is very good. Check out this review

But one thing to keep in mind is the heat spreaders on DRR3 can conflict with large CPU coolers. I'm not sure what the limit would be for the Hyper212+, but Corsair Vengeance DDR3 is 52.5 mm tall.
