B. would you recommend any different components?
C. Am I forgetting anything?
This rig will primarily be for gaming/autocad/revit work (nothing too serious yet just starting out in it).
Case: LIAN LI PC-V1020B (will this case be cool enough, or should i add aftermarket fans. maybe recommend a different case, i prefer minimal designs?) PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W (will this be enough to power all this) Mother Board: BIOSTAR TZ68A+RCH (am i skimping too much on this?) CPU: Intel i5 Sandy Bridge 2500k VideoCard: I'm inbetween two different cards rite now, which do you guys believe will give better performance in autocad/revit because I know either will perform admirably at gaming 1: EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 2.
