Thank you m 0 l nutmanmatt November 25, 2011 6:46:45 PM OK first go AMD with that price you can get a new FX quad runnig at 3.60 and a $25 cpu fan and overclock that sucker to over 4.00 GHz without messing with the voltage. Here is what i recommend hope its not to late... Case:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... Mobo:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...

PSU:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... CPU fan:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... Total would be $590 and this thing could blow through star craft 2 on ultra like nothing. Also if you want to spend a little more get 8gs of ram its worth it. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
