Hello, looking to build a new computer, but reuse case from a previous 'assisted' build. This time is a solo effort so I could really use someone idiot checking my parts selection and reasoning.
Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as I get a review!
Budget Range: ~1,000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Games, Internet
Parts Not Required: KB,Mouse,Monitor (might use 46" HDTV or old Samsung monitor), 2x ODD's (CD/DVD), Hopefully reusing Thermaltake Armor Series V8000BWS mine is similar - doesn't have side fan but is a full tower. It's using ATX format backplate.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com/tigerdirect etc, wherever is cheapest!
Country: USA (Sacto)
Overclocking: Yes, but only in so far as 'auto OC' features..
Memory: GSKILL Sniper 2x4GB ($42.99)I'm really uncertain on the memory bit.. Ripjaw's seem popular, previously I had gotten Crucial Ballistix... I would like stable, effective memory that responds well to an 'auto OC' feature.
HDD:Reformat and reuse Seagate barracude 7200RPM 250GB for storage/unimportant stuff
