  1. Normally, you do not need more than already come in a gaming case. The case you selected would be all right for a general purpose computer, but it is not really suitable for a gaming case.

    For about the same budget, this is a better case for a gaming PC:

    I think the CM 690 II is one of the best cases around for less than $100.

  2. I'm questioning the graphics card as well, if your gaming you want at least an ATI/AMD 5770/6770 or Nvidia 460 level card in there,
    Although you don't mention the intended use, we assume its a gaming build :P
    btw 4Gb is enough for gaming, 8 is upper end and has plenty of life in it, 16Gb is more for people using heavy editing programs

  3. Hi i was wondering if any of you had any info on the best cooler to get for my setup?

    Gigabyte P55-US3L

    INTEL CORE i5 750

    8G,G.SKILL RIPJAWS 1600

    XFX HD 6850 1GB

    2X2TB CAVIAR GREEN

    CORSAIR VX 450 PSU

    NZXT GAMMA CASE

    Now i was looking at the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus and the Corsair Air Series A70 but wanted to be sure that they would fit into my case, looking at some pics they look like they would overhang the ram slots any help would be appreciated and also any other ideas on the cooling front too, thanks
