I still need to pick out a monitor. I'm a little price sensitive, but I want really low input lag with a good color gamut. It looks like TN is probably the way to go for minimal input lag. Something around 22"-24" is probably ideal, but don't consider these hard limits.
I also need a case. I'd like a quiet, portable case - handles are a plus, as are quiet fans. I would especially like a case with hard drive suspension/shock absorption. A lack of side windows would be icing on the cake, but that only matters if everything else is relatively equal. It would be nice if it had a 2.5" bay, but I can buy a 2.5"->3.5" adapter for the SSD.
Which case do you recommend? Which monitor? Is the build sound? (Is the PSU going to provide enough power?)
22-24" is the size I'm looking at for a monitor, azeem40. My biggest concern is input lag.
2x4 (8gb) of DDR3 1600 seems to be the same price from Kingston and G.Skill, so I'm not too worried about that.
Thanks for the tip about the cooler; I don't think I'll be pushing it past 4GHz.
The CM HAF 912 case doesn't have any kind of shock absorption in it, but this is the case I bought for my friend, and it seems like a pretty decent case. If anyone else has recommendations, though, I'm still interested in hearing them.
