  1. Impressive! Other than the OS, what are you loading onto the SSD?
  2. BF3, MW3, Dragonball Z Budokai 3, and a few old games like spyro for ps1 and dbz for ps1 and 2.
    EDIT: Changing cooler to this: I need suggestions on speakers. Any suggestions? I have about $46 left for them.

    EDIT2: Will buy bigger HDD around May or so. For now, 500 GB + 250 GB my dad has will do.
    EDIT3: Any more opinions?
    EDIT4: What Speakers (and sound card, but mainly speakers) should I get? I have about $76 to spend, but if you're only suggesting speakers, please don't use all the $76. Otherwise, feel free to use the whole $76. I will be 2-3' away from them btw.
  3. I would really appreciate some answers to my questions. Any speakers with good bass is fine with me.
  4. I would stick with the onboard sound card and just spend it on speakers. You could get these for just a hair over your budget
  5. I honestly dont need surround sound. Just a normal 2-speaker set with bass will do.
