    Thanks alot, I appreciate the input. Before I go through with purchasing, are there any opinions or thoughts on the build?

    The only things I might change are the SSD, the hard drive, and the case. The Crucial M4 for the SSD, because of its firmware; this hard drive, because it has triple the storage for $15 more; and the case is ugly, but that's personal preference :P.
  4. I would go with the rosewill challenger. it is $10 cheaper and looks awesome.

    Or the Cooler Master 690 II. It's not as boxy.
  6. I recommended you that Coolermaster HAF 912 because you have a lot space inside the case , i tell that because i have that case.In the future you can easy have a Crossfire setup.
  7. Ok guys, I just jumped the gun and ordered the Nvidia Geforce GTX 680. Is that compatible with everything in sosofm's build or do I need to make changes?
  8. Yes is compatible with everything.

    Alright, perfect. I think I go with everything else in your build. I was debating the case, but only the aesthetics would be my reason for changing it.


    Thank you to all who responded to the thread :D
