Hey guys I'm trying to build a fairly future proof PC, great-decent for next 3-4 years and mainly for gaming and video editing.
I havn't put together a computer for a very long, about 12-13 years, so I'm unfamiliar with the new products these days. I've been sticking with a new laptop about every 2 years and decided its time for a good pc, especially with Diablo 3 coming out, which I have been dreaming about for a decade .
I have done some research on these forums and they have helped a lot, thank you! But I still need a little advice on the remaining parts and if all the components will work/fit together.
Parts not required: Keyboard, speakers, headset, mouse, monitors.
1. I want it to be done before May 12th. Ivy bridge will be released so I dont see any problems with waiting for it
2. I want the case to be a full tower and fit everything comfortably with great airflow. And LEDs Red/Blue.
3. Do I need to add any addition fans or cooling to the build?
For case, I have the Carbide 500R by Corsair and installing all the components inside it is very simple. I highly recommend it. It is $125 atm for the black edition. For PSU, since you plan on SLI/CF later, get any unit from XFX or Seasonic, or PC Power and Cooling, or TX/HX/AX Corsair series. Here is what I recommend for PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
