I think the graphics card and the PSU I chose are adequate, but if there is something else better for a decent price let me know. I was also thinking of getting a liquid cooling system as well, unfortunately I don't know what a good brand would be . My budget is 0504$1000-$1400; will be used for Gaming and Video editing
Can you tell me what's the difference between the G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory and the Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit?
It comes up to $1207.84 before taxes. What do you think??
Everything looks good but three things. That Cooler Master psu the case and the RAM.
Cooler Master psu's aren't recommended by anyone on here for the fact they suck, and you don't need a 850w psu unless you plan on powering a jet engine. A 650 psu will easily push two of those cards, and if you want plenty of head room then go for a 750w.
Last is the case. That Cooler Master Elite is small and I mean really small. Look for a case that has room to fit all your components, good cooling, and front 3.0 USB ports.
Look at the Corsair 300R, Corsair 400R, or the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer (not really a good choice though...no side cooling and its a hot box), Cooler Master 922 even and then just add a Biostar front 3.0 USB panel to it.
I did a bit of research on the case you recommended (the HAF MX). It looks freaking epic and their are so many positive reviews on it. I'm going to go with the XFX 750W PRO750W Core Edition( http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/233768/P1750SNLB9/XFX... ), it's a good price. And i guess your right about the RAM cards, they are awkwardly shaped . I don't think I'll need those fans since i don't really have much to cool, so I'll just drop them. Total comes up to $1401.30 (including tax); only $1.30 over budget, not bad
