hi, I'd like some advise on a build I'm planning to purchase. I don't have a lot of experience with buying PC's, but I want to be sure I buy something that worth the money. Any advise is welcome!
for the information on the PC:
Approximate Purchase Date: within two weeks
Budget Range: €970,- (± $1200,-)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming (I like to play on high settings), surfing the internet, watching movies, etc. I would like this system to last me for at least 3 years before making upgrades
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
there are a few thing I would like to know,
first, as a total, is this a good built? did I make any mistakes, can I improve anything or save on anything?
second, can I crossfire in the future with this build? does it have a good enough PSU and Motherboard etc. for that?
thirdly, is the cooling to much, are the fans any good? can it be done cheaper?
and last, is the HDD good? I have no knowledge whatsoever about HDD's.
You don't need case fans. Your case comes with the needed fans for cooling. You forgot a cooler. Get the Hyper 212 EVO.
ok thanks, what does such a cooler do? Is the stock cooler on the i5 2500k not good enough? because this cooler would raise the price of the PC by about 20 euro (after I subtract the 14 dollar I save with removing 2 additional case fans). Is a cooler really worth the extra money?
