i'm looking for a case around 100 that has excellent airflow. honestly i want the storm trooper from CM. but its 50 dollars more than i want to spend. lol. do you know any case that is similar or even better in your opinion?.
I'm building almost the exact same computer right now, I went with the Corsair 500R as my case(got it for $118 on amazon).
If you are gaming, the ASRock should be fine.
8 gb of DDR3-1600 is all you need for gaming also.
As for the power supply, every1 will tell you to not cut corners here. If you aren't planning on SLI in the future, just get 550w-600w of a good brand name. If you are, then 750w is what you should go with.
K that sounds good then, should be fine with the low profile RAM.
The bronze rated is the efficiency, it has at least an 82%.
And 750W is plenty even for a future SLI. So no real point in having more, and the one I showed you has th2 $20 mail in rebate, so would be $25 more. Also the one I showed is known to be reliable and quiet.
Thats fine about the case, cases are very personal. But the Corsair 500r seems to be extremely well built, and have everything a case needs. I just ordered on the other day, so pretty soon I could tell you for sure.
