This is my first build ever, so I'm very excited for the feedback on how balanced the whole system is. I want to know, if anything in the system is an overkill/bottleneck, and if something should absolutely not be in there and be replaced.
Alright, sounds good, g-unit. Thanks for the quick reply!
So no current game will gain anything from the 3770K or 16GB of RAM?
(If it's of any importance, I'll be playing World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Starcraft II, MW3, BF3, League of Legends, and DOTA II on the system)
No for gaming you won't benefit from hyperthreading and you won't use all 16GB of RAM.
I think I also agree about the case - the HAF X is gigantic and you don't really need the extra room - a HAF 932 is 1/2 the size and will still accommodate the biggest motherboards, GPUs, and anything else you can throw at it.
I don't know about the case. I did pick the HAF X exactly because of what it is. It was never for any practical reason. I want a big, black, bad ass case, which looks awesome with red LED lights in the front, top and side, plus the window in the side.
Ofc, I don't have any real comprehension of what the size of it really is, but if I do decide to pick the HAF X over the XM and 932, I wouldn't be making a decision that would trip up the system, would I?
