ok heres something thats better
heres 2 builds. the differences is in the case, cooler, and motherboard.http://pcpartpicker.com/p/e7Mwhttp://pcpartpicker.com/p/e7Jt
the changes only make the first build more premium. they perform the same otherwise
The Antec case looks very nice for the price, I am impressed. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. However I do like the tool-less sort of "noob friendly" appeal of the Obsidian case. I was told Gigabyte's support was to be avoided, so I was trying to steer clear of their boards. Are there any support-friendly alternatives in case of any issues? If I was more experienced and could handle most problems myself, I would be less hesitant about getting one. Still have to look at the suggested cooler. Thank you very much TheBigTroll.
*Also, has anyone else heard of potential problems between Corsair PSU's and ASUS boards? If I should have to pick an alternative PSU around ~750W, can anyone make any suggestions?
