  1. Good build!
    A good case at that price range would be a CMaster HAF 932/912 or Antec 302. (although I dont know how much they are in SGD, they are around the $90-100 price range. Except for the 912 which is $50.)

    Budget will be $2000SGD or $1500AUD or $1600USD.

    The main thing i wanna know is if those parts i've listed will any of em be a bottleneck or any of the other parts or if anyone have have suggestion on which part to change to for more stablity for the long run. I know alot of ppl suggest ASrock but does that mobos long in the long run? I don't wanna have to find it is not working within a few months time but i know this linda things is hard to predict.

    So any type of suggestion is well appreciated.

  7. You have a good build. Just wondering if you plan to SLI in the future? Might be worth it to get a 750W PSU just to be on the safe side (accounting for aging and other future upgrades). I would suggest the XFX Pro 750W. Its Silver rated, semi-modular, and is very reliable.

    As for the case, The Haf XM and the Phantom 410 are both good. I like the Corsair Carbide Series better however. Something like the Corsair Carbide 400R or 500R.
