  3. What do you guys think about this?

    Would like to change the cooler to something less ugly.

    Is 16GB of RAM neccesary?

    Do I really need an 80Plus Gold Certified PSU?

    Any other neat looking cases with side windows that I could consider? I was deciding between this and the cooler master storm enforcer.

    Thanks for the help. :)

    Have a 4 year old CD drive, 1 2TB Hitachi 7200 RPM drive, and 1 500GB HDD that I'll be salvaging off the old computer.
  4. 1:no problem with the d14. like you can see it that much
    2: first of all, 1.65v ram is bad for intel systems. and second you dont need that much ram
    3:you dont. the one i recommended is more than enough
    4:the samsung drive in my opinion is more trusted than the vertex 4. either one is ok
    5: the msi power edition is a overall better gtx670 than the windforce. the cooler is about the same but the msi has overvolting support that no other card. lets you have a little more headroom in overclocking
    6:you can check this case out

    there is a grey version
