How does my parts list look? Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: November 5, 2012 6:28 PM in Systems Share lowcountrysmoke November 4, 2012 2:00:38 PM This is my first budget build for gaming. Thoughts? I know the case is cheap and doesn't support usb3.0 but I don't think 3.0 is necessary anyways and it is allowing me to spend more on gpu/cpu http://pcpartpicker.com/p/mtEh More about : parts list lowcountrysmoke November 4, 2012 2:07:32 PM OH yeah I forgot to add a driver, so that will add another 17-20$ geofelt November 4, 2012 2:11:47 PM Looks reasonable. If you live near a microcenter, they will sell you a 3570K for the same $190. Related resources How does my parts list look ?

TheBigTroll November 4, 2012 4:30:25 PM because its cheaper and there isnt a noticeable performance boost from a 3330 and a 3470 lowcountrysmoke November 5, 2012 2:16:11 PM Will a xfx 7870 DD fit ok in the fractal design? On The specifications it says clearance is only 8.5" where the gpu is 9.5". geofelt November 5, 2012 3:03:26 PM lowcountrysmoke said:Will a xfx 7870 DD fit ok in the fractal design? On The specifications it says clearance is only 8.5" where the gpu is 9.5". I think so. That 8.5" is true if you use ALL of the hard drive bays which are removeable. If you use only the top bay, you can use a card as long as 13" Read the details here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... lowcountrysmoke November 5, 2012 6:28:16 PM Yeh your right, they designed this case so you mount the drive vertical which leaves plenty of room for any gpu.
