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$ m 0 l geofelt November 4, 2012 2:11:47 PM Looks reasonable.

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.
