Only thing I would change about is is the case, as at stock it is a bit feature-less. Would throw at least two front intake fans on it if you dont want to change it.

The case isn't a BAD case, just a bit bare on stock, and I believe it only comes with two extra fans

forgive me for asking but do i have to buy a sound card to??really need answer the way the new case is like like
November 6, 2012 9:18:49 AM

Unless you have the sound system to justify one or are music editing, onboard sound will be fine.

i only have 2 speakers so i can sometimes listen music but for gaming i use i'm okay?right??
November 6, 2012 9:32:07 AM

For a basic stereo speaker setup, you dont need a sound card. Unless that headset is quite expensive ($150+), you wont need one.

its okay.....sorry for asking but i couldn't notice your system..i know that your cpu is OC??so you're gpu??right?
November 6, 2012 9:39:18 AM

Yep, both of them are overclocked.
November 6, 2012 9:42:50 AM

so mine without OC do you think i could get high settings,lets say in baf3 (very important:cod4 mw,2,3 black ops 1,2) dishonored, borderlands2....i play a lot cod4 so for the others i dont mind if its regular.....
November 6, 2012 9:50:09 AM

Quite easily I think. After overclocking my 7870 would be roughly the same as a stock 7950, and I am getting very good performance from it. While I cant testify for those games, I am getting an average of ~45FPS in Crysis 2 (Ultra everything, DX11 and high res pack @1080p).
Should be fine for COD (which is designed to run at 60FPS on consoles, for a strong gaming rig like yours it will easily max out).

last question and i'll be out of your way,i'm going to build it my self....i was working as a mechanic before the university but i'm afraid a litle that i'll screw it think i can do it my self???
November 6, 2012 9:58:37 AM

Have you ever played with Lego and can you read?
If yes, then you can build a computer.

Suspect that being a mechanic is harder than building a computer.

Heres a couple of good tutorials I learnt from.
NCIX Build Guide.
Newegg Build Guide part 2 (Part 3 is installing Windows, drivers and such. Worth watching)

And a Cable Management guide, this is also worth watching and doing. Fully expect to get nowhere neat as him behind the mobo tray, I have invested 2+ hours into cable management and its is nowhere near as good. Linus is just some kind of genius with this stuff.
