  1. Nice work, thats a fairly good budget build. Only one change I would make.

    Pay an extra $8 to get 8GB of RAM, as eventually you will want that extra RAM and on that board would require an entirely new kit.

  2. This is actually a really nice budget build. But I would also second the 8GB of RAM.
  3. You also really do not need a CD drive
  4. Plz realize that NZXT cases have (relatively) non standard fan mounts. If you want extra fans, you have to buy them from NZXT for them to fit. Concur with Deemo and Manofchalk on the DDR.

    Never heard that before, glad to have learned instead of being bitten.
    I like their cases but if I can't pick any fan I want then I'd have issues with NZXT.
  6. Non standard? I've fit fans just fine on all of the NZXT cases I've ever had with all 120MM fans.

    I've worked with the H2, Vulcan, and Phantom 410, and they all had standard fan mounts.
  7. The non standard claim is false.

    I have that exact same case and the fans work just fine.

    Only issue is I cannot use one of the side fans because of my after market cooler. Additionally the front fan is a pain (requires plastic pulls since screwing it is basically impossible).

    Other then that it is 100% fine computer case
  8. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/sbLj Thanks for the feedback. I meant to get 8gb of ram but chose 4gb by accident. Thanks for pointing that out.
