Hey guys, it is almost vacation and I want to build my own desktop in the vacation. This is my first time building my own pc, so I thought it would be wise to ask the opinion of the pros. I want it to be fast, be able to play the latest games (not necessarily highest quality) and cost about 700-800 € , 900 – 1050 $ or 550 – 650 £

I still think about using fans or water cooling.


Case: Sharkoon T28 Red Edition (has 3 case fans, so I thought I wont need a water cooling, but I still want to know your opinion)

better power supply definitely never heard of that brand before and go with either a gtx 550ti or a 7750 as they will give you better performance also swap the tx3 for a hyper 212 its only slightly more expensive and will net you lower temps.
