  4. the build looks good , but you can still have the same performance with less money.

    And how would i do that?
  6. - motherboard get the gigabyte UD3H
    - get a gtx 670 ( the gtx 680 in all proper benchmarks is better than the 670 with just a 6 to 11 fps MAX and i wouldn't pay all this money for that difference.
    - get the noctua nh-d14 ot nzxt havik 140 as a cooler.
    - get a normal 1600 ram with CAS 9 and 1.5V , you wouldn't feel any difference between 1866 and 1600.
    - get a seagate barracuda or caviar blue , the caviar black is a waste of money.

    - I Really like the looks of that MSI board
    - I will look into that
    - I want water cooling just for the heck off it
    - 1600 RAM is not in stock :(
    - That's a 8 euro difference here, so....
  8. are you just buying mobo for the look , you are not going to stay with it in the case ! , anyway do whatever you like the build is good anyway , it was just tips.
