im looking into building a new desktop, primarily used from gaming. i've been looking into some different set-ups, the one im considering building would be using a ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA and a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus . the case i was thinking about getting is XION Gaming Series XON-980-BK
my question is will that fit inside this case, if not then could you recommend a good case around that price range. and if so you could still recommend something that would be a better buy.
specs for desired built - please give advice if you think anything could be done better/cheaper(same efficiency)
case - XION Gaming Series XON-980
memory - Western Digital WD Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM
Crucial V4 2.5" 256GB SATA II SDD
MB - ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA
cpu - Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
Hs - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
gpu - 2x MSI OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB
psu - CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3
ram - Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
whoops- typed the wrong thing there the 212 evo is the one i was looking into getting, not sure how i messed that up.
just looked at sata III, thanks for that, much better a bit more pricey but there are some reasonable ones.
i didn't get a 4gb version because i will only be running on 1 monitor at 1920x1080 and from what i've read its not necessary unless you plan a multi-monitor setup.(please correct me if this isn't right)
as far as the 3770k, i got it for performance gain when multi-tasking and faster response times when running programs and utilities - mainly creating mods or working in something like the creation kit for skyrim. i could downgrade but the price drop isn't that significant so i didn't see a reason not to unless it is just really unnecessary for what i'm wanting to do.
i also changed a few things in my setup - with some of you're help this seems better and its near the same price - changed to better mobo and a different case - thoughts/opinions?
