Additional Comments: Dust filters or a dust conscious case would be great bonus, my house is dusty. I also want a ~220gb SSD, and a Small (1tb-750gb) but fast HDD
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I want to be able to play Planetside 2 and Livestream @ 720p in high to ultra settings. PS2 is a CPU intensive game, and I'm tired of running things with 20-35 fps. I want to mildly (3.8ghz) overclock the Cpu down the road, and as far as I've read, the stock cooler will be sufficient for this, but if this isn't true id appreciate what you all know.
This is what I've assembled so far in Partpicker, The things I am uncertain of are the Case, Motherboard, Memory, and PSU. Will what I'm looking for fit into a Mid-tower? Do these components run hot to where a Full tower may be a wiser choice for airflow?
