Last response: in Systems
February 2, 2013 1:03:26 AM


Approximate Purchase Date: Within 72 Hours

Budget Range: Maximum of $1000 (Not including the ASUS Monitor)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet, and Music (Playback only)

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, CD Reader/Writer, and Monitor (Though I will buy the one listed at a later date)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, but more than willing to go outside of that.

Country: US

Parts Preferences: Intel Build. HDD Memory only (for now).

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Additional Comments: This list has been around for a few months, and I have been adding and deleting to/from it for a while. I just want last minute tweaks, not too much major changing. Also, what will I need to buy seperate for the actual assembly? (ex. Will the thermal paste for my CPU come with the CPU, or do I need to get that seperately?)

Also, FANS, will I have enough airflow? I have one spare fan now from an old computer as well.

Thank you for your feedback!

for the fans lok like it a nice case as it is with all the open grills. if you have the ps on the bottom pulling cold air in. I would if i added a spare fan would be one more 120mm fan on the bottom of the case and have it pulling air in. the 120mm fan that there now in the case make sure it set to blow out. the only thing i would swap out is the ram kit to a low profile ram stick.

put the one stick in the back where it going to be covered by the heat sink.
