If you don't intend to overclock you can save a few bucks, and if you do, you will need aftermarket cooling to clock to anything decent. mikerockett February 7, 2013 7:42:39 AM The rig isn't too bad but i think improvements could be made. Added a CPU cooler to utilise the k chip and Z77 board, larger HDD, better GPU, PSU has higher wattage, more reliable and modular. It is also a little cheaper, if you dont live near a microcentre it's still only $822.87 getting the parts at amazon.
