  1. No link to your build.
  2. You should lower ur CPU to about an i5-2500k should be plenty.
  3. Best answer
    You could change to an i5 3470 and h77 board. No overclocking but basically the same performance as the 3570.

    You could change to an AMD fx-6300 and cheaper motherboard and put more money in the GPU.

    You don't need extra case fans

    You don't need a power supply power cord. (it comes with the PSU)

    Don't do this. There is no reason to go to tech which is about to be 2 years old.
  5. What mother board should i get for the amd fx6300? I would like to overclock too
  6. Thank you! Also the Power supply says it doesnt come with a power cord on newegg, In the overview tab at the bottoms under features
  7. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9 get this PSU. Its made y seasonic and re-branded. Very good quality supply.
  8. I cant thank you enough, Seriously, but one more thing. Whats a good GPU? I really like the amd 7800 and 7900 series, because of the two free games :P.
  9. Anytime man! What is your budget for the GPU?
  10. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/C5Ay This is what i chose, 1000$ is my budget so this one was perfect. Unless you have a better idea, then this is probably fine

    Do this. The i5 will be considerable better than the fx-6300.

    The PSU has a power cord

    The Case comes with an intake and exhaust fan. They will be plenty.
