This will do just fine for stock or low level overclocking. -Wolf sends SR-71 Blackbird February 7, 2013 10:32:43 PM FX CHIPS run very hot and the stock HSF is poor i would get an aftermarket cooler.

Having mid to high end components for gaming are not well utilized if you plan on playing on low resolutions. cutebeans February 7, 2013 11:36:04 PM Get a cheaper case, 200r like above poster said. Get a 500w power supply Buy CM 212 Hyper Evo. bsod1 February 8, 2013 9:21:34 AM slomo4sho said:Since it's your first rig, what resolution monitor are you purchasing?
