More about would make decent gaming
  1. Decent? No. Awesome and spectacular? Yes.

    Except that Case.
  2. haha thanks man what case should i get? full tower?
  3. No, need for a full. Look through some Cooler Master and NZXT mid towers.
  4. i would recommend win 8 over 7. but get an ssd!. and anti-virus i use avg free, tho there are lots of other alternatives.
  5. I would definitely recommend an SSD, great performance, especially loading games and OS. Corsair 600T and Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced are both good cases.
  6. Do not get windows 7 ,lots of games are not compatible with it yet so go for windows 7 64bit
  7. taking your advice with the CM 690 II and if i got a smaller 32gb ssd for and used the HDD for other stuff would that be any good?
  8. You could boot 1 or 2 newer games off a 32gb
  9. SSD, i just purchased the Corsair 400r Midcase and boy! it is amazing.
  10. I strongly recommend buying Windows 7 instead of 8.
    8 is still buggy.

    I would say buy an SSD if you can budget it.
