Prodigy mITX build Budget $1500cdn

Computer Strictly for Gaming as I have an Macbook Pro Retina for my everyday tasks. That why the SSD I have in there is super small. I want the computer to be as cool "temperature" as possible. So I will be doing no overlclocking. Target game is ARMA 3 @ 1080p. Budget is max at 1500cdn before tax however lower is better of course.

  1. Best answer
    Drop the 3770 for a 3570, as HT offers no benefit in gaming.
  2. If I go

    i5 3570
    Samsung 840 120 SSD
    Asus P8H77
    H60 instead of H100
    Corsair Blue Vengeance 8Gb instead of 16Gb Black

    My build would come in at $1,180 instead. Saving $230

    get the 3470 instead. marginally slower but 20 bucks cheaper

    840 no pro sucks

    you dont need those fisher price watercoolers.

    corsair ram is both expensive right now and tall as hell
