Need help with parts for first gaming PC

I love topics where people want to play the just about most demanding games on high/ultra with a breadcrumb budget. For $700.00 GW2 wvw is going to be a slideshow. FF is going to be even worse.

Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 105

That's what I use. It has blue LEDs though so if you're looking for something without them then the Fractal Design R4 would also work but it's more expensive.

Looking at videos of people with the cpu/gpu (standalone of course) they seem to be okay considering they're recording even. I think people may be blowing smoke out of the water sometimes when it comes to game requirements around here, it wouldn't be the first time I've been tossed around gamefaqs with people being incorrect.

I'm well aware I won't be playing on max or anything just yet, and maybe wouldn't even with a better GPU, but I'll surely be able to have pretty high settings if I keep AA low/shadows turned down a bit, my monitor resolution isn't terribly big to begin with.

Giving this a last bump I suppose, if nothing else I'll just romp around and try and find a bigger case myself.

bump again sorry ;;, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1G6aB

this is what I have so far minus the different tower, all I want is something to fit the darned massive heatsink, removing that current tower should still leave me more than enough room under my budget to get a larger case, should I be looking for something labeled full tower or something? All mid towers I'm reading about seem to have size contraints..

Any of these would fit the 212 EVO

As for full towers they're mostly out of your budget and you really don't need all that room anyway.

Also try to look around for these cases on other sites that might offer free shipping since the shipping adds 10-20% onto the price

Okay, this is what I've come up with and I think I'm going for it, I'm happy with how it all looks thus far.

The CPU cooler is much better.


No it's not... That Noctua is great for silence but it's barely better than the Intel stock cooler when it comes to temperatures.
