Your build is fine. Buy it.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

It's good but I get Ram at 1600 hz or better. Not that big of a deal, however.
I don't think they make RAM that slow. In the 70s, maybe. That's so slow it's in the audible range of hearing.

That case is ugly


I think it looks great especially when the LEDS are red, blue, or a mixture of colors. Outside of that it has great airflow which is another plus. Room for 3 120MM fans and a 180MM fan will do great for cooling the rig.
LEDs and windows are so 2004.

I would personally pick up a few fans for the case (perhaps just two or so extra for front / back). Not something you need immediately, but an improved air flow is pretty helpful for keeping PC temp down.

I thought the EVO 2012 would be all I need???

Case fans are different than the EVO. The Evo is a heatsink for your CPU only and only needed if overclocking. Most cases come with at least 2 120mm fans to move air in and out of your case. And most have spots for additional fans. You need fans so the hot air from your components like your CPU and gpu can be moved out and cool air moved in as well. My nxzt came with two fans, I added one more. They are like $7.

Def not dropping the RAM to 4. I want 8. Keeping the cooler, do not want to risk it. 600 watts will basically future proof my rig. Glad you guys like it, I'm guessing I did pretty good for myself. Putting it together will be another story.


Why make this topic if you aren't going to listen?
