That's a great fram rate for Crysis anyway! Looks like my decision's been made. e2180, the MSI Platinum board, 9600gt, stock cooler* and the basics then.
*What kind of difference would an aftermarket cooler make for the overclockability of this and can you recommend any good ones from that site
PS: Based on this thread, I now actually have the complete, well designed build for the PC in a matter of hours. Not bad at all. No wonder we all like good 'aul TechForums
