Re: First time building a gaming rig- Criticism welcome
great advice Mguire. i agree with everything youve said.
i would also like to reiterate going with a 680 over a 7970, i just switched from AMD to Nvidia 680. havent looked back. Radeon will have to come out with a complete monster to win me back.
the only thing i would say would be to go with 16 gigs of ram instead of just 8 gigs. with ram being as cheap as it is, its worth it to spend an extra $30 over a 8gig kit for 16 gig kit.
also, ill agree with Mguire about not getting a HAF932, i had the HAFX which is a beefier 932, and i didnt like it... defiantly look at anything from corsair.
