Exclamation Ordering Tomorrow, Please Check My Build!!

Alright I am ordering all my parts at newegg except for the CPU, because it is out of stock.

What do you guys think of this build?

Im also worried that the tuniq tower wont fit in my case, i was going to get a Zalman 9700 or 9500 but ive heard that both have problems with my motherboard. I want to be really sure i dont screw up anything this time around.

Thanks for any advice given,
Alexsabree :laughing:

looks good

good price on the PSU too

go to Microcenter and buy it, or use Directron (they are reputable or so I've heard)

I don't think their are any microcenters around here (Arkansas, US)

Yeah directron seems pretty legit, im just worried that the 8400 might be on back-order or something. Lots of sites will do that and not tell you.

if you want to make some some cash you sell off the PSU in that Raidmax Case or use it as a doorstop... /happyface

anyways, I doubt they'd do that, but if they did do that, there would be a bunch of complains in their reviews for the e8400

as for the Tuniq Tower not fitting, I have no idea, but you could always leave the left side panel off?

Hmm.. I probably should not buy those headphones and mouse because i already have decent ones and get a better/bigger full-tower case.

What do you think?

(dang, but for $40 that case is a steal, man this is a hard decision.)

remember, accessories aren't absolute, and most of the time the cases are

if you like the case buy one sell it on eBay for a profit, just use a crappy mouse and stick with speakers for now

just my opinions

good solid build...

Why ADATA?
And Why that case?

I personally would have gone with Gskill or Crucial ram and i would have gone with a diff. case, but hey to each his own. Great choice on CPU and GPU though. Enjoy!

A-data is cheap ram that offers good performance.

As for the Smilodon, it's a great case and for 40 bucks thats a steal. Raidmax makes some good flashy cases that still offer good quality...unlike apevia yuck.
