Thats true.. some people here are a little scared to overclock... I think we all assumed he wanted to overclock, but then again we force half the people to overclock

Well...NXZT Case is great cooling.

I was planning on overclocking if someone was able to show me how to do it.

I am keeping the E8400 just because its better for older games at the moment.

I know quite a bit about computers, I just know nothing really about overclocking.

So maybe the best with overclocking, and the best without?

You guys are such a great help.

Keep it up

With the help of some other stuff, how does this look so far?

Could you guys shave some $$ off of it?

Not sure about that PSU. Don't really know anything about their PSU's. Actually, I didn't even know they made them.

This one will be much better in my opinion.

It's cheaper too

Also, get your Tempest from me =) That will save you another $10 or so.

Oh and there is no operating system listed. That's another $100. You may have to cut back on the motherboard or something since you are already over your $1400 mark.
