Heyo Ladies and Gentlemen I have been looking to build my own computer recently, and after around 4 months of solid research, i've come to the conclusion to build one. i will probably be building it either in 2-3 weeks, or when windows 8 comes out. I will be using this computer for school work, internet surfing, everyday stuff, and gaming (mid-high settings), but i want this thing to LAST. i am buying all my parts from wvw. pccasegear.com, since i live in Australia. i already have a graphics card (gigabyte GTS 450 OC) but i'm buying a different one for this computer. (ill probs give the 450 to a friend or something.) my budget is maximum $1,400 so here is the list: Case: CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer - $99.00 Extra Case Fan: CoolerMaster MegaFlow 200 Red - $19.00 CPU: AMD FX 4100 4-Core Processor - $139.00 CPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Pro Rev 2 - $17.00 Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon HD 6850 DirectCU V2 - $169.00 HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ - $139.00 SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD - $119.00 Memory (RAM): G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 - $55.00 Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard - $109.00 Optical Drive: Lite-On IHAS324 24x DVDRW - $25.00 Card Reader: Shintaro Internal Card Reader 3.5" OEM - $19.00 Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular - $99.00 Monitor: LG E2341V-BN 23inch LED Widescreen Monitor - $155.00 Mouse: Logitech M705 Marathon Mouse - $69.00 MousePad: Razer Sphex - $19.00 Keyboard: Cherry Infinity USB Keyboard - $35.00 OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1 OEM - $99.00 Total: $1,385.00 i had a few concerns with this build though, firstly whether the CPU cooler will fit the mobo, and also if the RAM is compatible. if you have read this far, i commend you. please leave any advice you want to give, it would be appreciated.
