Thats water cooling right? I might actually look into that. How is it cost wise?

I would recommend the thermalright silver arrow or the noctua dh-14. Those air coolers are on par and perform very well. If your on a tight budget take a look at the CM 212+, im not entirely sure how it fairs against the Mugen 2 but maybe someone can shed some ligh on that. nice build and good luck

I'm also in the "not sure if they are worth it" camp in regards to SSD's. I've been thinking of pulling the trigger on a Vertex 3 240GB for a few days now but $550 is so steep for a HD...

Sdd is unnecessary though, you could have had better gaming experience if you have gone with a better graphics card instead of that ssd.

From what i hear the Mugen 2 Rev b is a bit better that the CM212+. thoguh it can be almost double the price.

The consensus seems to be that they are good PSUs. I just never recommend a product if I know nothing about it.

I was just not sure about the brand. I used to have a XFX 775 board back in the day and I never had a problem with it, but I know they had a bad run of motherboards, and then there was all the crappy Nvidia cards they put out that essentially got them kicked out of Nvidia's camp for good. Well, that and they started selling ATI cards.

Personally I would get an extra 4 gigs of RAM, every time I'm studying I use around 4-4.5 gigs of RAM because of all the Chrome tabs, word docs and power points I have open; however for gaming 4 is enough.

Your PSU is ONLY not recommended because of it's non modular and XFX's somewhat poor and inconsistent after sales service, so with things like RMAs they MIGHT cause some headaches.

If you plan on doing heavy gaming with maxed out graphics then you should have looked in to a more powerful GPU.

I'm only using 76.2 GB, and that's everything but games, videos, photos, and music. Microsoft office opens in less time than you can close the splash screen. Adobe stuff actually opens fast. Everything just...loads

Get a 120 GB or less.
