Wow, you guys reply fast
Preferably, I want to buy parts from:
Case - I have chosen to buy an Antec case because I have assumed the case would operate about as quietly as the impressively-silent, Antec Performance One cases operate. Should I buy the Antec Nine Hundred instead? Or can anyone specifically recommend a case that can quietly and sufficiently cool my parts?
Motherboard - I had wanted to purchase the cheapest P67 motherboard that supports NVIDIA SLI. I had thought I should either buy the Gigabyte BA-P67A-UD4-B3 or the Asus P8P67 Pro (Rev.3.0). Searching through forum posts, I had concluded that both motherboards are great, and that I should buy the cheaper motherboard. Should I buy the Asus P8P67 Pro (Rev.3.0) instead?
RAM - I had wanted to purchase reliable, fast RAM. Can anyone specifically recommend alternatives?
HDD - I had chosen the "Western Digital Caviar Black 1000GB (1TB) SATA3 7200RPM" because I had thought it had been the best HDD available from the sites I have listed for its price. Should I buy Samsung Spinpoint F3 for the same price from Newegg.ca?
PSU - Can anyone recommend a better-bang-for-buck PSU from one of the sites I have listed?
@Case: LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black
-it has 4 stock fans (3 x 140mm, 1 x 120mm), tooless installation from the PSU to the fans and motherboard.....
-not good for water cooling, stock speed fans might need adjusting and afaik doesn't have on/off switch for the LED fans so you should buy a fan controller that offers control for LEDs as well or buy the cheaper K60 version which is basically the same minus the fact that the fans don't have LEDs and the no side panel window (for some it's a plus).
@Motherabord, idk abot SLI as i never considered it, so i won't comment on this matter. But i'm going to say that both Gigabyte and Asus mid and high end boards are very good.
@RAM: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB)
-1,5 V, low profile heatsinks allowing maximum compatibility with after market CPU coolers
-none that i can think of right now, but it's weird it doesn't have any reviews on the egg
@HDD. My personal opinion is yes, you should buy the Spinpoint F3.
@PSU: to name a few
(Thermalright is not on newegg.ca? Strange...)
