My First Rig: Suggestions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey! I am brand new to PC gaming and really any kind of Forum. So... here it goes.
Name's Orian and I built my very first rig two months ago for about $1,000.

I was hoping people could give me tips on what to overclock and what types of aftermarket heatsinks and fans I should buy.

I don't know if my system specs will show up automatically or what, I did add my system on my profile. So here's hoping it works. Thanks guys

For the majority of games, the video card will dictate overall frames per second more than anything else. As far as heatsinks, the best bargain is the Hyper 212+ at $20 shipped. It's often on sale, so look around. It'll allow your chip to run at 5ghz if the chip itself is capable.
