Project 'Boarding School' In Progress. - Page 2

^ forgot to add the case, I choose also the silverstone temjin 08, for its innovative design removable motherboard tray, black interior, good airflow, careful cable management & accessories especially the usb 3.0 to usb 2.0 adapter, in case the motherboard of choosing does not have this header thing in it thumb.gif

for the ssd I forgot to add since I'm using mushkin 120GB chronos non deluxe, this would be my recommendation, it does not have the 5000 hr bug, which crucial M4 ssd users is having.

- Get a cheaper power supply (maybe a TX650M); also consider a smaller power supply since 650W is kind of overkill for your current setup
- The stock CPU cooler is sufficient since that processor can't overclock
- My vote goes to the Silverstone case
- Corsair XMS' will suffice

With the money saved from the CPU cooler and power supply...
- I strongly suggest beefing up your graphics card; depending on your budget, here are some options: HD 6870, GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores
- Grab yourself an SSD

I would also suggest switching to a HD 6870, GTX 560Ti, or 560ti 448 rather than SLI 550s. I really like SLI as way to get a lot of performance at a low price but if sli doesn't work in one of the games you want to play a single 550 won't get you very far. A single card may also be better in a small build.
