Thread Starter 
hey guys, im getting my new gaming pc soon, probably next months. heres the parts list:

Case – coolermaster haf 912 advanced $107

CPU – Intel 2500K $215

Mobo – Gigabyte Z68XP UD3 $134

RAM – G.skill 8gb ripjawf3-12800cl9d-8gbxlmhz $55

GPU – Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 $281

PSU – Antec HCG 620 $99 should i get HCG 520 to save $20?

HDD – WD Blue 1GB $107 is black worth the extras?

CPU COOLER – Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO $39

Monitor – LG E2251T-BN 21.5 inch $133

Total: $1171

2 things are need to decide on:
should i get a HCG 520 psu to save $20? is getting WD Black worth the extras?

and 1 little question:
it seems like there will be less than 2cm between bottom of my case and the floor, is that enough gap for the psu fan to suck in enough air ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers smile.gif

i just want to add a quick comment here. you have chose a HAF 912 for 107 dollars. well...

the HAF 922 is for $99.99 at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197

the HAF 932 is for 129.99 at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160

iam pretty sure these two cases are better than the HAF 912 xD
plus for the amount of money you are spending on the graphics card, you can find a good, used GTX 580 and have a better card than the 7850

hope this is some useful information, good luck

As for your PSU intake question, if you are placing you rig on a table or hardwood, go ahead an intake through the bottom, but if it is carpet, I would not have it intake out of the bottom.
