Also with those big heatsinks, you have to watch what kind of RAM you put in there because they will cover the RAM slots (at least 1 or 2 of the slots), so you'd want to go with RAM that's low profile and doesn't have a big fancy heatsink on the modules (you didn't say what RAM you were going to use). If you're not overclocking, or only looking for MAYBE 100 - 200 MHz, you could probably get away with something like a Hyper 212 and it wouldn't block your RAM slots.

If you want an H220 and can wait maybe a week, you can use the pre-order feature (which means they're sold out) on NCIX and they'll ship it when they get more. That's how I got mine, and I got lucky because I kept checking the website for like a week and it kept saying it was sold out, so I put in a pre-order and it actually shipped 2 days later, and the site still said it was sold out. I think they have so many people ordering, they can't even put them in stock on the site. But it shouldn't take long - a couple days to a week tops I'd say. Don't forget to use the price matcher. I just pasted in the Xoxide link on the NCIX price matcher and got mine for $134.99 (I believe it was that, or maybe $139.99).
I don't plan on overclocking and the RAM I use are 2 kingston 4 gigs. I bought them a long time ago and they still work pretty great. I got them for 20 bucks last time, it was a steal. But I might just go with a air cooler. Honestly I am working on a budget and but I want to get some really good stuff, and just switch out the graphics card later down the road. I wanted the 8350 because I thought it was the best AMD had to offer for processors, but I just don't know.

The only difference between the 8350 and the 8320 is the binning and clock speeds. They are both the same exact die, but the 8350 is binned a little better (less imperfections in the silicon), which means that it can generally handle higher clock speeds. Due to supply and demand though, sometimes 8320's are actually 8350's that have been "rebranded" so to speak - they needed to make X number of 8320's, but there weren't enough of them binned, so they downclock an 8350 and sell it as an 8320. That doesn't mean you'll get that lucky necessarily, but it happens. There are people in the AMD forums here on OCN with 8320's that are overclocked to speeds that make some of the 8350 owners jealous. Is it worth it to save just $25? That's up to you and depends on your budget and what kind of performance requirements you have, but for the most part you probably won't see a difference between them except in price.

The 8350 is the best AMD has right now (without getting into server processors), but in all honestly I think an 8320 would do just fine. Especially if you're not planning to overclock. Pick up an 8320 and a Hyper 212. I wouldn't go under 650W for the PSU. Definitely don't go down to 500W - 500 might suit your needs now, but probably not later. You don't want to have to buy another PSU if you upgrade next year or something. The little bit of savings going from 650W down to 500W wouldn't be justified if/when you need more power later on. Also, definitely go with a SeaSonic PSU. They are arguably the best in terms of reliability, and they aren't priced higher than most other brands.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151106 this one is $90.

Will that fan work?

[URL=http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1601253[/URL]
Or is that better?

If links don't show it's between a Noctua 6 dual heatpipe and a cooler master hyper 212

If you're on a tight budget though and maybe that's why you chose the video card you did, then yeah, I'd drop down to the 8320 instead of the 8350 and maybe forget about overclocking for now and just get a Hyper 212 fan or something for like $20. That'll maybe get you a 200 MHz overclock on the 8320 and free up a good ~$125 (with the $25 savings on the 8320 over the 8350) extra towards a better video card. I wouldn't compromise on the PSU though if it were me, because then you'll have to buy another one later if you start adding on to the system.

If you shave $125 off with those downgrades, and put the $130 for the 7770 towards a different card, you'll have $255 to get a GTX 660 or a 7870.
Thank you. You and Toyz have been such great help. Not only have you helped me with purchasing better items, but they are cheaper from what I was going to get originally. You guys are great thanks. biggrin.gifthumb.gif

If you're not overclocking, it really doesn't matter at all. You could even use the stock fan that comes with the processor if you wanted to, but I'd look for something a little quieter than the stock fan for sanity's sake. The Hyper 212+ in your first link will do just fine.

No problem man wink.gif

First builds (or first in a while) are always tough. The hardest part is figuring out what you want to do and getting your components budgeted (and balanced) out right. My first build was a mess. I spent $1200 and got all kinds of stuff I didn't need, and needed stuff I could have had on that budget because everything was disproportionate and unbalanced. I ended up with parts that were way beyond what was necessary, and other parts that were very weak and caused my performance to suffer. I'm on my second build now, 2 years later, and learned a lot from the mistakes in my first build. Mistakes were made in my new build as well (I could have saved $150 on various things that didn't end up working out, and could have got a way better video card with that money), but far less so than last time. The budget was a little higher this time too though.

Anyway, glad to have helped out, and enjoy the new build biggrin.gif

Actually I almost forgot, do you guys think there is a better tower then the one I chose? USB 3.0 and cheaper is prefered.

I was going to suggest an 8320.. It's worth it especially if you're running stock or if you're not planning for a max 24/7 OC, I.E 4.2GHz or something. Which i'd suggest something like that. smile.gif
Get a 7850 2GB just for the performance difference, the extra vRAM is nice. Grab a 650W PSU also, Corsair, Seasonic or Silverstone are great brands. Gold isn't worth the premium over silver honestly either, bronze are still good too! Always a good buy smile.gif

If this is your first system I'd suggest a Hyper 212+ or similar, Hyper T4 is great too for a tad more. I'd possibly suggest a H220 down the road once the OP has some experience under his belt with system building.

Nice suggestions, I think I am gonna get a 8320, but the sapphire that I listed is that one bad? And sorry I didn't mean like the whole tower itself, I meant the computer case.
EDIT: As I was you did show me to cases, thank you.
