Case: Carbide 500R = 100$
Cooling: Corsair H100i = 100$
PSU: Seasonic M12II 620 = 80$
GPU: Gigabyte 7970 GHZ = 400$

that's 1300$ built. you can do the saving by getting the Reference MSI or Gigabyte 7970 and OC it to the GHZ levels and beyond smile.gif

good luck buddy

i second this build. Maybe get 16gb of ram if you do heavy photoshop or video editing. thumb.gif

Only thing I don't like about that build is the Corsair H100i. Just because of the threads I see about them.

But it is your choice.

What's the problem with it?
I've never heard of any problems that are not user caused... Mine works like charm biggrin.gif

H100, the old version had an issue where some of the pumps made too much noise. They fixed it for h100i
Only thing bad i can think of is the fans on h100i are a bit too loud. Just replace them with some GT-15s or SP120 quiets rolleyes.gif

Link? I haven't heard of any pump issues on the new version. Using the software is all optional too. Ofc OP can go for something like water 2.0 or NZXT kraken if his cases supports it

Total Cost of Computer: Just above $1000.00 for Case Only (Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse) not included.

That is if you like Ati/Amd. Personally i love both. So i build AMD/Ati and Intel/Nvidia, etc.

Also i know there isnt a os but i was thinking u would just switch ur ssd/hdd to ur new rig

Check your PM's

Wow. $89.99 shipped for the modular 650W Rosewill CAPSTONE Series. Not bad at all, and then you can get a $15 rebate card.

It's a computer!
