I went with the 4770k because of the deal I could get from Intel since I am a retail employee. The fans, I paid 20 for a 2 pack and wanted it to look nice but since the case is not windowed I do feel I couldve just stayed with the stock fans. Part of me wants to make it look all pretty like other builds on here but when I am looking for the best bang for the buck, I need to cut somewhere.
Oh, the PSU. It's very overkill, but its quality is a good match for a system like this. It's not a PSU that I would ever recommend due to what else is available on the market, but it's still a decent unit.
The PSU was 45 so I cant complain too much but if you can recommend me something I will look for a great deal.
I totally forgot about the Hard Drives, I already have a Samsung 840 Evo 250Gb and 1TB Drive.
I also want to mention, as some of you can probably tell since I mention Halo 2, I dont game that much but want to graduate to it eventually but I game maybe 2 hours out of the month so If I do graduate to PC gaming, I would hope that PSU can handle a better GPU.
