Ok... even a 770 might not fit into my Antec 300 (as I'm reading on the NCIX forums), so I would still be stuck with a lesser casing it seems. To a certain point I could invest right now into a casing (those things can outlast anything you put inside hehe), but that's a little more money. The idea behind getting the Fractal Desing Define R4 was the super quiet rig, but if I was to put my current i7 in it, I'd have no choice but to open one of the 2 top exhaust fan whole, and letting the noise out (which I already found my current rig to be quite noisy, as I said earlier). The Define R4 would require an extra fan to buy.
As for keeping my rig, I do feel the current 6Gb is not enough anymore, maybe 6 years ago it was ok, but not anymore, so indeed adding 3x2 more would pretty much make sense. On that regard, do I have to put the same memory as the first 3 ones? (all I know for sure is that they are 9-9-9-24 1600 ram)
I'm trying to figure out the price this is going to get at. Thing I haven't mentioned is that I don't have the money right now, I'm getting a loan from my father
, he wants to "help" but it has to make a difference for him to be worth the aid. So in a way he knows a casing doesn't help performance per sake, so it's hard for me to juggle what's best for now AND the future.
