New upgrade build - Page 2

Not gunna lie, that thing has crap airflow. By simply switching cases, you can easily drop like 10C from this case, most likely more.

Also, your water system? What water system?

Am I to understand that If I go with smaller SSD that I can still benefit from it's speed even if I store games on my existing drives?

No. You store the games you play the most on the SSD and the rest on an HDD. A 250GB should be enough. I havent filled mine yet and I play A LOT of different games. I have like at least 10 installed on it ATM.

And I chose a 550W for you, but yes I think a 450W would work too.

The only benefit most games will get from an SSD is shorter loading times. Only a few games like DayZ/Arma will actually see noticeable performance increases from an SSD. Most people use SSDs to speed up their boot times and general OS use, and certain disk-intensive games like skyrim/arma. Your CPU and GPU will have a far greater effect on gaming performance.

That PSU is not that great and its also way more then needed for a GTX 760.
Microcenter has such a piss poor selection that getting a PSU from newegg would be a better option

cx600 is a decent power supply
atleast it has working protections
cwt is better than most other psu mfgs

600w for a single gpu is more than enough
760 is under 200w, and the cpu/mobo/drives ect will be under 250w

anything better will cost $50+
