Upgrading Computer: i7 930 Finalization - Page 2

@Accelerator
I have definitely looked into unlocking the 465 into a 470. A reason why I planned to get the card.

@cory1234
Any recommendations for a new case? Lian Li cases look very simple and clean, but they're expensive. Not sure if I plan to SLI in the future. I'd probably sell the GPU to get a different one.

Why spend $287 on a GTX265 when you can get a GTX470 for $223? I know the cooler gets a lot of attention on that GTX265, but from what I've read it doesn't overclock all that well in general. Anyways, just my .02, but I'd get the GTX470 and save some money.

PSU: Corsair HX750w $139
CPU Cooler: Corsair H70 $92
Case: NZXT Phantom White ATX Full Tower $140

I'm in the final stages of planning for my new computer.
Any suggestions, thoughts, or changes to the build would be very helpful.
Thanks for your time!
That build looks great, and a H70 for 92 bucks?!?! wow, for that price, that is pretty good Also, for that price, i think a gtx 470 is a better buy over that gtx 465 GE. even tho they are guaranteed to unlock to 470 (pretty much), doesnt mean they will oc well as a gtx 470

As for a case, i would recommend a HAF 932, since that NZXT case doesnt look like it will have good airflow :/

And SNSD FTW!!! WOOT FANY SARANGHAE!!!! :3
