you make a really good point. makes me wanna kill myself lmao
I have $200 to spend, so you're right money is a concern here.
My plan was 2x2GB RAM, and an H70.
total cost: ~$200 CAD
I'm not sure what else I could better spend my money on really, other than H70/Spinpoint 1TB Raid 0.
Which would run me ~200 CAD
I also could ditch the H70 and invest in a custom loop for WC, however my current case wouldn't really support watercooling (I could use the front HDD bays for a 240 rad, but this case isn't really one for modding, it's pretty cheap.
I have a Cooler Master HAF932 that I could use, but my main problem is that I have to put it on the desk (right beside where i sit and where my monitor and keyboard are) and the case itself is too big to even stand there.
So WC seems like it's out of the question, even though I have $200 CAD to spend.
The H70, as I've heard performs close to the high end air coolers here and I can buy that for ~84$ shipped.
Leaves me with ~100ish to spend on something else, like RAM, or a HDD.
What are your thoughts?
