- Asus P8P67 LE
- Any Dual Channel 2x2GB 1333 RAM
- Gigabyte GTX460 1GB DDR5 OC
- Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
- Seasonic M12II 620w Bronze
- Cooler Master HAF 912
First of all, welcome to OCN.
Nice selection on parts here, you will absolutely love the HAF 912. I just built my good friend a computer during the black friday sale and he went with that case. I have previously owned the HAF 932, and although the 912 is mostly plastic, it looks to have great durability. Also, I haven't really kept up with the i5 line, even though I own one (silly, right?). Well, I bought mine because it was a good deal here on the forums as a combo deal, but I would definitely recommend looking into the i7 line as they are great overclockers. I used to have 3x 500GB Spinpoint F3's and even though I only had them a short time, they were probably the fastest / most reliable spinning hard drives I ever owned. An SSD would compliment your system nicely as well, even if you get a small one like a 32/64GB just as an OS drive.Edited by Lysdexik - 1/13/11 at 7:06am
