I have a HAF 932. It's a good case, but I won't recommend it to you cause I have no idea how much it costs in Australia. In the UK, the HAF 932 is ridiculously over priced.

There's a sub-forum here on OCN just for computer cases: http://www.overclock.net/computer-cases/

I'd sift through the pages and see if you can find any guides, or which cases everyone is talking about.

I would basically say too that instead of XFX get a cheaper Corsair or larger Corsair (or other good brand like Antec etc.) and pay same price. XFX's PSUes are just overpriced. For case I would recommend HAF X or Antec Twelve Hundred. Big cases, which are not heavily overpriced. But must admit your motherboard choice is good. ASRock is not a bad brand, but makes boards at a more fair price than ASUS etc. (I only got an Asus because no other X48 boards are available, in my 5 million people micro country). In terms of CPU cooling I would say that you won't get much for the extra bucks you pay. Hyper 212 Plus is 20 dollars less per degree Celsius. RAMs I would also say to get some good ones with heat sinks so you can overclock. HyperX, XMS3, Dominator, Vengeance or any of the OCZ ones with gold/platinium heat sinks. Just be sure to get the max speeded RAMs you can get. Get a gaming mouse or an SSD instead of all the extra fans.

If he says the ASrock is ok, please consider it too then. I don't remember the details but aren't ASrock and ASUS related? Anyway, everything else I agree w/ except for the ssd. Don't get one.

I completely disagree with the recommendations you have given him.
Firstly a Noctua NHD14s are amazing silent coolers compared to the frio. At that price I'd get megalhems. Secondly, he can afford a good gpu setup I say why not, he will eventually expand beyond one screen, crossfire 6950s are great for that. Third, case is a personal choice, HAF x and HAF 932s are pathetic excuses for cases. That particular case on the other hand is quite nice as evidenced by the multitudes of members that own them, just as the HAF but their more compact and less of an ugly eyesore than the HAF.
I told him to purchase the 750w and the xfx is actually a wonderful psu.
He will overclock and it's good to have a good cooler. You have a good chip you can't compare to others with bad chips. I bought a performa for my 860 Zalman cnps10x performa and it barely got me to 3.8. That heatsinks is capable of 4.0ghz easy on the 860. Frio is nothing great, megalehms are better IMO. But NH D14 is premiere next to the TRUE and cogage. It's worth air cooling right, if your gonna do it do it right.


Sorry to completely bash on you, I apologize ahead of time, but you can see why. I edited large parts of his build going for the best. I even suggested he purchase the u2311h as a good starting monitor.

Also there isn't much proof as far as ibe seen for wireless mice to degrade performance

As you can see there, 6950s are powerful together and a 750 can handle them. Single card IS NOT always better, dual card solutions are quite nice, otherwise sli and crossfire would be a mere gimmick rather than an industry standard. Microstutter and driver problems are GROSSLY OVEREXAGGERATED.

thyanjs guys...
@hokrollo XFX is cheapest PSU brand in Australia.
@cuad HAF 932 costs AUD165..
i think i should get a ssd as it is way faster than a 7200 HDD...
what about the haf 912 case.. isnt dat good?
post #19 of 29
that's fine cause 1) never recommended the frio, 2) took back what I said about graphics cards, 3) never recommended a HAF and 4) only said that there's no need to spend $150 on a PSU.

In conclusion: hell no.
Instead of bashing a first time builder, why not help him and give him some advise on which parts he should get. This is OCN. Hence the title "help new to gaming pc"
