Potential build, need advice - Page 2

post #11 of 23
If you want true modular go for the AX + the sleeving is nicer IMO. That is the one regret I have... I wish I went with an AX PSU.

HX850 is listed as modular. Are there different definitions or levels of "modular-ness"?

Sleeving isn't a big concern for me. Don't really need the inside to look good, and cable management is kinda made easy with the CM HAF 932 case that I plan to get

Fully modular you can detach all cables, which is stupid IMO because you'll always need the 24pin and 8 pin power. Just get the HX.

Ordered 850HX last night.
Updated the first post with little changes.
My problem now is RAM: any suggestions? (Take into account that the Hyper 212+ will block the first RAM slot)
8GB preferred

Updated the first post. Due to budget crunchies, I'm bailing out on the CM HAF 932 (there was a guy selling it for $140 on craigslist, but I was too late)

My questions:
-Are there any mid tower cases that can easily fit the Hyper 212 Plus? (currently looking at the Antec 900 Two V3)
-Any RAM suggestions? (4GB would be fine, 8GB preferred)

Keep a lookout on Craigslist. I got my HAF 932 for $70. I got the Craigslist Notifier app (Android) to keep tabs for me and I got lucky.

If waiting on CL isn't for you, sale season should be coming up soon. What price range are you looking at for your case?

I've been told I don't need a full tower for this build. Can you verify this? And if this is true, I'm open to mid tower suggestions. (Currently looking at Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 and CM HAF 922)

Price range - hopefully under $150

Case: CM 690II Advanced $89.99 with $10 MIR (big whoop, haha)

Memory (today only price): CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) $74.99

They also have a combo deal on the memory and the MSI motherboard you were looking at, but it shows you ordered the board already

Just ordered that RAM, had like 4 people telling me to get it
And don't worry about that combo. I bought the GFX and mobo in a combo that saved me around $70 :3

Updated first post. Decided to add a hard drive into this build.

All I need to order now is the case, HDD, and DVD/CD drive. Any last-minute comments or concerns?
