Would http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-769-_-Product suffice for the HDD?

I'm pretty undecided on the case still. There are so many to choose from... what should I look for in a case? I want one that will make installing the heatsink I'm getting easy.

In most cases you'll need to take the motherboard out to install the heat plate on the back of the motherboard if your Heat sink requires it.

Even if you're using the stock heat sink from AMD and the thermal paste that comes on it, it'd be easier if the mobo was either on a sliding tray or if it was out of the case so you can install it.

You should definitely check out this Thermal compound:
Artic Silver 5

As for the case it's really up to you. Mid ATX should be the most sufficient and cost effective way you can go. Probably can get a decent roomy one for 40 - 60.

On Newegg there's 86 choices on Mid ATX Towers from $25 - $50.

Thank you. I like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=haf%20912 and I've updated it as my case on the first page of the thread. I already have some http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ctic%20alumina

I saw http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157244 in another thread. What do y'all think about it compared to the mobo I have listed, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131647 ?

(They mentioned the 1st mobo listed will support the new Bulldozer CPUs from AMD when they come out, in case I want to upgrade to those)

Get this drive
The SATA6.0GB/s obviously doesn't result in any benefit, but you can use normal SATA3.0GB/s connections with no problem. The main point is it's slightly cheaper and the speed isn't any difference vs that WD Blue; in fact I think it's slightly faster if it's on par with the original 7200.12.

Definitely the ASRock 890G over the 870 if you plan to upgrade and could use the features. Just watch out for: ASRock support, VRM quality (i.e. be a bit wary if you overclock an x6 high TDP processor; x4 should be okay)

I'd also say the HEC Blitz and other cheaper cases i.e. from Rosewill, are neck in neck with HAF 912. Similar cooling, similar features, similar build quality also, but a few other advantages such as black interior and lower price.

$10 for a 3.5G of AS5 is overpriced, plus AS5 is old. Get Arctic Cooling MX-2; it slightly outperforms AS5, has no curing time, is not electrically conductive, and costs nearly 50% less.

CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103727

Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131647

Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=haf%20912

Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817709023

CD/DVD Reader http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204

Memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

Heatsink http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-065-_-Product

Hard Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-185-_-Product

Graphics Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo

Still undecided on Hard Drive and Graphics card. To give you a general idea, I want to be able to run World of Warcraft at 60 FPS on Good to Ultra settings in a 25-man raid environment. Open to any suggestions/changes of the current parts, and what you all think I should get for a Hard Drive and Graphics Card. I'm also a little undecided on the case. Let me know if I'm overdoing it on some of the components, as I'm trying to save as much money as I can. I will most likely be building this during the summer time. Thank you!
A decent 550W is enough. I dont know that brand of PSU think a silverstone strider essentials 520 or a seasonic 550 watt would be much better.

Also would change to a 6850.

I think I'll just go with the Samsung Spinpoint, xd. That's what I put on the front page for my Hard Drive. Also,

The build seems good.

And yes, indeed, pick the ASRock mobo. More recent chipset etc.


That PSU seems a lot better - http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory4&reid=110
