Had a post here a few weeks ago but changed some of the parts out based on some other references and other suggestions, looking to see if this new build will be high end for gaming, and if there is any way to reduce the cost a bit but not hinder performance at all
First PC Build(15 posts)
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/rxYn different mobo based on some other recommendations and reviews and a different power supply based on your input, I did have a Corsair H100 originally but someone else suggested the one I have now, they said it was cheaper and just as good, will look a bit into it and shop around a bit, thanks for the help so far :)
First Trial Build Asus MB is Certified as Windows 8 Compatible
Second Trial Build Intel Core i5 will save you some money
128 GB SSD For System
have a ssd already, a bit bigger than that one so I can fit games and os on there, swapped a few pieces out, don't like the idea personally of liquid coolers in case of leaks, even if there rare and won't be going to windows 8, i enjoy 7 enough as is, thanks for the input so far, its been a lot of help in deciding stuff :)
Windows 8 Certified just means MB is Newer and Drivers are more up-to-date. You Want this.
You may choose Air Cooling. :)
Always choose a larger capacity SSD if Budget will allow !! :)
ah okay, thought it just meant windows 8 in general, have picked out a higher end mobo, i had a seagate in one of my potential builds but someone else i was talking to said samsung one is better, although i'm more inclined to go with your pick heres the updated one as of now - http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/rzeR
