So in the new year (yes i know its still a way off!) i plan on building a new air cooled rig. Im slowly getting money together so wanted to see if i could put a list together. Some stuff i already have, some stuff I'll plan on getting in the next few months, some stuff i wont get till Jan next year!
A little about what i want to build. I want a prominently black setup, as black as i can get. Maybe with a hint of either red,blue,green or dark purple. I want to be able to upgrade this fairly easily over the next 4/5 years. Hopefully going onto water cooling. Over clocking doesn't really interest me at this present moment in time. Having a quiet stable rig does! I will use this for Gaming and General computer use. I don't really play high end games, im an eve online freak and plan on playing the new star wars mmo when it comes out. I am on a budget, But things that will last years IE case, psu and fans im willing to spend a bit more on!
Ok here goes!
Case - Haf X full tower?***
Fans - No idea!***
PSU - Corsair AX850***
GPU - HD 6870 (already owned)
Ram - Corsair XMS3 8gb (already owned)
SSD - Gonna Get in January
HD - No idea, has to be at least 1TB
Mobo - Gonna get in January
CPU - Gonna get in January
CPU cooler - NH-D14? but the fan colors put me off!
Im open to any suggestions and recommendations, nothing is set in stone!
*** = things id like to get in the next couple of months!
