Check to see at what resolution they got 50fps and is it what you will be using?
but for $75 difference, one review on the card I picked specified the game I want it to play, and it was running at 50fps. <br style="color: rgb(13, 41, 117); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; text-align: left; background-color: rgb(242, 242, 242); ">
The Rosewill case is good.
CPU cooler. Imfo. A boxed CPU from AMD and Intel comes with a warrantry, it will keep the CPU within it's thermal specifications. If you use an after market cooler and/or overclock, you void the warrantry, doing iether is at your own risk. I always advise running the system and monitoring the temps and if you really feel it necessary, use a different cooler.
If you use a cheaper cooler, you can achieve almost the same temp drop by removing the thermal pad which is pre applied to the stock heat sink, and using a better TIM, please read this tutorial, thanks to http://www.geekstogo...rface-material/
RAM is OK. Note, if you do decide to use an after market cooler the selected type of RAM, with the very large teeth or fins, can seriously impact the orientation of the cooler or installing or removing the RAM after the cooler is installed.
SSD. I think it is now viable to use an SSD rather than spend $150+ on a mechanical drive that is only worth $50,$60.
They are incredible fast and now very reliable.
Best use, install the OS, games, essential security, browser, and a minimum sized Page file. a second HDD, partitioned for programs, Data and backups including drive image.
Could you install your 1.5TB internally? get a replacement HDD next year when the prices become more normal?
Please don"t order until you have a finalized build.
Have I missed anything?
