Thanks. I certainly do like that cooler. Nice and quiet.

If I dropped the SSD, what'd you recommend spending the extra ~$70 on?

In the requirements, he said for for this rig to be quiet. The stock cooler is far from quiet.

I know Amazian. this guy seems a little "stubborn", the stock cooler might be too loud for him. he wanted a quiet one, he got one.

Should be Under-Budget... and A BEAST! can handle any game, at max settings i think... (maybe but probably.)

Wow, that's really under budget!

If you dropped the 16GB RAM to 8GB and dropped that SSD, what'd you recommend doing with the extra ~$115?

Depends, do you want something extra in specific? if not, we can upgrade stuff in it or add things.

if you know how to install a "water cooled" fan instead of the air ones, i would do that. then get some case LEDs lol. these are extras though.

Thanks for taking the time to write all of that! I definitely am liking that card. It has some good reviews.

If I got rid of that SSD (he doesn't really care for one) and replaced this case with an s340, what'd you recommend spending the extra ~$80 on?

Yeah, he won't need one. He's told me that a HDD is enough.

A wireless card would be nice. He also needs lights and case fans.
