    Drop the case to a Fractal Design Arc Midi. The 650D is overpriced an unnecessary. Otherwise, get the 600t.
    Change the graphics card out for MSI's Twin Frozr II series. It possesses better cooling, and you can overclock it yourself if you wish.

    I'm stuck on choosing a graphic card. MSI's Frozr II series, most of em are overclocked GPUs and I don't really wish to overclock it. Any advice? Or should I quit bitching about it? xD

    To be honest, even if you get a Twin Frozr, and it is already OC, you have the factory warranty. There is nothing to worry about there

    My friend's dad built his computer a long time ago. They still use it to this day and he's using a NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 to run their games. This thing runs SWTOR like its nothing. Anyway to shed light on this? I don't wanna get the GTX 560 Ti if its not much better than other available options.

    Alright, so.. I'll be finally buying all of these parts in 2 weeks (next paycheck), and with what I've gathered this is what I've chosen.

    I THINK the graphic card isn't compatible with the Motherboard, correct me if I'm wrong. I can't find any PCI Express 2.1 slots in details of the product. But guess I thought it be worth a shot to future proof me for other games.

    Drop Windows 7 Ultimate and get Home Premium since 99.99% of people don't use the extra 4 features it comes with. Take that money and get a 7970 when it releases in a few weeks. Even if you -want- those features for some silly reason, all but the RAM ceiling can be had with free open-source programs.
