Ok, title says it. Currently thinking about building or buying a custom. Here's essentially what I'm looking at:
here's my questions:
1) the case, HAF XB, seems like a good case, good style and easy to work with, but there have been issues with grounding and frying some hdd's. Thus, I'm not entirely sold on it, especially as a first time builder. Thus, are there any cases, mid tower max (don't have the extra room where my comp will go) that would be easy to work with, good fans, etc.. hopefully around $100, but it could be more if it's good.
2) also considering another monitor, currently have an old 24" 1080i that's still very nice, but I wouldn't mind a 1080p led and using the older one for surfing or movies, etc... while gaming. So the question, is the gtx660 ti good enough to handle both or should I be thinking about a better gpu or maybe adding a 2nd video card.
3) In light of the first time, does anyone have any experience with cyberpowerpc.com. There overall price seems reasonable, basically about $100ish to build it, or less if you are willing to wait a week or 2 longer. Are they good? Meaning, do they build a good pc or just throw it together and ship it? Do they have good customer service? What about ibuypower? Same questions. Or are their any others that I should be looking at.
edit: main use will be gaming, movies, etc... Guild Wars 2, SWTOR, Skyrim, Assassins Creed, and a few shooters.
