I finally built the build, I ordered for my wife over her tax return. And now, its my turn to get mine built. I'm getting my tax return (more than I expected I was going to get). So, with this build the budget ranges ~$1300-1500, and I'll be ordering sometime in March. I don't need a monitor or any peripherals and will need the OS. And as always, I did my research on the build before I posted this.
My concerns with it so far:
The case. Should I go full or stay with the mid? I noticed a lot of people seem to go back and forth or is it my preference?
The next concern, the graphics card. Should I up it to a 7970 Ghz edition (I don't know the differences between the 7970 and 7970Ghz) or go to a 680?
Finally, if I wanted to add case fans. How do those work? Just plug and go, or do you need a fan controller?
