  1. Personally, I would go Intel, maybe I'm behind with the current meta, though. Also, I'd look for a Samsung SSD. Finally, from personal experience, I believe Corsair RAM would be a better choice. But honestly for what this machine is being built for, I think your build is fine. Everything listed above is purely personal preference.
  2. What exactly do you mean by occasional gaming? Like what games?
  3. Hi jvlapple, You're probably good getting 2 Sticks of 4 GB RAM right now and upgrading to 4 sticks later because 16 GB is more than enough RAM. \ As for the SSD, honestly I have to agree with Sam here. Transcend is not the best and Samsung currently is one of the best if not the best on the market right now. Its worth the extra money. You can find cheap HDD's too so that shouldn't be much of a problem. Also you may need a disk drive to install Windows unless you're getting the USB install version. Lastly, the stock processor fan may not be good enough considering the case is so small. But I may be wrong.
  4. That's awesome man, props to you for being able to do that.
  5. Oh wow, where did you get that case made?
  6. Alright I guess that should do then. Just don't overclock. Sent from my XT1049 using Tapatalk
  7. I actually think you may need more power. Plus you should never skimp out on the PSU. Sent from my XT1049 using Tapatalk
  8. Also you could buy a smaller SSD and use it as a boot drive and buy a bigger HDD for data like movies and such. Sent from my XT1049 using Tapatalk
  9. I play it. It's a really good game. If you made a story you should do something very realistic or believable. Sent from my XT1049 using Tapatalk
  10. All of these ideas are fantastic. I can't wait to see what happens.
  11. Giveaways are difficult without sponsors. I really don't know how to promote it. I remember back when i joined it was because of a giveaway, but barely anyone actually stayed around after that. Hmm. The prizes for active forum participants sounds promising but the question is how many people will stay after the giveaway. Thanks for joining geforce.
  12. SAM! I know the forum is very inactive, you should try to promote it. I don't know how or even if you want to, but I really liked this forum back when it was 'active'. So please man, if there's anything you can do, or that anyone else can do, do it or let me know because I don't wanna see this forum die out.
  13. I own the White Corsair C70 and it's a beast. The window does have fan mounts on it but seriously you could just go to tapplastics.com and grab a 1/4 in. PlasDrill bit and a custom cut 1/8 in. acrylic sheet. The original window is 33.5 cm by 31.5 cm so like 12.5 in. x 13.2 in. but I would get 14 in x 14 in just in case there's an issue.

  14. That looks like a great build, I mean it's on CPCR so yeah. All I would recommend is a different case and get Windows 7. Windows 8 is trash.
  15. I'd say it's a physical problem. Like the cord or cans are broke. Fool around with some stuff, update your drivers, look at your sound settings and if everything seems normal then it's probably broke :/
