Ok i will drop the extra cooler and use the aftermarket one.
So that is €32 less, I will remove the ssd and get a hdd 1TB.
But then im still far over budget I try to get a decent gaming pc for €650

I have 2 external HHD. I will put in a HHD instead of a SSD if it is cheaper.

I dont know anything about stockcooler or aftermarket cooler and their differences.
Are they cheaper?

Thanks for your reply
Stock coolers come free with your CPU chip and they do a pretty good job of cooling your CPU. Mine remains steady at around 30 degrees celcius on idle and rarely goes over 50 degrees unless I'm stress testing or doing some major multitasking.

Using a HDD is a much cheaper solution to cost cutting than using an SSD.

You don't need a SSD. Get a decent 7200RPM HDD instead.

Besides that, you don't need an aftermarket cooler. Stock coolers tend to do quite well. Unless you plan on overclocking?

Hello everyone,

First of all I apologize for my bad English.
Next month I want to build my own computer. Here are some of the things I want it comply to
- I will use it mainly to play games and photo editing.
- The games I like to play are the Call of Duty series and Total War series.
- Want to use my pc for 3-5 years at least so it can run games in the future (doesn’t have to run the games on high performance)
- And at last my budget is €700,- max (if possible €600,-)

I have done some research over the past few days and here is what I found:

Case: CM Storm Midi Tower Storm Enforcer ATX €70
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 iZ77, SATA600 RAID €128
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz) €210
RAM: Corsair 2x4GB, DDR3, PC12800, CL9, Vengeance (red) €38
HDD: Seagate Harddisk 3.5" 1TB, SATA600, 7200rpm €68
Power supply: Corsair Voeding CX750 750W €80
Graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti €167

Brings a total of €761

As you can see it exceeds my budget. So my question is:
What can I change without losing too much.
And also I did like to know if I would buy these things would they be compitable?
This will be my first time building a pc so it can happen that I missed something.
Thanks a lot!
