So I may have mentioned before, I just recently built a new PC. I went from an Intel Core2Quad Processor to a 3rd generation i5, and at the core, it’s plenty quick. I had to upgrade my motherboard for obvious reasons, and doubled up my RAM. (from 8 to 16GB, although, the guy at Microcenter gave me PC1333, I can live with it for now) For financial reasons, I held out on a new case, and video card. I think I have narrowed my case to either the Fractal Design Define R4, and the Antec P280.
Both have very minimalistic design, and it’s more geared toward’s quietness. Tom’s Hardware recently had a quite case round up, and the Define came up on top. I just can’t forget Antec though, as I had an SX1030B in the past, and I absolutely loved it. I had to let it go since I received a Thermaltake Xaser III courtesy of Thermaltake. I looked at some of their (Thermaltake) offering’s and it was too loud in style.
In any ‘case’, I hope to pick up either one of the above listed cased on my short list, and then move on to picking out a video card.
