Gaming build
Hey everyone,

I haven't built a pc in years and need some help with a solid build.

Pc will be used mostly for gaming, diablo 3 maxed would be nice.

budget 1500-1800 including monitor.

Leaning toward these, still need help deciding motherboard and videocard/cards selection. I'm not set on anything so I'm open to any changes. I'd like to overclock so good cooling and easily modified parts would be nice since I've been out of the loop for awhile.

RE: Gaming build
You seem to have everything pretty down packed. My only suggestion is to remember to get low-profile ram (no or little heatsinks) so that your cooler can fit. And take a look at the mainstream or high-end gaming builds for recommendations on mobos and video cards. Theres also a best video cards for your money guide if you want more options to browse through.

Awesome thanks for your help. I believe that ram should be fairly low profile. Would these 2 make the build complete and compatable.
