    Ah, then you can get a nicer case than the "good enough" options I mentioned.

    The Phanteks Enthoo Pro is probably what I would point to, based on your focus on good cooling. There are some nice...

    What's your budget and what are your priorities for the case? Silence vs. great airflow, side panel window, style and so on.

    Oh, and is it an ATX mid-tower or some other form factor?

    Well, a nearly equivalent system can be had for less than 650, so you are paying quite a bit more. Other than that it's a solid system and overclockers.co.uk do look like they know what they're...

    It's really not that bad, as long as you don't demand ultra settings.

    The SteamVR and Oculus Rift are both 1080x1200 per eye, which even at 90FPS is less demanding than 1920x1080 60FPS. The...

    There are no rumors about a 960 Ti, so we don't know anything.

    There were rumors about a 960 Ti a long time ago, but they did not pan out.

    GTX 960 as well as AMDs R9 380. The latter is somewhere between slightly and somewhat faster than the 960, but does tend to cost slightly more and also draws some more power (though it's not as bad...

    The Oculus Rift's price is going to be amplified by coming with a controller, which many people wouldn't need anyway. So that's $50ish in the other direction (unless the Vive also ends up shipping...

    Right, it's not the end of the world, just annoying.


    That's odd. Those prices are a lot higher than I'm seeing.

    That's a huge exaggeration. And it would be the wattage/amperage that would drop, not the voltage.

    Water cooling is not necessary for CPU overclocking. I'd rather have a good air cooler than most water cooling kits; air cooling is generally quieter and cheaper for equivalent cooling performance.
