Original post below. So I decided to have a little fun here. I've got a blank wall above my desk that backs to an unfinished laundry room (meaning studs are exposed). I could mount a PC to the wall and run power, video cables, etc behind the wall easily. So I am thinking of something like this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1460322/gallery-wall-mount-rig-maxxplanck-mini-completed
That said, I watched a couple reviews on the XFX Radeon R9 295X2 8GB Core Edition Video Card and it is a little loud for an open case. I was also hoping to keep the footprint to a minimum, so would like a quieter graphics card without liquid cooling if possible.
Also, review on the MSI Z97-GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard mention low sound volume issues with the onboard audio. I would rather avoid an additional sound card. So any thoughts there?
Please suggest a build. I only have one thing in mind:
Company of Heroes 2. Do not go by their specs. Do a little research. Here's a couple starting points:
Location: USA - Chicago
Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): None, just computer
Operating System required: Windows 7 or 8.1
As small a form factor as possible. Don't want desk or under-desk clutter.
No used parts.
Thanks all. I only have time to waste on one game. I love COH2. Tried first person shooters, but I get motion sick :(
