Finding the H700 for sale in Canada is hard. It's $200+ on Amazon.ca I like the H500 as long as I can get the 2x 240mm fans in the front.

Did you have problems with cable management?

I wasn't aware of that with Seasonic thank you. I was looking at the Corsair RMX PSU's and was debating on those. Seasonic vs Corsair?

If you had to choose betwen the H500 and H700 black/blue NZXT what'd you go with? The client is leaving it up to me....he just wants blue/black.

I don't mind the list it helps haha I originally looked at the X470 but was told it's more of an enthusiast board, and go with a b450. Client wants a good gaming rig, 1700$CAD, wants to do VR eventually so I went with the 2070 GPU. As far as OC, he never requested it, so i never took it into consideration.

Why the SeaSonic PSU over the EVGA?

If I have a Dark Rock Pro 3, I could use that I suppose. I was trying to find a 240 or 280mm cooler to place in the front of that case.

Winner! lol Thanks for the info, and the graph to show what you were talking 'bout. I think the 2600x will be best for what this customer is wanting; a gaming rig that can handle VR. Feedback on the GPU? Or am i good there? thank you

Mark can you run down why you chose the 2600X rather than the 2600. I see cheaper memory which is great. Why that specific PSU? Thank you

I read that intel was best for gaming, and that's what this client wants to do; so I went with the i5. However the 1st gen Ryzen and a 2070 would do just as much at a lower cost. And yes Intel is expensive right now in $CAD. Thanks Carrier.

I've been on the fence with a 1070/2070 or a vega 64. But i have read and heard that freesync cards require a lot of power and overheat.

WOW. Your fans cost more than my builds. Your 2x of your RAM purchases could do a build. But all in all just WOW. Badass looking build. I've seen Pauls' Hardware do his build with this case and I've been wanting to. Once I hit the lottery maybe haha Sweet build. Why just a 1080ti though? That's my only question +1

The prices for 1070to vs 2070 are comparable I'm aware of that thank you. If I use extensions on that PSU it would be ok.

Thanks Imperious. I've seen Corsair fans I believe witha blue ring around 'em. Could you help me swap those out instead of the rosewill fans. AND is that PSU good if I wanted to add blue cablemod cables?

Why the 1070 8GB. Good enough for future Vr gaming?

Yes, Canadian prices are a bit higher haha. I'm not worried about RGB. I might get Corsair RGB Pro RAM down the road. As far as prices in CAD$, would you still swing for 2070, or 1070ti/1080 for high/ultra graming.

Thoughts on this Gigabyte. It's the cheapest 2070. I'm looking at prices of 1070ti vs 2070 and the 1070ti are almost more expensive :/
