I have already bought the first four parts on the list but I have a few questions:
1) For the ram, I bought the one with CAS latency 16 but there are other brands with the same speed with CAS latency 15.
Should I return the ram I have and get one with CAS latency 15?
2) Secondly, Which one would be a better one? The MSI gtx 1060 6gb OC or the PNY gtx 1060 6gb?
I just want the one with better cooling and less noisy. The performance of the two is about the same.
3) Could someone recommend me a mid-tower case that is like the Cooler Master Box 5 but smaller? (please note I am buying the parts from Micro Center). Most of the features of the Cooler Master Box 5 are great except for the button. When I pressed the button while visiting Micro Center, the power button was a bit stiff and I did not like the sound.
I prefer cases with a spring loaded or little to no sound button push. (I never knew that I could be so picky n the case's button. Weird.....)
The most I will spend on the case is about $70 (I could go over a bit but not much)
Thanks for reading. :-)
