Right now I'm playing a little thought experiment to design a cheap and functional gaming setup built on a relatively tight budget that offers good performance and has mild potential for overclocking.
I'd like to know the general opinion of the following build. Note, the splitter cable is needed as the case has two fans and the Mobo only has one Case Fan connector.
