-EDITED 12/21: Changed case, budget upped to $1700-
Hello all (thank you for reading),
I plan to use this machine for graphic design (Acrobat, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, etc.) and gaming (Civ V, Skyrim, Smite, Overwatch in the future). I want 32gb of RAM so I can work comfortably with a ton of stuff open.
I do not need a monitor. I'll be using my ASUS (VS248H-P Black 24" 2ms HDMI LED Backlight)
I don't plan on overclocking, but maybe in the future. It seems like all the overclockable parts are superior to the locked parts even without OCing. Is this correct? There also doesn't seem to be a worthwhile difference in price.
I'm leaning toward the Enthoo Evolv now (before I had the Enthoo Pro). They both seem like great cases, I just don't think I'd utilize the extra space in the Pro. Is there a better mATX case out there for a first time builder?
Any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you!
