Hey, I've got a Gaming PC build, and I have all the necessary parts for it, and need suggestions on the extras like case fans, CPU coolers, etc. I don't want suggestions for a video card though, as I'm not going to get a GPU yet, I'm gonna stick with the integrated CPU graphics. Also, if you can keep the build under $1000, that would be fantastic. Another thing, I really currently need enough to run games from the 2012-2013 era. Nothing needed to run GTA V.

Integrated graphics... sucks. And that's it.

So..my i7-> i5-4690K, Z97 is nicer, get a custom cooler (212 EVO), DIMMs are a bit too OP, SSD would be nice.

I had a build fully saved, but I wanted to know exactly how I should go about cooling and stuff like that. I also don't want an SSD right now,just for the reason that I don't absolutely need one. My integrated graphics on my current PC (Gateway DX4375G-WU20 w/ 6GB RAM, AMD A6-5200 APU, 500GB HDD) runs great and efficiently. I also am sort of a beginner, and I never really understood what DIMM was. I also had the Cooler Master 212 EVO CPU cooler on my previous saved build.

With out a GPU it's not much of a gaming rig. You could do without 16GB of RAM, the i7, and...wait. You pick a $25 dollar case. Are yous serious? You pick high dollar parts then pick the cheapest case and a lower end PSU... Come on now, you can do better then that.
