Any of the 3Dmark benchmarks, Crysis 3, Furmark(sorta).

 

TBH, 4 fans isn't really that many. My PC has 3 180s and 3 120s. It's more the noise level than number of fans, strap one delta 38mm to a case and it's going to be louder(and probably shift more air) than 4 normal consumer fans.

Well, I can still mount 2 more 120s, and another 140 if I wanted to. And would ou rate my rig "Budget" or "Mid-Range"?

Budget gamer. Money saves on other parts(hard drive, CPU cooler, etc) for a decent GPU to game with. Mid range would be an i5 and an SSD, probably with a third party cooler. Although since a lot of builds are balanced around specific purposes and needs, it is hard to classify any builds after mid range, additional peripherals also make it hard to judge. Do you count the guy with an i3 and  6 27" screens as budget?

Thanks for the response, but since I'm only 13, I can't get any cash except for certain events (B-Days, etc.) But I'm thinking of saving for an SSD for OS and some games.

By the time that build is dated, you'll be around 16 and eligible to get a small job anyway.

Actually, in Arizona, you can be 14 to get a part-time job, which is nice.

Lol, and no I have the i3 with a 24'' Samsung HDTV/Monitor.

If you're going to assemble a PC:

 

1 - Never settle for anything less than optimal

2 - Never order thinking you will be able to complete it over the summer.  By the time you have everything you need, there would likely have been sales, updates, etc.

3 - Do it smart.  If you can get a 5970 for the price of a 7770, by all means go for it.

4 - Do it right.  Can I even count how many times I've been brought a CPU that has at least 40 pins bent......

5 - If you plan on skipping any of these, you might as well skip #1.  Go ahead, settle for less!  While your at it, pick yourself up an NES and play some Zelda.  Going to be hard to find a Nintendo Power

It was discontinued last year...and I never got to read a single one. I love(d) Nintendo, until the Wii U came. *sigh*

By the way, great tips there.

Hah thanks.  I stopped liking Nintendo after SNES.  Just could not get into OOT like the 2D titles, etc.

Lol. The SNES is home to some of the greatest titles in gaming, one of which is Chrono Trigger. The sounds, the effects, the graphincs, and most of all, the plot. That's what I love about that game. It's a technological marvel in itself. Oh yeah, there's also Final Fantasy 1-6 (damn I love those games).

 

The N64 brought not much fun into the mix. I was pretty into the first Smash Brothers title, and SM64 (so much fun). Ocarina of Time was annoying as I still couldn't get a hold of the controls. Then there was Majora's Mask, which I never tried.

 

Oh yeah, there was also the GBA (I got to own the original and the SP), which was my favorite handheld console before the PSP. I got to play Dawn of Souls (FF 1&2), as well as Yoshi's Island, SMB3, FF4 (again), and (wait for it)...Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis. I had so many memories on this thing...and I still have it. Two of them, actually: one of them is blue, and is pretty much broken (though it could still play games); the other is pink and has a brighter display...and it belongs to my sister (but as no one plays it anymore...).

 

After the 64 was...the GCN. I never got to play a game on that damned thing. Oh well.

 

The Wii was probably my favorite...at first. SMB Wii was a helluva lot of fun, and I managed to finish SMG, and I played a bit of SMG2. I had the white one first, and I digged the black one, but my mom was so into the red one. We brought the white one back to the Phils, and bought the red one. Oh, how I hate the red one. My discs couldn't be accepted, and I couldn't make a Mii at all...now I wish we returned to the Phils to get the white one.

 

Nowadays I find myself playing PvZ or Pac-Man Championship Edition Deluxe 2 (long title, huh?) on the PS3, or Minecraft on my desktop, with my sis manning my laptop, and my dad's HTPC running the local home server. Everything else is just gathering dust...

Pssh. Depends how up to date with the latest stuff you are. Back when I was really following the latest components I could pick out and build a PC in under three days. If you aren't up to date, then yeah getting all the research done first is gonna slow you down a lot. My first custom desktop took me a lot time to get together.

Tried Planetside 2 again. Still hate it.
