Several months ago, I posted here and asked for help in building a new PC. I received a lot of good advice and information, especially from jonuk76 but I decided to postpone getting a new PC. I think I'm ready to pick out a new system and I'd like a little more advice. Here are the updated parts I've selected:
Antec Three Hundred Two Gaming Series Mid-ATX
Asus Z97-C ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
Sapphire Radeon R9 290 TRI-X 4GB GDDR5 (11227-00-40G)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz (I'm considering getting 16GB RAM)
WD Black 1TB 3.5" SATA 7200RPM 64MB Hard Drives
Cooler Master i600-series 600W 80Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply (I think I might need a more powerful power supply)
DVD writer (I'll select this component at the end)
I'll use this PC for a wide variety of things, including video editing and gaming. My budget is around $1000 CAD for parts. The video card uses a lot of power so I'm thinking about getting an 800W PSU instead of the one listed above. I'm also unsure if this case is suitable for this build. I'd like a case that has good airflow and isn't too loud.
I'm also unsure about how many fans I should buy to keep the temperature down. I'm thinking about getting this CPU cooler - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
