Since the first build went so well, my oldest son is now sniffing at an upgrade. He's got about a $1500 budget, tax in Canadian. Check newegg.ca. So anyways, I've been an AMD fanboy since my first build, but my understanding is they are so inefficient and lagging behind now, that I'm thinking of an intel build. I picked him up a white NZXT source 340 case and a Raijintek Triton 240 liquid cooler, seeing as how he's going with a white/blue theme. The trition has clear hoses and comes with blue dye so it should look slick!
Thing is, I don't know much about intel heirarchy so I'm looking to pick some brains. I'm thinking of either of the devils canyon chips depending on budget, and a MSI z97 gaming board. I have no idea what to put in for ram
Aside from that, a 512gb SSD and a 1tb HDD.
I've had good luck with 2 EVGA supernova power supplies, but I'm thinking he might like one with braided cables, preferably in blue or white. He wants a build he can really show off.
As far as GPU, I'm a huge ATI/AMD fanboy, but since it's not my build I'm open to hear about lame Nvidia cards as well....lol
Any suggestions we can throw into this thing to make it the most badass build for the bucks?
