    Hello

    In early June I will be purchasing new computer hardware for a new PC I will be building using the Dan Cases A4 SFX (version 2) computer case. I have a maximum spending budget of $2280 USD, and will be purchasing the parts from Taipei during Computex, where they use US currency. The prices in Taipei should be the same as US prices (or even cheaper)

    I will also use the PC with a 4K 60hz G-Sync 27 inch monitor I will be ordering at a later date, for video editing applications (Vegas Pro 14 Edit) and for running modern videogames at 4K resolution. I will be building the system to last for a minimum 5 years before I upgrade anything.

    I have an older desktop I built in early 2014, using Intel i5 3570, Z77 motherboard, 8GB DDR3-1600mhz SDRAM and Radeon R9 270X, though I will be unable to use anything from it due to size limitations in the Dan Case.

    What do you think? Any last minute changes?

    I just thought maybe the new Cryorig C7 Cu (Copper) cooler would be a better idea, combined with slim 14mm fan to avoid air turbulence. It would also be a bit cheaper. What do you think?
