Approximate Purchase Date: End of next month

Budget Range: $1500 total is the top end of my budget.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming. Being able to stream smoothly would be nice but the priority is gaming.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes


Parts to Upgrade: Whole new computer

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Doesn't really matter.

Location: Western Canada.

Parts Preferences: Not really. Reliable parts/companies.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Doubtful

Your Monitor Resolution: Going for 144hz +

Additional Comments: Hoping to be able to run 99-100% of games out / coming out within the next 5 years.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Computer is getting old (8 years) and having a hard time keeping up with new system requirements for games.

Just looked at some reviews for the cooler and the cooler that comes with the 3600 seems to be about the same if not, a few degrees better. Other than that I would say seems pretty solid. Maybe go for a fully modular power supply for some nicer cable management :)

Thanks :). Either saved me $30 or gave me $30 to put into better RAM :p. Thanks for the tip!
