New PC for the New Year -
| posts: 6
After almost five years it's time to replace my rig which has done me well.
Looking for some extra opinions on what a mate of mine has designed with me. Main use will be for gaming but I also do some video editing as a side project from time to time.
One problem I've got is living in Australia with hot summer days and this has caused some problems where I'm living. Personally I'm still worried about the graphics card especially. Any thoughts on keeping this new rig cool and quiet?
Anyway here are the specs at present:
