Thread Starter 
Hey people,
Im Building my first computer in one month and i could use some advice,
The build is....
Motherboard: MSI Big Bang Marshal
Graphics Card: MSI 580GTX Lightning
RAM: G. Skill Sniper Series 8GB(2x4GB) 1866mhz DDR3
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60
Power Supply: Corsair Professional Series AX1200 1200w PSU
Case: In Win Dragon Rider Full Tower Case
Optical Drive: Lite On 12x Blu-Ray Reader/Writer
HDD: WD VelociRaptor 600gb 10k RPM
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 240gb
so the question is will it all work?

Yes it will work. However a better question is what is the main purpose of this build? As a lot of the stuff in this build is a bit overkill..

If your not going to utilize all the pcie lanes of that board then its useless to you. Go for the asus maximus p67

The purpose of this build will be for gaming at high antialaising levels,
And for being able to play games at maximum detail for a few years,
The 1200w PSU is for dual SLI once i get the second 580GTX,
And ill probably want to play Blu-Ray movies on the computer,
So the Blu-Ray player would come in handy,
Also i'm planning on getting the Corsair H60 because its a well priced
CPU Cooler,Though I will be going full water cooling in the future,And also I like the MSI Big Bang Marshal Because it has alot of USB 3.0 Ports and I use USB alot, Also I like the mainboard because it has alot of room to add extra PCI Card in the future also the video cards will have quite a bit of room to breath and wont overheat, and the SSD is for me to install Windows 7 on and some games, Thanks for the help so far!

Makes sense, all in all a very high end rig you have picked that will last for many years, Enjoy

If the main purpose of the rig is gaming then you don't need a i7, go with i5, overclocks just as well and costs less. You'll never use the hyper threading of the i7 (unless you plan on doing video editing).

Also instead of the VelociRaptor, why not look in to a RAID 0 configuration, not only will it be way faster than the VelociRaptor but also have more than triple the storage capacity (if you go 2x1TB) and cost a fraction of the price.

Actully i might try video editing, As ive made a few videos in the past,
And video editing is pretty fun i think, Also ive considered Raid 0 Configurations for the hard drives, But then i considered that id have only 1 SATA 6.0gb/s Port left, and i would like to get another SSD down the road to Raid it with the one im going to have, Then after that i would be forced to use only the SATA 3.0gb/s ports, Also i forgot to mention the monitor this will be hooked up to is a Samsung P2770FH 27" 1080p 120hz, Also im considering going with either the Corsair SP2500 or the Logitech Z5500, What are your guy's opinions on the Monitor and Speakers? Oh also i forgot to mention the budget is $4,000 i can stretch the budget a bit but nothing too big.

You do not need to use sata III ports for a couple of samsung F3's 1TB version...

You have 4 x Sata II (3Gb/s) and 4 x Sata III (6Gb/s).

Optical drive = 1xSata II
2x 1TB HDD (samsung F3 or WD black) = 2x Sata II

So in total you'v populated 3 Sata II ports, you still have one to spare.

Your SSD = 1 x Sata III
If you get another one down the road = another 1 x Sata III

So your going to have another 2 Sata III ports free. Why would a RAID config pose any problem?

Nice choice in parts man... Go all out if you got the budget and you won't be dissatisfied... The GTX 580 and SSD with that processor all matches perfectly... the AX-1200 is a beast and like you say is overkill for your setup, but has more than enough potential even if you overclock dual GTX 580's.... And when you do not use all that power, it's 90% efficient even at 600 watts... so u'd still be saving money regardless...

so the question is will it all work?
the answer is that these parts are made for each other... Vertex 3 on the sandy bridge achieves numbers that my older x58 board can never reach...

Enjoy your build!
