Ordering Tomorrow! ISO Last Many Critique!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I'm finally ordering my computer tomorrow. My budget was $1500, and this comes to around $1450. Let's get down to it, here's the build:

CPU - Intel Core i5 2500K hopefully OC'd to 4.5+

HS - Noctua NH-D14

MOBO - Either Gigabyte P67A-UD4 or Asus P8P67 Pro, haven't decided yet but I'm sure I'd be happy with either.

GPU - 2x Reference 6950's unlocked and OC'd in CF, most likely Sapphire but they're starting to disappear so who knows which brand.

PSU - Corsair AX850

RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 1600 CL9

HDD - Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

CASE - Cooler Master HAF X

Optical Drive - random one from old computer

Critique please gogogogo

Looks to me like a pretty solid modern build.

You should consider an SSD later on down the road.

Are your GPUs reference or non-reference?

Reference but they're starting to look scarce

with the GPU's 'unlocked' means you flashed them to 6970's right?

Don't worry about the SSD's at the moment, get them some time later after you get the essentials (yes, SSD's ARE A LUXURY).

Looks pretty good, I especially love the Noctua nh-D14 >: )
It'll be heavy on the motheboard socket but it should do fine.

Looks good to me! The NH-14D is a beast.

Stay with the reference cards, unless you want good cooling out of the box.
