Gallardo Refresh

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Reason:

After my Abit KN8 motherboard bit the dust for the second time, I decided to use the opportunity to update my system.

Motherboard: MSI 870A-G54
Memory: 8 GB G.Skill Sniper
Power Supply: Antec Basiq 550
Hard Drive: Seagate 500 GB 7200.11 (Trust me when I tell you this is going to disappear soon)
Secondary Hard Drive: Seagate 2 TB Low Power drive
Optical Drives: Lite-On IDE DVD Burners with LightScribe
Modem: US Robotics 56k Internal (I still fax from time to time)
Sound Card: Audigy ZS Platinum (Not installed at the moment)
GPU: XFX 7900 GT

Over time, I have contemplated overclocking this system but realize that the current setup is a severe liability in that I may not have enough power or airflow to keep my components cool. Therefore.......

a) Case will be replaced with a CoolerMaster HAF X
b) Power Supply will be a Corsair Pro 1200w (May scale back to 850-900)
c) The new Optical drives will be LG 12x Blu-Ray Burners w/ LightScribe
d) GPU is going to be an XFX Radeon 6870 series
e) Stock CPU cooler to be replaced with a Noctua NH-C12P
f) Sound card will be installed
g) Monitor will be upgraded. Current monitor will be given to wifey.

What am I going to do with the old stuff? I have a friend whose daughter is in need of a computer and I'll build something decent enough for them to use.
