Thoughts on this build?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
NZXT Phantom (white)
Corsair H70 CPU Cooler
i5 2500K
Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3
4GB G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600
MSI GTX 580 Lightning
Corsair HX 750w
Intel X25-V 40GB SSD (reusing)
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD
Sony Optiarc 24x DVD Burner

So this is the build I'm going with for my new build (current one is going to my brother).

What are you thoughts on it?

I kinda feel bad about not going with the i7 2600K just for the hell of it!

Even in CPU heavy games such as Shogun or MMOs?

I'll be using the Corsair H70. Not sure if I want to push/pull depending on how far the radiator is going to stick out.

My reasoning comes from THIS I'd say save the money in a good cooler, H70, DH-14, even a 240 loop like the RASA kit

Awesome.

Do you guys think I can max Arma II with the build?

I tried playing the demo on my current build and it wasn't performing too well so I didn't buy the full game =(

Add another F3 HDD if you have extra money and RAID0 it.
The speed comes out insane for a HDD.

And is your current build on your sig?
If you are, then why not add a second GTX470 and SLI it?
