What is a good reliable i7 mobo that doesnt break the bank?
Processor? 950 or 960?
Both are under $300
What ram for the X58 board above? Or if you suggest a different board, (different number of ram slots) ram for it?
What about this RAM? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148424
Graphics Solution. I have always been an Nvidia guy myself. Looking for a BIG performance boost. Maybe single GPU for now, SLI later. Newegg has some good deals on recertified GTX 400 series cards. Or should I just get a cheaper new card like a GTX 280?
Also I plan on going with this case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133179
And using this PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171049
Those are the main things. I plan on getting a Megahalems to cool the Overclocked i7.
I have HDDs, Fans, and all that stuff to add in from my old sig rig, so I dont need all of that.
I am trying to keep each component in the SUB-$300 range so that I can purchase everything in the course of a couple months. I do not have a lot of free cash laying around. Purchasing things like PSU, Case, and RAM together, then CPU one week, and Mobo and CPU Cooler together would be ideal.
What do you guys think?
