This will be my first PC build. I have never built a computer before, but it seems to be pretty easy. I have been doing a lot of research on PC parts, I would really like to get all your opinions on the items I chose. I will use this PC for mostly gaming and watching movies. A big priority of mine is being able to multi task, specifically: being able to play a game and download music/ movies/ burn movies to dvd at the same time w/o compromising the quality/performance of the game I am playing.

Approximate Purchase Date: After AMD bulldozer

Budget Range: about $1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, movies, and browsing

Country of Origin: US

Overclocking: I have never done this before, but after I build my PC I plan to do an extensive amount of research on this, so yes

SLI or Crossfire: yes, in the near future

Monitor Resolution: This is something i would like to get help on. I would like to spend at most $300. Please give recommendations on monitors. preferably on a 23'-27' monitor.

Additional Comments: I would like to get some recommendations on a computer case. I want to spend at most $150 on this. I would like a Sleek case, one with a window to check out my hardware, nothing that looks too aggressive. I REALLY like the way the corsair obsidian 800d looks, the only problem is that its too big an cost too much.


My build (so far)

cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072 $225

MoBo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157240 $220

gpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127562 $290

cpu cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181013 $105

psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139010 $140

memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231428 $95

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136533 $90

burner: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106335 $26

Total: 1200
It looks beautiful, but right now you can get G.Skill Snipers (Same specs as the ram you chose) in a combo with the 2500k for about $300.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.644259. Plus the ram is compatible with your mobo.

LOL

There are two of them, dude you a mod ... comon now bro???

OP it makes no difference .... set voltage and go .... heat is not an issue at 1.65 ... I run mine at 1.72 with no ill effects

Or set it up XMP and the BIOS will do all the set up parameters for you

Heat isn't the issue. The issue is needlessly running higher voltages than required. Intel recommends 5% tolerance on the IMC; yes you can overvolt it but if there is RAM better suited for the chip, why not use that?

Memory:
Corsair Vengance 8gig dual channel kit.
Runs 1.5v your Sandy bridge needs & is excellent stuff.
Besides, being a gaming machine you want 8gb or more. 6 is ok (but you usually won't find that for dual channel anyway) and 4 just is bare minimum for todays systems, let alone future releases.

MSI's come a long way over the past few years. That MSI P8P67 board that was recommended above looks pretty b!tchin; CPU magazine just reviewed it and I won't lie, I drooled a bit. Priced nicely too.
