Is this the best setup or what?!?!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi y'all,

Here's what I am going to order (for my first build ever) this week:

i7 2600k
Antec 1200 case
Antec CP850 PSU (designed for the Antec case)
ASUS Sabertooth P67 1155
ASUS GTX 590
Corsair Performance 3 128gb SSD
(2) Western Digital 1TB SATA 3 64M in RAID 0
Corsair H60 cooler
Corsair 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance (CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9)
CyberPower GP 1200VA/720W Line Interactive UPS

Only using it on a LG W2486L for now (1920x1080), but intend to get 2 more for SLI.

I want to play all newest games on highest settings with slight overclocking for reliability (around 4.2-4.4).

Any information on compatibility would be appreciated. Any tips for cable mangagment would be good, too.

Total cost so far is $2970 AUD. I do live in Australia.

I'd get a different case and an Antec Kuhler 920 instead of the H60.

Hold off on the 590, since they are going to have a revivison of it during the summer, I believe.

Agree the new 590's are up for release soon so don't go buy a current fault prone model. or get a Ati 6990

Switch the hdd's for samsung spinpoint f3's

There are better cases for cable management, Like the NZXT phantom

Is that because it performs better or is easier to install?... or another reason?

I've been looking hard for any information about non-reference 590s. I can't seem to find any non-reference cards coming out (other than POV) which seems impossible to get here in OZ.

Does anybody know what is going on with non-reference 590s?

Not a non ref version just a complete revision as the GTX590 has problems.

Like op said there not non revision, just a complete overhaul of the current models.

In other words the card nvidia should have released in the first place.
