Hey all I'm new here. Just signed up. I love computers and it's been a while since I've dove into actually working with them outside of productivity. My first computer was a dell back in 1998 which was top of the line home use then. My second computer was an Alienware Bot in 2005. That was such a little heat box. Decent performance for the time and price. It had a P4 2.93 no HT, 80gb HDD, 1GB of RAM and a 256mb ATI X550. Decent entry level gaming computer, and the first gamer I owned. Then I upgraded the case to a mid tower, got a better power supply and motherboard and changed the graphics for a better ATI in 2007. It did what I needed it to do. When I did the upgrade that's when I really liked building PC's and putting it all together and turning it on and messing around with it. But then school took over and I switched to a HP HDX16 laptop in 2009. Now I'm back after missing all the performance and thrill of gaming and modding and pc building. My next setup is in my system description. Haven't finalized the purchase, still waiting on a little more money but will be very soon. Can't wait to post pics on the build and all the remaining specs on it. From what I can tell it should be good. I'm looking forward to the comments and any advice given from y'all. Thanks!

Welcome to OCN!!

Nice Rig going forward, 1600W PSU is WAY overkill, get yourself a nice Corsair 750w. Also, buy those Hawks on Neweggs open box deals, they go for about 183 a piece.

It's only going to run at 1200W since I'm not going to run it on a 20 amp circuit but even still I know that's overkill but I will plan to run many many peripherals off my PSU so I'd rather just have it now and worry later, cut back $60 and I could get 1000W but I still haven't made a final decision. My total cost for my complete system, minus speakers since I already have the Z-5500, peaks at $3800. The hardware is only 2/3 of that cost. The rest is peripherals and accessories. I came to build a mean machine and I plan to keep it as far as ahead as I can without going extreme about it. And I'll look into finding the open box deal on those cards.

lol you would probably need to run 5 or 6 560's to utilize that psu.

Yea she's going to be overclocked. How much will be determined when I get it built and get baseline temps. And as far as the power supply goes I'm going to be running and audio amplifier off of it too just because it's a 12v converter already so why not. It's going to power a subwoofer at about 250W RMS. And thanks btw. Makes me laugh because usually when I hear nice rig it's someone talking about the Rescue (I'm and EMT).

I said it cuz I'm new to the forum and am a little bit of a Rookie on all this extreme stuff but no where incompetent on what goes on and what it takes, making the term Candidate more appropriate.

if your wanting to make a "mean machine" and are spending 3800 on a rig...then spend another 40 and get 8gb of ram instead of just a measly 4gb
