Review an Intel build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
CPU : i5 2500k ( CM 212+ )
Mobo : P8P67 EVO
RAM : Corsair Dominator GT 4GB 1600Mhz C8
PSU : Seasonic X-850
GPU : EVGA GTX 580 3GB SLI
SSD : OCZ Vertex 2 120GB
HDD : Samsung F3 1TB

Build will be used for gaming, and some minor video rendering ( not enough to justify a 2600k or more RAM ), I plan to put it all under water eventually. I'm just making sure everything will be compatible ( might of overlooked something ).

Seems good. Two things I would change though.

The PSU I would use a corsair or XFX. But that's just me I've had issues in the past with Seasonic and it might have just been me or my power in my house.

The second thing is the SSD. Why get something that is already outdated? If you can afford it I would be getting series 3 of them. They are 550/500 compared to the 285/220 I think those ones are. It's a big gap between them. I would spend the extra money so I save it down the track. But that's just me.

The rest of the build looks good

So you're going with 2 580's

I would personally go with the AX 750. Fully modular and would be more than enoguh for SLi 580's. Also $60 cheaper.

I would also probably go with 2 60gb vertex 2's and RAID0 them.

I'd also go with the P8P67 and knock antoher $50 off with that.

Also, how much are you paying for that RAM? If it's the one I found it's about $80 for 4Gb. It's just too overpriced. Go with some GSkill ripjaws 1600 9-9-9-24. If you're only gaming with light video rendering then you'll not notice the difference and also save yourself $30 - $40 on that.

The Corsair AX series is really great, but the Seasonic Xs are great too, you can't go wrong with either one.

As far as Mobos go, he needs the P8P67 Pro atleast, because the non pro does not support SLI. The only reason to get the EVO instead of the PRO is if you need that extra lan port or need the extra PCIe slot (but note you don't want to try and TRI SLI on that slot)

Are two gtx580 3gb necessary? Thats $1160 in GPU alone.

Looks good though. If you can swing 2 gtx 580s mights as well get the 2600k too.

There's nothing at all wrong with the seasonic obviously, you can just save a bit of cash here, that's all.

This looks very similar to my sig rig that I literally just finished last night. It's a beast machine. And you want to go SLI 3GB 580's. That is just amazing. BUT you should go for the p8p67 WS Revolution and then you can Tri/Sli eventually too.

Just cause he is going all out on GPU power doesnt mean he needs to get the 2600. The only thing the 2600 has over the 2500 is it's better for video encoding and high demand CAD software. If someone isn't going to be doing the two previous things, the 2500 is cheaper and better.

On topic, this build is pretty awesome. The only thing that you could improve on would be getting the Vertex 3 if you can afford it.

Just a heads up as far as i know the 3GB card is 3GB for NVIDIA 3D surround and is no different than the 1.5GB version if you are gaming on a single display incase thats what you were planning on doing
