New Pc i'm building... wut u think?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Trying to make it as future proof as i can... by updating pieces over time like more ram harddrive and dual gpu

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 2133
Now unavailable
was this close to buying!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231468

This is for decent gaming. I dont mind to play games in low settings...
My monitor will be the Samsung 2233RZ... with 120hz framerate. dunno if it will really make a difference.

here's my setup/wishlist:

Thoughts?
I want something that is future proof. So i got p67 mobo since in 2012 the new 22nm intel processors will be compatible with it.
mmhh maybe i should get cheaper cpu since i plan on replacing it within 3 years or so.
I also got a mobo that can support sli so down the road i'll be able to add another gpu.
And I got cheap hd since I dont need much space now i can wait until prices drop.

Was really hoping to get that ram tho just expired!
Almost makes me want to postpone tho whole thing to 2012 when ddr4 will come out.
New rig isn't urgent.

Wut are your thoughts? I got 700watt psu for when i go sli.
Will it all fit in the case?

using mini keyboard since i want more space for mouse and i like laptop keys more over bulky traditional keyboard keys

I'm either thinking of going 2100 or 2500... comes down to budget rlly and that i want to eventually upgrade so current cpu wont matter.

I'm still going to buy this rig. Since i saw this pair of memory and promo code with it.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231449

The video card has real nice deal on it. But i need to buy more expensive mobo to go with it since other mobos dont indicate sli compatibility.

thinking of going crossfire but i dunno... On second thought crossfire can take two different cards right. a high performance and low perf. I could get low perf first then eventually get higher performance one.
Whereas sli i need to get two identical or same series cards

I dont have to worry about squeezing everything in the case correct?
