Build me a gaming rig!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Came up with these so far, can't really decide on which parts to get though. Ordered the Dell UltraSharp U2311H so I won't be needing a monitor.


CPU & MB: Intel Core i5-2500K & ASRock Z68 Extreme4
HSF: Corsair H70 or Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
RAM: Kingston ValueRAM DDR3-1333 4GB x2 or Team Elite DDR3-1333 4GB x2
GPU: MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II or MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk or Sapphire HD6950 2GB
SSD: Intel 320 Series 80GB or Crucial M4 64GB
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB
ODD: Samsung S223 22X DVD+/-RW
PSU: FSP Aurum 600W
CASE: Corsair Obsidian 650D or NZXT Lexa S
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

What I'll need: Recommendations for some decent and affordable 2.1/5.1 speakers and a couple of 120/140mm silent blue LED fans! Please advise! Thanks!

Are you in the US? I would reccomend better quality ram such as Corsair or Gskill 1600 cas9 ram, make sure they are rated at 1.5v or lower too.
I am not familiar with that PSU, it seems expensive for what it has to offer. I would look into a good Corsair TX/HX/AX or an Antec True Power , or a Seasonic X.

Cooler wise, unless you need low noise cooler the 212 is definitely better bang for the buck. If you are an extreme over clocker I would look into the Silver Arrow or Noctua D14.

Everything else looks nice, sorry I can't help with speakers and fans though. (I use headphones, and most good fans don't have LEDS)

Not from the US, what about the Team Xtreem DDR3-1600? Corsair/G.Skill's rather expensive, costs like 2-2.25x more than the choices I listed lol.

Help me out with the other parts as well? Can't really decide :/

FSP aurums are generally good PSUs.

He's probably looking at one of their 80plus gold models. the 400w aurum is a great PSU so i'm assuming that doesn't change at that wattage.

and not all fans with LEDs are bad...
