Wouldn't 16GB be overkill? smile.gif

Or are you suggesting 2x4+2x2 setup?

8GB is more than enough for gaming. Things like rendering and such are a little more demanding.

Edit: I'm guessing there is plenty of room in your budget to push the memory a little further. If you were at the point where you needed to cut something to boost memory then don't but it will make a difference.

Looks like you've hit most of the sweet spots out there for a new build. I would possibly look at the G.SKill ECO ram, definitely look at the CL 7/8 no sense putting slow cheap ram in a machine like that.

Well I could start out with 8GB Ram and add more later on if needed ofc smile.gif

But once I get the water cooling going my question than becomes do I have enough watts to support x amount of fans and the water cooling system.
Perhaps some over clocking as well?

what about getting the six core 970 i7?

This PSU over that one; Seasonic X series is probably the best line of PSUs out there at the moment, and you won't need 850W for anything. If you want, you can grab the X850, but I'd seriously suggest Seasonic over Corsair for this type of build with the best available parts, just because it'll be more efficient-- the AX series is just rebranded Seasonic X, but less efficient.

Apart from that, you're looking great. I can't wait to see where this goes. One hell of a first build. tongue.gif

Good luck!

Why go away from Sandy bridge would I ask you than emon?

Fooliobass > http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=357 These are the once
They should be CAS Latency 7-8-7-24-2N

@5outh.

Thanks for the kind words I do intend to take pictures and possibly film the whole unboxing/building this hell of a first build as you so kindly said smile.gif

Looking at the Seasonic X review here http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/09/25/seasonic_x_series_x750_power_supply_review/

But I am in the process of moving and getting a job during the summer untill my education starts in mid september. I do intend to have the system Early September/Late October

personal preference. smile.gif not sure how i feel about sandy bridge yet... benches higher but me and a friend have similar computers, same amount of ram and same gfx cards and i bench higher than he does. Hes running a i7 2500k which is listed to run everything at a higher frame rate, but neither of us see it... i guess it could be something he is doing wrong, but my real world experience with it so far hasnt been enough to make me jump off my i7 950...

and a suggestion for your watercooling, were you planning on doing the GFX cards as well? i will say that the blocks are amazingly expensive and almost not worth it. for Cpu, a simply h70 (or whatever the newest model is) works better than pretty much every air cooler.
