post #31 of 49
No offence but that build is quite terrible...

processor - 2600k
mboard - p67 pro/deluxe?
ram - 8 to 16gb 1600mhz
video card - gtx 560
power supply - 700w?

maybe throw in a couple of ssd's and a couple big storage drives...

use the extra cash for some monitor upgrades etc

On most platform you'll see four slots with two being one color and two being another color. With the X58 platform you will see three of one color and three of another. The platform was designed to run with three of those slots (all the same color) filled at the same time. Whether it be 3x1gb or the much more common 3x2gb. That way the memory will be running in triple channel as opposed to single channel which is slower (not sure if it will run full dual channel or not) but like i said that platform was designed to run with three sticks of ram.
The X58 platform runs fine in dual channel and there is NO performance gain in triple channel FYI,

Well, I'm currently deciding on whether to get the 2600k or the 980X, and looking at mobos for them. Both the ones I'm considering (Asus Maximus IV R3 Extreme & Asus Rampage III Extreme) should be fine; I've got a budget so big it wouldn't really make much difference to fill the 6 DIMM slots on the Rampage III.

this. perfect build. 560 is an amazing performer. 700 watts is all you need, and a 2600k is much more than anyone needs.

on another note, ditch the case. the HAF is disgusting. i personally would recommend going with a mini atx build (having a huge computer hogging space is annoying IMO), or grabbing a classy looking lian-li case.

I'm only choosing some of the internal components and building it; he picked the case, processor, power supply and HDDs.

Hmm. Mixed messages. I've been told to go Intel for reliability (which he'll probably need).

I've had zero problems with the 7 OCZ SSD's i've bought, so through my experience they get total props, love all my SSD's most of all my Solid 3 Series running on this build

I would disagree with getting the 560. Ever since the 6950 unlock, there is nothing that compares to it in that price range. My GTX 570 doesn't stand a chance(in most scenarios) against an unlocked and OC'ed 6950.

I totally agree with ditching the HAF-X case. If you want a small case(built like a skyscraper) that has excellent cooling, features, reviews, and IMO a professional look get the SilverStone FT03 and a ASUS p8p67 pro-m mobo. You can even fit a H70, and crossfire,sli in that case. Another great SilverStone case that IMO looks professional is the FT02.
