Hi there,

I am planning on buying a new rig soon, if not upgrade some components.

First of I have doubts with choosing the mobo, either a
ASrockx58 extreme
or a
ASUS sabertooth

I do not plan on using SLI, and probably not even RAID.
I will only be overclocking my cpu which brings me to my next point.

I was planning on buying a hexacore i7 970 but I heard there are some compadibility issues with certain programs and 3d studio max not fully supporting it. Also it is about 200,- more expensive then a i7 930 which I currently have. I want to place a Corsair H70 on it for proper cooling for a fair price and stuff it all in a Cooler Master HAF 922.

I already ordered a GAINWARD gtx 560 ti Phantom 2gb and I also plan on ordering 24gigs of Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz for heavy duty work.

I already got my hdd's covered but I plan on buying a WD Sata 600 black edition 1tb HDD extra. or perhaps a Small ssd for my boot and change the registry to write all other data to another hdd. But I need to do more research on that.


So the entire list-
mobo: ASrock x58 extreme - ASUS sabertooth
CPU: i7 970 - i7 930
RAM: 24gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz
GPU: Gainward Gtx 560 ti Phantom 2gb
Cooler: Corsair H70
Psu: Cooler Master Silent pro 700 watt
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
HDD: 1tb WD Sata 600 Black edition


I plan on not spending too much on the pc. And if I can't find a buyer for my current rig I will probably stick to just upgrading Ram and Gpu. But for now I am open to suggestions on other products that might have a better price/quality ratio.

Thx in advance
