New Build... any suggestions?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Working on a new build currently as soon as I sell my current rig (go ebay go lol) and here is what I have so far... looking for inputs and suggestions also anything that I might run into.

The main purpose for this build is the max out Battlefield 3 when it comes out at 2560 x 1600. My new Dell U3011 should be here tomorrow and its time to put it to use.

Case - Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case $279

CPU - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K $315

Motherboard - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $209

Power Supply - CORSAIR Professional Series AX1200 1200W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Certified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply $279

Memory - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 $85

OS/Primary Games HD - Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) SSDSC2MH120A2K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) $285

Storage Drive - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $85

GPU - EVGA 03G-P3-1584-AR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 3072MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card x2 SLI $1179

Cooling - CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler $69

Currently that is running at $2806.37 at Newegg.

The primary purpose will be gaming lots of World of Tanks right now but soon to be Battlefield 3 and SWTOR.

Am I overkilling it to much? I know I will need serious VRAM to take advantage of the resolutions on my monitor hense why I went with the 3B GTX 580's.

Feel free to tweak it, I'm all for saving money lol

If you want to save a few bucks I'd go with two of these, maybe grab a third if you decide you need it: MSI HD 6970.

580 SLI vs 6970 CFX at high res

Thats a thought... I've just been very leery of ATI cards since I had a very bad experience with one awhile back... I love my GTX 480 so figured I'd just bump up... but then again going to the ATI cards would save me $500... hmmm

That's a lot of cash. Enough to grab a couple waterblocks and a rad kit (like this one)
