Here's a build log with that setup: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/s...d.php?t=677761 I honestly don't see why it wouldn't be compatible with your board.

I think that the most important thing about the computer is it's Power Supply, this should be at least Silver Certified..

The motherboard is also important, the only other thing that matters really is the hard drive you select, I'm not a fan of SSDs, sorry (the performance boost isn't worth the $$ to me), I use HDD in RAID 1, why? Because I can RAID 1 TB, they are only $60, and if one fails, plop in a new one, all done!

Everything else to me, is just about selecting a quality name brand, case is purely about design for airflow, cooling, & dust filtering...

I don't like generic stuff & I will never buy anything from OCZ again...

If I was going to buy an SSD I'd either buy an Intel or Crucial SSD...

The 750HX is gold certified, good choice. http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80P...x?id=25&type=2

I would go with the Corsair Force Series 3 over OCZ Agility but than again it would be a toss up between Corsair Forces Series 3 Sand controller vs Crucial m4 128gb.

Looking at the HAF X I would much rather get my hands on Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 though I don't have it in store yet and where near me.
HAF X is a good choice lots of storage lots of optical space and lots of upgrade possibilities.

I would go with NVIDIA over AMD since to me NVIDIA have always been the more stable once and currently the 580 GTX out performance AMD 6970

Well here's the build I've finally settled on.

Here are my reasons for the changes:
1 - 6970 is the better bargain in my opinion. That particular card offers great cooling and performance that isn't too shabby either.

2 - I decided to go with the 650D over the HAF because of the fact that I may be stuck with a case that's going to need to last me a while. The chassis of the 650D is very sturdy and in my opinion the cable management system is tops!

3 - I needed a new monitor

4 - i7 2600k was always going to be part of the build.

5 - Now I know I have a Noctua, but the aesthetics of it seemed impractical to me. I'd rather give up a little performance and get something that looked a little cleaner. I hate the fact that I couldn't get normal RAM sticks and I had to compensate for it.

6 - I think my motherboard is a little outdated. The GB UD3H-B3 is a great little board, but I think it's time that I upgrade (even thought it's still new in the box lol)

7 - I need some great ram, and I don't mind paying for it.

8 - SSD's aren't worth it to me for the time being. I'll stick with HDD. (Is loading your windows 10 seconds faster really worth all that money?)

But yeh, that sums it up. Yet to completely check compatability issues, but at the moment looks okay.

Let me know what you guys think...



PS - I now have a NEW Noctua NHD14 and GB UD3H-B3 Motherboard for sale.

I like the 650D, it's a solid case and clean design.
Are you absolutely certain on the p67 Sabertooth? wondering why you're choosing it over the p8p67 Pro

You might run into issues with that CPU cooler and those ram. I would suggest G.Skill Ripjaws X cause of their low profile yet superb performance

Spend less and get the ASUS p8p67 pro 60 bucks for something overpriced as the sabertooth Meh.
