First Computer Build. Need Help choosing mother board, and check if I'm missing... - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
I can get an i7-2600k for around $220 in my area new. I feel like that's worth it.

I went on asus website, and don't see anything about memory compatibility:
http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...specifications

EDIT: Nevermind, I found the memory compatibility list. I had NO idea that this existed. Thank you so much!

In the case of another graphics card (hard drives make no difference) you'd need a larger power supply. 700W should be fine if you don't intend to do any large OC's on the GPUs.

I recommend the DirectCU II models of whatever graphics card you get, as they are great cards. Keep in mind though, if you do, that they take up three slots.
I doubt 700w will be enough for dual 570's. At least 750w...850w even.

I decided on this PSU specifically. Is there any reason why I shouldn't get this? It seems nice, and it's on sale at amazon:

750w for 570's is sufficient. I run a pair of highly overclocked 580's on an 850w power supply and still have headroom left over.

With that said, it can't hurt to spend a few extra dollars to go to an 850w power supply as it will likely be carried over into several upgrades down the road.


2500k and 2600k overclock the same, where they vary is in what batch you get. Is HT worth it? I think so as it helps certain applications. If you can get a 2600k for $220 (about $80 less than it retails new anywhere in North America, then by all means get it).

For motherboard, go with the Asus P8P67 Pro. Best board for the price point. Z68 is a sideways move if anything. You are going to be using a discrete gpu (rendering onboard video pointless) and the SSD Caching is more of a gimmick than anything else.

This is it right?

Yeah, that's the board. I believe it can take two 570's but not two 570 Direct CU II's, just fyi.

Also, I saw 2 things of memory that sounded like what you described, but they have separate timing:

Ripjaws X is what you want -- designed for Sandy Bridge stuff IIRC.

EDIT: Oh, and forget what I said about the hard drives. I'm not really sure if another three of them will draw significant power, but I don't think so.

Yeah looks good. Corsair is generally a reputable brand.

It will take two CU-II's without issue.

Hard drives draw nominal power.
