My Current Build.. (is everything compatible?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is everything in this build compatible? I am going to liquid cool this build but first I want to make sure I have the right parts and if you guys think its a good build.
Fixed
Case
Motherboard
2x Graphics Card
CPU
updated*Ram
updated*Powersupply
updated*2x HD Raid 0
Current Price: $1,838.84

Did I choose a nice power supply and ram? I also need to figure out if I'm getting a ssd or a hd or both. Any advice or recommendations is very helpful. price is not that big of a factor atm since my build is only at 2k and i have a 3k price limit and all I need to buy is the cooling parts and the ssd and hd which shouldnt take me even near 3k right?

Yes these parts are all compatible! Nice Selection. Depending on what you are doing 16GB might be overkill. 8GB is enough IMO.

I would get a 120GB SSD like a OCZ Agility 3, Corsair Force 3 120GB or Intel 510 120GB. Should be good and use it for windows.. Maybe get two drives in a raid 0 for games and maybe a storage drive as well. If you use the drive for windows do not fill the SSD all the way up.. always try to leave half or a quarter free space to ensure maximum OS speeds on the SSD. Make sure TRIM is supported on as well. I would use the intel ICH10R controller as well to ensure maximum speed despite it being SATA2 because I know it works well with TRIM where as the Marvell or NEC controllers do not perform as well and may not support trim as well even with AHCI set in the bios. Maybe save some money and get a SATA2 SSD like a vertex 2, Crucial, Corsair F115 or even an intel X25-M or 320 Series SSD.
