Building New PC - Help Review?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I'm looking to build a new PC here in the next week or two and replace my old system. Looking for a pretty beast gaming rig. I'm looking for a second set of eyes / someone to help look over my list and see if all looks good, any possible conflicts, etc. I GREATLY appreciate all that help to assist making this rig the best it can be:


Case - Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129100
-I really like the look of the case, and it looks like it should have VERY good air flow.


Motherboard - ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131760
-Did quite a bit of reading up and this seemed to have pretty good reviews and recommendations.


CPU - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz [LGA1155]
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115070
-Looks like the best bang for the buck - great reviews.


CPU Cooler - Was looking at some of the Corsair Hydro liquid CPU coolers. Look good at all?


Hard Drive - Crucial 256GB SATA III SSD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148443
-I've never owned a SSD hard drive. From what I read it works just like any other drive. Just pop it in and it works with no issues. Please correct me if I'm wrong in my understanding.


Video Card - ASUS ENGTX590/3DIS/3GD5 GeForce GTX 590
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121436
-Like I said, I am a pretty big gamer, and looking for a beast card to handle everything. This card is pretty sick, and also could SLI in the future.


Memory - Corsair Vengeance 16GB [4 x 4GB] DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233143
-Good reviews.. any other recommendations? Feel free to provide any recommendations. Also saw some pictures of memory fan cooling units? Worth looking into?


PSU - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold Series 1200W ATX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171055
-Need a powerful enough PSU to handle three hard drives, possible dual 590's in the future, etc.


Sound card - Feel free to provide any recommendations


Bluray drive - Will pull my Bluray burner from my current tower.

That's a good build, but I would recommend getting a different GPU. Perhaps a 6990 or a pair of GTX 570s which are on par with a GTX 590. You can even tri-sli them later on and they would certainly outperform quad-sli GTX 590s.

Thanks for the input. Opinions for single 590 vs 580 SLI vs 570 SLI?
post #4 of 9
580sli best perf (most expensive 4 pci slots)

570 sli (best price/perf - takes up 4 PCI slots, reasonable amt of perf compared to 580 sli, not very good for 3 monitor set-up due to small Vram)

590 (best perf for dual slot PCI-e card (alongside 6990 which it loses out to by a bit), arnd same perf as 570 Sli, probably more expensive and harder to find than 2 570s)

Recommended alternatives : If you are looking at 590, look at 6990. If you are looking for 2 card alternatives, HIGHLY consider 6970 CFX. (Close perf to 580 1.5Gb sli, with Eyefinity perf due to 2Gb Vram, cheaper as well.)

Seems like your on the right track.

I would personally choose a different case, perhaps the haf932 or maybe a mid tower like the cm690 advanced, corsair mid towers, or fractal arc midi.

The 2600k is overkill for gaming since games don't utilize hyper-threading so a 2500k will be fine.

16gb of ram is also overkill for gaming you'll be fine with 8gb.

The h100 is a good closed loop cooler. I'd get that or the Noctua d14.

For the gpu you really only need one gtx580 for now if your only going to be gaming, and you can always buy another down the road.

Of course if you wanna go all out get the 6990 and 16gb of ram though

Thanks all. The 16gb of RAM for 120 just seemed pretty darn cheap, couldnt find a reason to pass it up.

For a few bucks more you can get a Corsair AX1200 fully modular PSU, instead of the Cooler Master. Since all of your components are expensive 'high-end' I'd recommend this PSU over yours.

Looks good for a high-end build but I just have one question...

Why is it in the SFF forum? You could drop down to a mATX case and the z68 Gene while keeping everything else.
