Nice build !

couple things I would change:

-SSD, get the Crucial M4, really awesome performance and more reliable. Highly recommended on OCN.

-Psu, I would go with a seasonic, antec or corsair PSU, that rosewill model could be fine but if you go with one of the ones I mentioned you won't have any regrets ! (this thread has a massive amount of info)

- you could change the cpu cooler too, check out the silver arrow or the Noctua nh-d14, they are among the best air coolers on the market.

If you are using this computer mainly for gaming, you probably will not need the 2600k; most games don't use the threads. Of course, it's your choice. If you will be using this computer for heavily threaded applications as well (ex. AutoCAD), then go with the 2600k.
I would recommend the 2500k if you're just gaming, though.

edit: I don't think you'll need 16GB of RAM, either. 8GB should be plenty. However, this is OCN...people here live for overkill, and if you want to have it, go for it biggrin.gif

I'd stay away from EVGA's 1155 boards. They're relatively new to the 1155 socket and I haven't really heard of anyone using them.

Asus P67 Pro and Z68-V Pro are great boards that offer good features and SLI at the ~$200 price point (about $170 for the P67 Pro).

I'd also recommend staying away from Rosewill's older gen PSU's - they have a slight reputation for failure and instability. Look into Seasonic, Corsair, and Antec. As for your SSD, get a Crucial M4, Intel SSD, or Corsair Performance series. Vertex 3 is notorious for failure.

Might just be me thinking this, but is the blue-ray drive necessary? I'm sure you could save some money and go for a cheaper one.

Not really any real reason to run 16GB of ram, especialy when it will kill the possible speed/timings you could run with 4GB, or even 8GB.


EVGA makes good boards, no doubt about that. But they really dont have anything over the other compaines with their 1155 boards, at least nothing to justify the extra cost.

Ive had the P8P67, and it was alright, but the MSI GD55 I had was much better. I would look at MSI or Gigabyte.


Also, Id go with either the Crucial M4, or the Corsair Force GT 120GB instead of the OCZ. Too many issues with OCZ SSDs. I have the FGT and love it, get rated speeds, no lock ups or any issues. I also have a couple Intel 320 series, and had a Samsung 470 series, all are good drives.

And as the others have said, skip that Rosewill PSU. The Season X-750 Gold is on sale right now for $130. Hard to beat that.

ok I switched out the PSU and replaced it with a 1050w by corsair. I figure since a psu calculator tells me that i only need a psu that can handle minimum of 850w, I'll just go ahead and get a 1050w psu. That, and you never know what I might add in the future. so I'll just get the 1050w psu by corsair.

the reason I'm going with a 1155 board is because I want EVGA, mainly because I have always heard tons of great things about EVGA. that and when I search for evga and 1155 boards, that is one of the only ones that come up. plus it looks like it has everything that I need on it. also I think I HAVE to get a 1155 board because that is all that a 2600k chip will go on.

I want to stay with an i7-2600k because occasionally I do some 3d modeling.

I switched out my OCZ SSD and added the Corsair Force GT SSD that you suggested.

The reason I was going with 16gb of ram is because, like most people on here, I love a little overkill. if it ends up slowing down my system like you said it might, then I can just pull out 2 sticks and run my system on just 8gb.

Over the past couple weeks I have been doing a ton of research trying to get the system that I think fits me the best. I think I'm getting close. I'll most likely start ordering parts later this week.

Right now I can still be easily swayed to switch out some of these parts. I, in no way, know more about this stuff than you guys. All help is very much appreciated!

Thanks!
