Another build question :)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey,
So I'm building a computer by the end of late November and was just checking if anyone has any problems/improvements with my build.
Case:BitFenix Shinobi
PSU:Corsair TX-650v2
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 EXTREME4
CPU:Intel CORE i5 2500K
RAM:G.Skill Sniper 8GB 1600MHz (Only 1.25 volts )
HDD:Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

No ODD as of current because I don't think I'll need one if I can grab an 8GB flash drive for the OS.

Budget = $755

I'll be using it for BF3 and will be using on-board graphics until Christmas which I will purchase a 6950 and match volts and clocks to a 6970 and unlock shaders if possible.

Looks good, change the WD green to a Black or Samsung Spinpoint, as the greens are no good for OS drives.

If you want a modular psu, this XFX 650 is also made by seasonic.

No good for OS?

They are more of a secondary drive than a primary HDD, they are slower than most drives as they are eco drives, made to consume less power and create less heat.
