post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Yep I just built my first actual gaming / everything / last me the next 7 years computer (with new parts ).

A list of what i got thus far:

Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
i7 2600k
16gb g skill sniper 1600
2x evga gtx 560 Ti SUPERCLOCKED!!!OMG
Thermaltake TR2 RX 850W
Antec Kuhler 920
coolermaster haf x

using an old 160gb seagate HDD for the moment since my ssd and hdd order was screwed up

some may say that i went overboard on the mobo, but i got it so i could learn and it has LOTS of options, and looks cool too btw

just look at my sig rig, i HAD to go a little overboard lol

any advice on where to go next? since my hdd and ssd order got messed up i need some good advice.

I find it kind of odd that you went for 2x GTX560 (especially considering you paid extra for the pre-overclocked version, you could save yourself a fair bit by just doing it yourself) When you want this PC to last a while.

It'd make more sense to get like a 1x GTX580 now, then in the future get another GTX580 when the prices drop loads for them when you need it. As it stands if you need to upgrade the GPU, you need to get rid of both your cards. Just seems very short sighted.

Oh look in my sig for when you install windows on the ssd...best one i've seen and for back up you could try my guide too. And as for the 580 recommendation, you may want to consider it.
