New Builder Here.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am a new builder but not a new enthusiast. I finally pulled the trigger and decided to build myself a system I could be proud of. I'm sure this forum will come in handy for all of my questions. I will be taking pictures all along the way. Parts to be installed are in sig. Tell me what you think.

The CM RS850 is a fine psu. It won't be over kill when he SLIs that 570 =)

Only thing left is grab yourself a SSD and another 570 in the future and you are set for a long time

That's the exact plan. Thanks! I would have gone z68 chipset and a ssd right now, but it just wasn't worth the price difference. But in a year from now, who knows.

You don't need z68 its not really needed.

In a year from now you won't need to care about p67 or z68 lol.

Yes SSD is very important. You probably will want a SSD before a year from now haha

Your probably right. I want to buy a good sized SSD, so I will save up a little more cash and supplement my system im sure. Gotta get it built first.

honestly all you need is a 60 gb which is ~$100. Just run games off your HDD.
