Need help for the rest of my computer?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I'm nearing the completion of finding all my parts for my computer. My sig rig IS NOT it {I just haven't updated my sig rig yet }. My budget is $1500-$1700. Here we go.

CPU:http://bit.ly/i22rw2

Mobo:http://tinyurl.com/62z6u4g

Case: http://tinyurl.com/3d7a82w

GPU: http://tinyurl.com/4ensunz in SLI

Monitor: http://tinyurl.com/27p4ujb

RAM: http://tinyurl.com/3grkkp8

Boot Drive: http://tinyurl.com/452baup

Data Drive: ???

Optical Drive: http://tinyurl.com/6589ckd

Sound Card: http://tinyurl.com/3c7szey

Power Supply: ???

Speakers: Maybe a 5.1 setup, but for now, ???

Mouse: http://tinyurl.com/24tyl8l

Keyboard: http://tinyurl.com/3sxfgyo

Headset: Turtle Beach X11

CPU Cooling: Can't decide between H100 or H80.

So, can anyone help me?
Thanks,
DJ

It might be better to go for a stronger single GPU setup, rather than SLI 560 Ti's. Maybe a single 570 or 580?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130587

Either way get a strong 750W or 850W PSU, look for a good brand such as Corsair, either the AX or HX series.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...orsair%20ax850

750W will easily handle SLI 560 Ti's with OC'ing room.
If you get a 580 it would be worth getting an 850W so you can SLI in the future.

For storage drives, look at either Western Digital Black drives, or Samsung F3's.
A 1TB Samsung F3 can be purchased for around $60.

I'm not an expert on the raven, but I think you'd have a hard time mounting the H100 in there. The H80 definitely fits, there is a 120mm mount at the top.

Hope this helps

Um I totally disagree with a stronger psu a 750w can handle 2 580s in sli so you will never need more then that unless you plan on 3 580s or more.

Bit I can't load the links on my phone atm so I will have to wait till I get home. Unless your sig rig is the one you want

In my honest opinion the h100 are a waste for the money. You will just fine if you get a noçtua dh14. Or a silver arrow, water cooling is not worth it for the money

My bad

This will cover you up to 2 580's, if that's what you plan to do.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139021

A single 580 is a tad cheaper than 560 Ti's in SLI and will give you room to upgrade in the future.

Good luck with your build!

@Kyronn I might get the 580, but I don't think I'll have the money later on to SLI it, so I'll stick with the GTX 560 Ti. And I was thinking around the 800-1000W range, but 1000W seems a little overkill for now. And I'm thinking more around 1TB - 1.5TB

UPDATE:

Found a new case, supports 2 x 120mm Rad, also cheaper than the Raven was, and better material.

DJ it seems that you are quite new to custom building so i will tell you what to get, ok It seems like you want the BEST YOU CAN GET, but it is not practical.

CPU:http://bit.ly/i22rw2 - Great

Mobo:http://tinyurl.com/62z6u4g - Um the saber is a gimmic

Now, You being new and all i HIGHLY!!! Discourage SLI, Please read now how much of a pain and frustration they are, also read about a thing called microstutter. And the 560Ti's are horrible, in SLI if you choose to which i dont think you should, then it should be the 6950's In CF

But if you do choose a 580 any of these will work

I'm going to agree with inchy that SLI will cause more problems than it solves.
Better to buy a single stronger card.

The 4 580's inchy linked to are all great, but bear in mind that both Asus cards are triple slot designs. All but the EVGA have great coolers, with plenty of room for overclocking.
Make sure you pair the 580 with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139021
Can't go wrong with the TX750.

For HDD/SSD's, go for an crucial M4 for your OS drive, with Samsung F3's for storage.

For CPU cooling, your best bet is the Noctua D-14 or the Thermalright Silver Arrow - whichever one is cheaper when you buy.

Hope this helps
