My First Build: Complete...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Just completed my first build. Was a fun process. The rigorous selection process of each part, the nervous complete order button click, the agonizing wait as Newegg screws you, the fiance wondering why these funds weren't diverted to wedding planning. All in all, I had a BLAST.



Parts:
Case: Silverstone FT02B-W
Mobo: ASUS P8P67-Pro B3.0 Rev
CPU: Intel i5 2500K
GPU: Sapphire HD 6950 Toxic
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8MB 1600Mhz
SSD: Corsair M4 128GB
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
PSU: Corsair AX 850
OS: Win 7 Pro

Remaining Purchases:
Monitor: Dell u3011 or HP z30rw (Can't Decide!!!)
Headphones: Seinheisser HD800
Keyboard: Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless (Black Switches)
HDD: WD Black HDD 2TB (x2)
Desk: IKEA Galant Table (w/ cable management)

Completed Tasks:
USB Win 7 Installation via USB
Mobo BIOS updated to 1805
M4 firmware updated to .0009
6950 successfully unlocked to 6970

Remaining Tasks:
Cable management, it's a disaster in there.
???

So guys, what's next?

Nice setup but the PSU is a tad overkill.

nice parts and agree 850 is overkill.
650 would been fine.

Eh....If you can plug stuff into it and it works, it's fine. Don't listen to the PSU Overkill naysayers

Next step is obviously cable management, and then posting some pics of the finished product.

+1 for the 650. The 850 will handle toxic #2 no problem. All else looks great !!

Went w/ the 850 cause if I wasn't sure I was going to X-fire or not. After getting it in, and not being impressed w/ BF3 nor interested in Skyrim, I'm not sure I will. The games I'm looking forward to are Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars 2, and possibly Mass Effect 3 if I don't get it on PS3...

Now u guys have me nervous, will having an 850 cause issues? I thought that the closer it got to to half load, the louder the PSU fan gets. That was the other reason I went w/ the 850, to keep it under half load longer for quieter performance.
