New Build Help wanted

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well the last time I built my own computer was back in 2001. It still works and I'm using it here. That said, I've decided to do it again and I'm looking for some help suggesting components. This will be mostly a game machine but I will also use it for everything else. Will probably Overclock a little but maybe not at all. Below are what I've got so far, and obviously I'm just starting the research. So, please help me narrow down the list.

CPU Intel I7 2600K
MB Intel DB67BG Extreme Edition
CPU cooler Thermalright silver arrow
Case Coolmaster 690 II Advanced
Pwr Supply - Corsair 850W
Ram 16 GB DDr3 1600hz
Video XFX Radeon HD 6950 Graphics adapter - 1 GB - GDDR5 SDRAM
Monitor I"ve no idea except I know I want something like 20 t0 24 inches with a fast response rate ( below 5ms)
OS
Keyboard
Mouse
Anything I'm forgetting...


Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks

Ram 16 GB DDr3 1600hz - 4x4 RipJaws ?

Everything looks good there man, maybe go for an Asus P8P67-V PRO instead?

Looks good. But I would invest in at least a 2GB GPU.

For monitors I would suggest out of the two listed on that page:

Ok. Decided to add intel 80GB x25 ssd to my build. And I'm thinking an 850psu may be overkill. Would a 750 be sufficient? What about an optical drive? Need DVD rw drive. Any suggestions? Still don't know about monitor. Those two azus didn't impress me because of possible ghosting. But I appreciate the suggestion and the help. Oh ram is corsair vengeance.

More build questions:
Ok here's my almost final list for my build. Does anyone know if I will have trouble with anything here. I.e. will this case have enough room for this cpu cooler? I read somewhere the ram could be in the way especially if there are fans on the sides? Anyone know for sure with this case?

Anyone know how many fans are included with this case? (Couldn't tell from any of the sites for sure) I know it can take 10 but it looked like they only send maybe 2 or 3. Any recommendations on fans?

Will I need any other parts that won't come with parts I have listed? Maybe MB standoffs?

Anyone please, before I do any ordering.
