post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,I'm a newb here. Got a look into this forum and i like it. So, I'm Gonna upgrade my current rig(u can see the specs below)
The old rig will be used by my little brother so there would be no using old parts.

So far i got these:
-processor :intel i7 2600k
-GPU : Palit GeForce GTX580 3GB
-HDD :2x WD Velociraptor 600GB 10000rpm 32MB cache
-optical drive :2x LG BH12LS38
-monitor :ASUS 27" VK278Q
-case :thermaltake level 10GT
-speakers :Antec Soundscience rockus 3D 2.1
-headphones :sennheiser pc 333d
-mouse :Cyborg R.A.T 7
-mousepad :Cyborg G.L.I.D.E 7
-keyboard :Cyborg v7
Any critics?

And I need suggestions on these:
-Motherboards (already got an eye on ASUS p8z68-v pro, still unsure)
-RAM
-PSU
-soundcard
-CPU cooler
So, any suggestions?
thx bfore

EDIT - I thought that the parts were to be picked at too.. sorry

PSU
If you are SLIing then get an 850Watt PSU, the Corsair AX850 is great!

CPU COOLER
Do you plan on watercooling? - If you have the confidence to jump right in it would be a good time to start. Otherwise for CPU coolers (high to low) Corsair h100, noctua d14, CM hyper 212.

RAM

G.SKILL RIPJAW X. there are the lower voltage versions you may want to have a look at, which a voltage increase they should overclock and tighten up nicely.

Digital alliance is the local distributor for palit in my region so their products are basically palit products rebranded

i72600k, got it from my dad for free so no complains lol
WD velociraptor, got a discount price from a store(40%!!!)
thermaltake level10 GT, my dad's pervious case(he doesn't like it so he gave it to me :d)
i didn't really plan on watercooling, i prefer aircooling, but i'll think more about it,so far i'm still planning on air cooling

Its just you can get a kit and gpu block(would have to be a core only block since your card will be none reference I imagine) now and it saves you buying a CPU cooler
