first true gaming pc build - Page 2

post #11 of 20
what is your reasoning for the Logitech speakers...? If you ever scan the audio forum you will most likely see them refereed to as logicrap. now I know what you're thinking, they can't be that bad otherwise they wouldn't sell them... I thought that too. twice. with the z506. I will warn you that they DEFINITELY have issues with the remote front right speaker. my first set the knob was all f-ed up (brand new from freddie's). second pair has distortion in the same speaker on DAY TWO. I am waiting for my BX5a's to arrive before I return them to newegg. If you are looking for precision sound, buy a headset. otherwise get nice stereo speakers, they will sound WAY better than the z506. you will be sorry with the quality and interfaces of the z506 (they can not produce true surround sound, only place audio from the front right to the back right speakers.)

As others have said change the PSU to say a SeaSonic X760 SS-760KM Modular 80 Plus GOLD, the CPU Cooler to the CM Hyper 212+ or if available the Evo, and the SSD to a Crucial M4 128gb.

This thing is so quite and it comes with tons of cabling. The only bad thing is that it isn't modular, but if you have a great case, you can still have a nice and clean looking cable management. You can get the 750W version for a little more money. Both of these PSUs have gotten good reviews.

IMO a power supply, a really good one, is something worth the extra cash. I have the Corsair 1200 and yes I know it is way overkill for what I currently have planned (even with everything OCd.) However, it comes with a seven year warranty, I plan on running dual Keplers, and who knows what else will hit in the next seven years? I figure a high end power supply is cheap in the long run.

i liked this pick:
Seasonic X-760, so i went with it,
final version with everything changed:
Crucial M4
Asus P8Z68-V Rev. B3
Razer Vespula
IKARI Laser Mouse
CM hyper 212+
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE Bulk
CPU i5 2500K
Corsair PC3-12800 8GB Vengeance CL9 (2x4GB) DDR3
Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced
Dayton B652 + Lepai TA2020
im going to order it, guess right now its everything set.
the two things i was wondering if i should change no one mentioned lol
it was the Ikari for the cyber snipa stinger (or other)
and the CM 932 i wasnt sure if i should get that case or other (was thinking about the RV03) mostly because both are somewhat outdated but i can't find anything to replace them in the same price range.. as for the HAF x i didn't saw anything worth the extra money.

i was thinking about that, buying a psu that would last.. currently im using a linkworld, i wanted for my new build a decent psu one that would last.
im not sure if by your post you are saying that i should get a 1200w lol
if that was it i think i would get really bad efficiency in my case..which wouldn't turn out to be cheap on electric bills.
i went for the seasonic because i heard lots of good reviews on it and its the same manufacturer as many corsairs.

I have one. I got it 15 months ago as a refurb from SVC.com . I'm very happy with it and yes, it does have a lot of frickin' cables.

Everything in your build looks good. Crucial M4 is definitely a good change. I've used the Vertex 3s and they suck. All my future builds consist of M4s if I want SATA3 performance. To give you a bit more insight on PSU, right now I'm using a Seasonic M12D 620W. It powers a 2500k OC'd to 4.4GHz (continuously) and 2x MSI GTX 560 Hawks OC'd to 1050mhz on the core. Never seems to run into any issues and the system is left on 24/7/365.

If you really intend on future proofing like some suggested then by all means go for a 1200w corsair PSU but honestly.. unless you plan on upgrading to 2x GTX 590s you won't need that much power. Seasonic makes great PSUs if you're looking for lower wattage.
