Help me finish this build =0

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Right now I have
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost)
Crucial M4 64gb ssd
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
Thermaltake Frio CLP0564 CPU Cooler

I am going to get another gtx570 and I want to get another ssd.

What I want to know is what kind of Mobo should I get, preferably one that will support ivybridge. I do plan on overclocking my cpu. Also what kind of psu should I get that has room for future upgrades. If anyone can recommend a decent case that'd be great.

Ivy Bridge is compatible with all the current LGA 1155 boards - but I'd recommend something similar to this.

As far as power goes, an 850 watt PSU (Corsair, Thermaltake) will cover pretty much everything you could put in there unless you plan on using Quad SLI and a dual-loop WC system

Don't forget a CPU cooler like a hyper 212 +. Get a mobo that does at least dual @ 8.

A P67 should suffice.

You said you want to get another SSD? For what...? Cause you need more space? Dont... get a Z68 board and a 1tb WD black and do SSD caching.
Get a good PSU. HX 850 or around there that is at least 80+. It will be sufficient for you 570's.
RAM, fine.
CPU cooler, not so much? Hyper 212+ is good and safe. You seem like fancy kinda guy so check out NH-D14

Yeah don't get a 2nd ssd for more space. You should only install operating system(s) and perhaps a few games on the ssd.

Pick up a Samsung f3 from newegg for like 60 bucks.
