Last post before I order, first build

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm just making one last post before I place an order for all this tomorrow. I want to make sure that I'm not overlooking anything. Everything will fit together, no clearance issues etc.

Case:

HDD:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

GPU:

PSU:

Ram:

MB:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157265

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

CPU Cooler:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103099

I know these are some pretty expensive components but they are also high quality as far as I know. I went with the 750tx because I'm going to be getting another 560 for x-mas. It is the one thing I'm considering changing though. I could get by with less wattage ya think? If so what would you recommend for eventual dual 560's?

Also I initially was going to go with the TF2 560 but I've read that people have had some issues with them recently. I was recommended the ASUS but I've seen some sketchy feedback on it as well.

Also I will be adding a SSD from another site.

Any feedback is welcome.

The motherboard you selected is fine. Same quality as an ASUS at a lower price. I'm currently using that board and love it. Great overclocker, running my 2500K @ 4.8ghz. It also posts a lot faster than an ASUS board, and has a nice graphical BIOS.

You can overclock up to 4.5ghz with a 212, if you want to go higher check out the Noctua D-14.

You're getting the same case as me, I think you'll love it. It looks cooler in person.

I would recommend getting a different harddrive. The motherboard supports sata3 6gbs. Check out a sata3 drive with a 65mb cache, it shouldn't be too much more.

Everything else appears to be good. You'll love your SSD when you get it.

Really? I've read nothing but overwhelmingly good things about that MB.

What about the video card, which manufacturer would you guys go with for the 560 ti?

jrock: Thanks I'll look at different HDD drives. I eventually want to upgrade to the corsair water cooling for the CPU but I've never OC'd before so I thought what I have would be a good starting point and then maybe moving onto WC.

ASUS is fine.

ASUS, Gigabyte, EVGA, MIS; anyone of those.

Asrock is owned by Asus so you shouldn't have any issues. It looks like a really nice build!

Don't get the Samsung hard drive. Get the Hitachi 7k1000.D. Faster and uses less power than Samsung.


Visit The benchmark thread to look at speed.

He has pretty much summed it up. That SSD is an amazing difference from Hard drives. Good choice

I doubt it at least for right now.

Last time I got a PC I got it from cyberpower and I spent around the same amount I'm planning on spending now. I picked that MB and the other components with the hopes that this one will last me longer than three years.

I know I could be a lot cheaper and have the same performance I'll get with what I listed or even better performance but the idea is to kind of have it future ready to some extent.



I switched out the HDD for the 6 g/b sec you guys recommended.

Anyone have anything else or is everything looking good?
