Thread Starter

spec so far is as follows
i7 2600k
Asus P8p67 Pro (like mine)
M4 64GB/128gb not decided (boot)
1tb+ ????? HDD storage
Zotac GTX 570 Synergy Edition 1280MB
Corsair H80 Push pull/Noctua somet or other/212+ ??
PSU??????
NZXT Phantom White Full Tower Case
Blue Ray Burner ?? suggestions!?!?!?
Gskill 4X4GB 1600MHZ ram/would you feel a difference between that and 2133mhz?


requirements for PSU is must be reliable and be able to power 2 GTX 570s and most probably 4 1TB storage drives in raid 0, along with a plethora of fans and other gadgets and gizmos.

and for cooling looking to stay as quiet as possible.

i have a pretty big budget to play with so try me!

sorry if its in the wrong section could a mod move it please!

Yes, while the general train of though around the forums is 2500k > 2600k for gaming, it's mainly to save $100 and use it towards a better graphics card.

The i7 2600k does support hyper-threading, and is superior the i5 2500k. If he has the funds, and will be doing other things with the computer than just gaming, stick with the i7.

As for the PSU, a 750TX should be fine.

And the Antec HCG/HCP-750 are great choices as well.

i7 2600k
Asus P8p67 Pro (like mine) - Get the ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 for $125 instead. Better board than our P8P67, and cheaper. wink.gif
M4 64GB/128gb not decided (boot) - If he can afford the 128GB model go for it.
1tb+ ????? HDD storage - 2x Samsung F3's in RAID0, and a 2TB Samsung F4 for backup (or two for RAID1). This would give him FAST storage for games and such, and 2TB for backing up important data (the RAID0 and RAID1 would be the safest route).
Zotac GTX 570 Synergy Edition 1280MB
Corsair H80 Push pull/Noctua somet or other/212+ ?? - H80 would do fine. So would the H100, or a Rasa RS240 or RX240. Your call there. The 212+ will handle lower overclocks fine...again your call.
PSU?????? - 750w would handle SLI 570's easily (and the rest of the build). No reason to spend a ton of money either. Corsair TX, HX, Antec TruePower New, Earthwatts, or HCG, Rosewill HIVE series.
NZXT Phantom White Full Tower Case
Blue Ray Burner ?? suggestions!?!?!? - One that works? I'm partial to Samsung optical drivers personally, my Samsung DVDRW's have always worked flawlessly with all media.
Gskill 4X4GB 1600MHZ ram/would you feel a difference between that and 2133mhz? - If he's got the cash, go for 2133. He won't FEEL a difference from 1600, but it could affect benchmark scores. 1866 would be the in between "sweet spot".

bare in mind im in the uk and will be using THIS website

UK prices are about double that of US. ie my 2600k is £240 so about $430 as opposed to new eggs $314 so not quite double but enough!

ive never played with an asrock board, ive always loved asus for there boards and i dont think id be happy for him to have a board i couldn't guide him through the bios over the phone.

but moneys not really the object its getting a setup that doesnt bottle neck.

In that case, here's a link to the PSU. http://www.ebuyer.com/279545-corsair-tx750m-750w-modular-psu-cp-9020003-uk

And if Asus is the way you want to go, go for it. We recommended the ASrock because it's a fantastic performer for a great price. Nothing against Asus at all.
