Intel Ivy Bridge Ready Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright, I am wondering what components would be needed to have an Ivy Bridge ready build. I am thinking of getting another desktop a little more powerful than the one I have. Plus, an SSD since it'd be a pain to install one in my current setup.

Any suggestions for all of this? Budget is around $1200 without tax. $1500 with tax.

I'm pretty sure you need to get any Z68 board with Gen3.

I currently ordered a ASRock Extreme 3 Z68 board for dead cheap and has some great features for the price. Cant wait to use it.

Any 1600-1800mhz ddr3 ram, gtx 580 or go down the ati road and get a 6950 and do magic with it.

SSD I have no clue, I only have an old Vertex from two years back.

Anyway gl with your build!

Why wouldnt you wanna just upgrade your current PC though? Some parts are still very good. The Megahalems, RAM, GTX460, Raven02, PSU, HDD. Just add on a M4, Z68 Extreme4 Gen3, and if you want to have a CPU, i3 2100 and wait for IB.

But, for a new build,

i3 2100
Asrock Z68Extreme4 Gen3
Ripjaws-X 8Gb 1600Mhz
Cooler: Noctua U12/D14 or H80
SSD: M4 64Gb
GPU: 6950/GTX 570
Case: Carbide 500r/ Fractal R3.
PSU: HX750

Should be within 1200 w/o tax on the egg.

Because it's a huge hassle to put in a SSD with my case. That and I may give mine away or sell it. One or the other. Never thought about an i3. Would be cheaper than the other sandybridge cpu I was looking at.

Though for case. I have my heart set on the Thermaltake Level 10GT

If you just want to upgrade you only need to get the CPU, a Z68 mobo (doesn't need to be gen3, that's for next gen GPUs), a Crucial M4, and the case you wanted.

The Level 10 GT is sth I will probably never look at honestly. For that price, you could get an XLATX case, and that case has many user reports of being extremely hard to work with cable wise, sure the tech is cool and the exterior is different (appealing is down to user preference). It is also huge, so take note. The cooling is also quite bad, compared to other cases.

I would very much get the TJ07/800d/HAF-X for a full tower, or even downsize and go for a 650d/700d/500r. The i3 will get you by just fine for gaming.

I'm looking at next Gen Gpus Want it to be able to support PCI 3.0 and Ivy Bridge.

^Well the looks I find rather styling. I already have a pretty huge case. So, I don't think the Level 10gt is much bigger length or height wise. Though my desk has about 3-4 inches of height space. So, not sure if the case would fit. Since I don't have the dimensions on hand.
