Upgrading to a new pc [Help-Needed]!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Here are the Components i am hoping to use....

Case: NZXT Phantom White

Mother Board: Asus P8Z68-v Pro S/L

CPU: i7 2600k 3.4 GHz (I will be over clocking to 4.00GHz-4.50GHz so i chose the famous Noctua air cooler, not a big fan of water cooling)

CPU cooler: Noctua NH-D14

Ram: G-skill ripjaws x series blue (4x4gb-16GB)
GPU: Asus Nvidia GTX 560-ti

SSD Drive: Crucial 64GB

PSU: Corsair GS800 (800 Watts)

Are all these parts compatible with each other?, such as since Noctua HS is so massive will it be able to hold 4 G-skill x series RAM (4x 8GB)?
Is that SSD Exceptionaly good or are there better ones for its price range?

Also and any recommendations would be much appreciated on other components. thanks in advance

Yes the Noctua NH-D14 will clear Ripjaws X heatsinks. What you need to reconsider is the power supply you picked out. For one thing, you don't need 800W if you are just using a single GTX560Ti. Secondly, you should get a higher quality/tier PSU from Seasonic(Corsair), Enermax, FSP, SuperFlower(Kingwin). Good luck!

Yeah 650W-750W should be good enough. Leaves enough headroom to go SLI.

Get yourself an i5 2500k & spend the extra cash on a hd6970/gtx570,
change the psu to corsair hx750,
for the cooler go with thermalright silver arrow,its better,for the ssd get ocz vertex3 60gb.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for your reply's, and also i've been nosing around for a better GPU and these two terms keep coming up ''GTX and ENGTX'' i know what GTX is, but ENGTX i have never heard before. Does the EN stand for English version maybe or are they the same thing or is there a difference in performance?

asus names their nvidia gpu line up as ENGTX & they name their amd gpu line up as EAH.
Don't get confused,just get an "EVGA gtx570 classified"
Hope this helps!

Thanks for all suggestions guys, just wondering as i am hoping to SLI in the near future, with the TX750 PSU do the job? Since the GS800 is 50 more watts i'm guessing it can handle 2 GTX560-ti's not sur about the 750tx though, can someone help out?

Why do you need 16gb of ram
8gb is more than enough
If you plan to SLI go for a good 750watt quality power supply. It will give you a safe headroom for OC
