i appreciate the fast replies. besides for the secondary hdd and the processor, does everything else look solid? anyone hear anything bad about the other components i have on the list?
post #13 of 27
Everything else looks solid, I would go for the GTX 580 though if your looking for it to last a while, The 1K PSU i would keep if you plan on doing SLI Later,

If you plan on going multi monitor in the future I would get a 3GB 580 though

Both GPU's are good. The only suggestion I would make would be to consider a higher end air or closed water solution for your CPU, but other than that your good. The PSU is overkill on watts, but if you ever wanna SLI that would be one less obstacle to worry about.

Get the 580, or you could run Toxic 6950's in crossfire and stomp the crap out of a single 580. Toxic's also unlock to a 6950 easy as pie. and its cheap as all get out
I would suggest getting a WD caviar black for you program drive over the Blue. Its worth it. Samsung F3 1tb is a great Hard Drive.
For a PSU, TX-850 Version2. its plenty of power for your rig and will handle anything you would want for a gaming rig.
Lastly the 2600k is over rated for gaming, get the 2500k
Good luck with your first build

You dont need that stong of a PSU either, get a quality 750w unit from corsair or seasonic
+1. on the CPU and PSU suggestion. If you can afford get the GTX580 and also for OS on gaming syytems I just get Win7 Home Premium.

Drop the ram to some CL9 1600MHz. It is $50 cheaper and you will not notice a difference. CL9 1600MHz is plenty for gaming. If you want I can do the calculations...

If you are ONLY doing single monitor gaming, go with the GTX 570. Your FPS will be high enough and you would not notice the difference. I play BF3 on ultra and I have no noticeable lag or FPS drops. It is amazing how nice it runs. With that said, you can EASILY run your hardware on a Corsair TX-750, with plenty of room for OCing.

In reality, you should go with the i5-2500k for gaming. The i7-2600K will be better in some cases and probably in future cases, but it really will not be noticeable or worth the extra cash.

The CM 212+ CPU cooler is a great cooler for the money, I would suggest you keep that.

thank you for your feedback.. actually, could you do the calcs for me? not because i dont believe you but mainly because im curious and interested to see what kind of difference the different ram would make. but yeah, i will only be running on a single monitor and ill just buy the 2500k then.. especially if it will only be a marginal difference for what i wanna do.and plus, it will save me some money haha.

drop the fan controller. I have the same one and hate it. you can only hook one fan per channel. Get this instead you will be better off in the long run.
