My First Beast

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I put in the orders for all my sig rig parts a few days ago. Thanks to Amazon / Newegg's 2 day shipping promotions, I will have everything tonight!

I'll be taking pictures of all the boxed pieces and of the building. This will be my first build so my brother will be there to help with the CPU Seating and the H80 mounting.

Expect a new member in the owners clubs!

Any suggestions / comments? Please feel free!

EDIT* Boxes came in. I have everything opened and I'm just figuring how to put the H80 and then I'll be seating the 2500k and attaching the H80 =)

Looks good man You will very much enjoy it What are you upgrading from if you don't mind me asking?

Edit: If your system was older like mine. You will kick yourself for not upgrading sooner

Edit again: Good idea on the SSD. I want to get one for my current rig (which I just built 2 weeks ago) but the price still gets to me.

I hope you plan to SLI that 580 with that enormous overkill PSU

You should cancel the Samsung 830 and get a Crucial M4. Ill try and dig up the benchmarks I saw earlier.

edit: Found the benchmark of the 830, has the M4 listed. IMO save $20 - $30 and get the M4

Nice quick replies boys!

Slappy - I have a 2008 15' Macbook Pro that im upgrading from... and yes, I am kicking myself! =D

Im about to leave work so no time to comment on the SSD front, but I have looked into the M4.

Yanks - My brother has a 580 classy in the mail that I will be using to SLI down the road once its needed.


Thanks for that review, I'll be looking at it from home once I can
