(PRE-BUILD LOG)(Q)Mahnrags rig

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello fellow intel OCN members, my friend is building a computer (im building it) in the near future, and is going to be using it for some specific purposes. so id thought id ask you guys for a second opinion, then will post the build on here!

so first of here is the requirements:

-audio recording (has a mixer with usb out and all the fixings)
-gaming (hi end like BF3, Skyrim, etc..)
-everyday use

now here is the parts i picked:


CPU: Intel Core i7-2600k Quad-Core Socket LGA1155, 3.40Ghz, 8MB L3 Cache, 32nm

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Socket 1155 Intel Z68 Chipset Dual-Channel DDR3 2133/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz 2x PCI-Express GLAN 7.1-CH HD Audio 3x SATA 3.0Gb/s 2x SATA 6.0Gb/s 12xUSB2.0 4xUSB 3.0 ATX

RAM Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 CL9 DIMM w/ XMP (KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX)


HDD1:Western Digital VelociRaptor (WD1500HLFS) 150GB SATA 10000RPM 16MB Cache (OEM)

HDD2: doesnt matter, were going to pick it on boxing day

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD 1280MB GDDR5 (012-P3-1571-KR) nVidia GeForce GTX 570 Chipset (732Mhz) 1280MB (3800Mhz) DDR5 Dual Display DVI-I/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI Express 2.0 Graphics Card

PSU: Antec TP-750 Truepower New 750W Continuous Power Supply

Case: NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Crafted Series Black Window Mid Tower Case USB3.0

now hes also going to have 2 monitors hooked up. on 18.5 lcd, and a 20-22 inch LED. ones going to run the audio recording 24/7 (on the little one of course) and the other one is going to run the rest.

what do you guys think?

thanks in advanced!

p.s im re-doing my rig, and will be posting a log for that, as i haven't done one yet!

Here at OCN we buy locked processor for our mommy and daddies, maybe HTPC's, and for laughs. Grab yourself a 120gb ssd rather than a velociraptor since you'll definitely get more for your money with all the flood prices out there.

*****OOOOOO HOLY ****, i forgot the k,

i was going to add an SSD to the build, but the velociraptor is close in tests. and i can get it for 99.99 CAD. but you think the SSD is worth it?
