My new build..any good?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I will be ordering this computer next week and I would like to know other people's opinions about it for some last minute changes if necessary:

Purpose: Gaming computer, I would like to run games such as BF3 at ULTRA, and WoW at ULTRA, I know WoW won't be a problem, but will it be able to handle BF3 at the highest possible?

NOTE: Should you want to suggest a new part, it must be available on http://pcandparts.com/price.htm as that is the only retailer in the third world country that I live in, I also know that almost everything is overpriced, but I have to deal with it.

Budget: Approximately $1500, the lower the better.

CPU: 3.4 GHz - i7-2600K 8M/LGA1155 $329 (i5-2500k not available)
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 LE (REV.3.0) ATX (DDR3) (LGA1155) $152
Ram: Kingston DDR3 1333 8GB $54
VGA: Asus ENGTX570/2DI/1280MD5 GeForce GTX 570 1.28GB DDR5 $372
HDD: 500GB WD5000AAKX 7200RPM S-ATAIII 16MB $88
DVDRW: LG GH24NS50-24X DVDRW - Dual Layer SATA Black $24
PSU: Thermaltake W0356RE Litepower 700W $84
Case: http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Produc...C=1325&ID=1968 $78
CPU Cooler(For overclocking): ThermalTake CLP0564 Frio for LGA1366, LGA1156/5& LGA775 CPU Cooler $54

Fans and PSU's can be found at http://pcandparts.com/must.htm should mine be no good.


As for the case I mentioned, I'm not sure if it would fit all the components, especially the VGA? If someone can check it out, I'd appreciate it.

I would love to hear your opinions, please let me know if it can support the upcoming games in the near future (GW2/SWTOR) as well as Battlefield 3, especially, at ultra settings.

Thank you

that looks like a pretty solid build, just make sure your case has good ventilation

i'd get a beefier PSU for sli. like 850w. also i'm not 100% on this but does the p8p67le support sli? either way i'd go for an evo or pro revision.

No, the current board does not support SLI.

Overall a good build but there are a few things i would improve on for your benefit.

1600mhz ram is the sweet spot for price/performance, i would go with this over 1333mhz ram. I would upgrade to a p8p67 pro board over the LE version, which may also help you with overclocking. or the asrock extreme 4 gen 3, which offers the best price/features at its price point.

700w is pushing it for dual graphics cards, i would either go for a single GTX 580 or upgrade to an 850w, Also beware of the "cheaper" 800w+ psu's as most would be lucky to reach 600w reliably, Go for a corsair, xfx, or seasonic unit for the best reliability.

A 1TB Samsung Spinpoint drive would be a very good choice and its very fast at the same price. Try to get a full tower case as this really does aid cooling and helps ALOT with cable management.!

Hope this helps!! good luck thumb.gif

If you get a board that supports SLI, you can get a decent 750w psu that can handle them. I have an AX750 and I ran my 2600k at 5ghz with SLI 570's without any issues.

It's only a single GTX 570, however, the dual is there to signify that it's SLI Support ready video card.

As for the RAM and motherboard, if you could suggest any part from http://pcandparts.com/price.htm ,I'd appreciate it since the RAM selection especially is quite narrow so I wouldn't know what to go for.

Also, will a single GTX 570 be able to run BF3 at ULTRA settings? (Since it seems that people understood that I would be getting 2, this also means that I don't need a 700w+ PSU.
