$2000 first build (Deadline > Black Friday) - Page 5

post #41 of 75
Don't get the Sanyo Denki's if you aren't okay with having to spend some more cash on a soldering iron. Plus, I feel like you're the person who likes to do it all "custom" or something like that so you'll probably spend even more on some 18 and 24awg wiring and then some sleeving after that. It'll probably be a nice feeling but it's costly and it will definitely push you over your budget. It's just a guess but it seems like you're going to do that. You probably read N-Sanity's guide to fans. It's a great guide but it doesn't mean you have to go insane to get a fan that can push 100CFM or more without getting any louder than 30dBA.

I always felt uncomfortable about the soldering but it's the pursuit of performance. biggrin.gif

it looks good to me, I like corsair ram or kingston ram myself. any 2x4 or 4x4 1600 kit from them is good, Corsair does one with 8-8-8-24 timings which is cheap.

What I did using $1000 and Newegg black Friday deals.

The GPU is just a filler so you could use whatever 300~ GPU you want.

Didn't include HDD's OS Montior and other peripherals.

Referred this because you were going for Asus V-Pro and i5 2500k.

Thanks. Will use it.

I'll give you a look at my planed build to keep your creative juices flowing. I have spent many weeks working out this rig (1-2 minutes a day to change something to an improvement). And this is what I plan on buying so far. This build wasn't centered around just performance, but also reliability and longtivity. Fast parts are nice but they if they go "kaput" within the first 6 months then its not of any interest to me. Note I only provide this as a reference. I'm not sure if the Ripjaws X will fit under the NH-D14 or not etc. I haven't looked at any manuals yet to work out the numbers. I also only planed on the single card GPU so I compensated on the price with a 650 watt which is plenty (just so you know its not intended for future crossfire otherwise a 900w+ would be needed).

2 different SSD's?

Edit: Trying to choose between a 60GB vertex 3, 60GB chronos (standard, not deluxe), and a M4. The M4 is a great drive but the write speeds seem terrible. The Chronos seems to be the top of the line (overall). Did the companies throw out new firmware after I think OCZ or Sandforce admitted it was a firmware problem?

One of them is a 2.5-3.5 adapter.

Fist off you sound like your tring to save money and the system isnt all about "performance" and so on, then why the 6970?? 6950 that unlocks will be the same at a better cost..

Also blue everything with red ram would really bother me.

That's bothering me at the moment and the fact that I don't want to take them apart and paint them.

Edit: narrowed RAM down to the following.
