Finalizing build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
NOTE: Should you want to suggest a new part, please refer to the website listed below; I live in a 3rd world country, which means that I have a poor selection available as well as overpriced components.

http://pcandparts.com/price.htm

Purpose: Gaming
Planning on ordering as soon as possible.
Would like to run games such as Battlefield 3 and SWTOR at ULTRA, will this build make it possible?

Budget: $1600; all of the parts below sum up to 1368$

CPU: 3.4 GHz - i7-2600K 8M/LGA1155 (2500k not available, only 2500)

Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V PRO ATX (DDR3)

VGA: Asus ENGTX570/2DI/1280MD5 GeForce GTX 570 1.28GB DDR5 (Supports SLI)

RAM: 2X Kingston 4GB DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 ( 8GB )

Case: http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1325&ID=1968 (Need your input on this one, enough space for SLI in the future? Enough cooling?)

HDD: 750GB WD7500AARS ~7200RPM S-ATAIII 64MB

PSU: Thermaltake W0356RE Litepower 700W (Enough?; suggest one from here http://pcandparts.com/must.htm if not)

CPU Cooler(For overclocking): ThermalTake CLP0564 Frio for LGA1366, LGA1156/5& LGA775 CPU Cooler


I also need a UPS due to the power outages in this country(Lebanon), I wouldn't want my computer getting fried on the first day; not sure how much VA I need or what a good brand is, if anyone could suggest one from here http://pcandparts.com/drives.htm , I'd appreciate it.

Thank you for your time.

In short, yes, with that setup you will be able to run BF3 on ultra with ease. The 700W PSU is also more than enough and will even give you enough room to SLI your 570s in the future smile.gif

It is too bad the 2500k is not available in your country though frown.gif

As for UPS, depending on how long your outages last, you'd want to find one that has enough capacity to meet the full load of your entire system. A good way to measure is if you have a 700W PSU in your system, find a UPS that has a max capacity of up to 700W or even greater for more headroom and battery life.

Well, that pretty much answers almost all of my questions except for the one about the case? Is it big enough for SLI later on? What about cooling?

Also, outages don't really last long, most of the time it's about 1-2 seconds but those seconds will make my pc shut down

It is a decent case for it's price, it will definitely have enough room for you to SLI in the future. Can't comment on the cooling but it can't be bad seeing as how there are quite a few fan mounts available pretty much on all possible sides of the case.

Not bad, definitely a bit cheaper but the A60 will have better cooling.

I'll stick with the A60, I suppose, thanks for your help. {+Rep}

If anyone else passing by this thread would like to comment, feel free to, the more input the better.
