Finally ordered a new build!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I just ordered all my parts. I took advantage of the Intel Holiday Deal and got the 2700k for cheap.

Right now I have order

CPU: i7 2700k (from intel)
Case: CM 690 II Advance
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3
GPU: Haven't ordered yet but I'm thinking a 6870
PSU: Corsair 650TX
RAM:G,Skill Ripjaws 8gb (2x4) (I plan on ordering another set come payday)
Then some MX-2

Gonna recycle my mouse/keyboard/Optical for awhile.

I'm so excited. The rig in my sig mysteriously caught fire at my sister's house earlier this year.

For GPU, I say get a 2nd hand card and wait till new gen cards arrive. They are worth the upgrade from what I have been hearing and seeing.

A good and cheap 2nd hand card is a 5850.

Yeah. I'd suffer with that 9500GT until the new ones come out. If anything, the 6xxx series will be cheaper as well.

Unfortunately yes,

I assume you're just using this for gaming, if so you should have gone with the i5 2500k and dropped a bit more on the GPU

The motherboard isn't amazing, for that money you probably should have had a look at the MSI board (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130621) which was $125 but is now $99.

16Gb of memory is a waste of time, 8gb is more than enough for gaming and light rendering.

You dropped $90 on a case that you could have spent $50 on and got something just as good (Rosewill Challenger) and then spent more on the GPU.

Also, for this setup, I'd seriously consider getting a GTX560Ti 448 core, if you can't afford after the changes i've made then go wth the standard 560ti.

Thanks for the recommendation. I was debating on waiting to see what's coming out soon but I feel like if I'm always waiting then I will never actually buy a GPU. Gaming isn't really big for me. I want to get more into PC gaming but right now all I really play is StarCraft II.

Thanks for your input. it's not really for heavy gaming but I do plan on trying a few more games. I must admit I went with the case cause it looks good to me and not really for functionality. Not sure if you read the original post but I got the 2700k for a total of $111, that's cheaper than the i5.

I do plan on editing HD video, should I still not go 16gb of RAM?

I was definitely looking at the 560 ti ask I have read that it does pretty good on most games. I'll keep researching my GPU options.

Once again thanks for your input. I really appreciate it!
