Help with new build!  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I'm building my first computer and I need some opinions on my hardware choices. Here are the parts that I'm considering to buy:

Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(2x4gb)-corsair-ddr3-vengeance-jet-black-pc3-12800-(1600)-non-ecc-cas-9-9-9-24-xmp-150v

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition

CM Storm Enforcer Gaming Midi Tower
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cases/MIDI+Tower/Coolermaster+Storm+Enforcer+Gaming+Midi+Chassis+?productId=44604

Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3, Socket-AM3+
http://www.gigabyte.se/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3901#ov

MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB PhysX
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-msi-gtx-560ti-oc-twin-frozr-ii-40nm-4200mhz-gddr5-gpu-880mhz-shader-1760mhz-384-cores

OCZ SSD Agility 3 Series 2.5" 60GB
http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-agility-3-sata-iii-2-5-ssd.html

Western Digital Caviar® Blue 500GB
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Western-Digital-Caviar-SATAIII-Internal/dp/B00461G3MS/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1328478126&sr=1-1

Seasonic 850W 80 Plus Gold ATX12V/EPS12V Power Supply - X-850 SS-850KM
http://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-ATX12V-EPS12V-Power-Supply/dp/B004ETEFTK/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1328454412&sr=1-2

Where I'm thinking of buying them (in Swedish):

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=618010

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=617631

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=632128

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=638762

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=622728

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=657307

http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=620189

http://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-ATX12V-EPS12V-Power-Supply/dp/B004ETEFTK/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1328454412&sr=1-2 (English)

Keep in mind that those prices are in SEK. 1$ is about 7SEK and 1£ is about 10SEK.

So if anyone has any tips on better parts, cheaper options or just handy tips, please write a comment on this thread.
Thank you

I say go with a Asus Mobo, and go with a 990FX so you have further upgrades, pcie x16 3.0 is also a good choice.

Change the SSD and get the Crucial 64GB M4.Much better and everyone here on OCN will agree biggrin.gif

I definitely would stick with the Gigabyte mobo over the RAM sensitive/unreliable Asus mobos, based on my experience and reports from many other Asus customers.

As far as the SSD is concerned - every major brand has had reliability or compatibility issues of one sort or another including Crucial who has a 5200 hour Bug in their firmware that requires an update.

There isn't a single SSD that I would personally use or recommend at this time if data security is important. Some folks experience no issues while others have BSOD, lost data, drive size loss and constant RMAs. If you're in Switzerland then I'd look for an easy, inexpensive warranty process on any SSD you are considering.

i don't 100% side with that but- i see where you are going the ASUS boards are reliable just VERY ram sensitive.
