His/Hers Twin Gaming Setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

I've been working on a plan for a while to build a twin rig his/hers setup for my wife and I to game on. The concept is simple: Build 2 (nearly) identical systems each for about $1000 that can play most games at high or better settings and has some future-proofing built into them.

The games we play are/will be: DDO, SWTOR, Minecraft, Guild Wars 2.

Here's what I came up with. Please point out anything that could improve them. Thanks in advance. Looks are not that important - I will never want to admire the inside of the case, I'd rather be gaming.

Cases: IN WIN Dragon Slayer (his) *AND* IN WIN BR665 (hers). These microATX cases are identical except for cosmetics on front.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K

Mobo: ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 MicroATX

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB 1600 *OR* G.Skill Sniper 8GB 1600

Power: NZXT Hale90-750-M 750w 80 Plus Gold (yeah, it's white. I don't care)

GPU: HD 6870 (whichever is on sale at the time) *OR* 6850 if no 6870s are on sale.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Not sure on HDDs... They are pricey right now. Most likely Western Digital Caviar

Lite On bulk black CD/DVD writer

**I have monitors, mice, keyboards, etc already.**

The only other thing that would be needed is side fans for the cases (up to 4x 120mm each case)

Thoughts?

TX-10D so you only need one case, lmao.

On a serious note, that build sounds perfect.

Cool, thanks for taking a look!

I had thought about using an AZZA Fusion 4000 case. My rig (ATX) on the bottom and hers (mini ITX) on top. (She likes it on top)
