NO agility ssd..ocz=bad..MMk? Crucial m4 or samsung 830 there..
other than than..pretty good! :thumb.gif
If you plan on adding another videocard later..you may want a bigger psu (1000w)
and..
you will need a cpu cooler

a 3930K is not typical for gaming buddy a i5 25ook or a core i7 27ook is enough
here have a look
When the 2500k is @ 3.3Ghz it performs better then 3930k 3.2k in average FPS
and after overclocking the 5Ghz the 3930k perform a bit better which i think is not worth 500$ investment redface.gif
Hope that Helped redface.gif

the 3930x is futureproof, so if op chooses, go ahead
and overclock.net's unnoficial slogan is "It's OCN, why not?"

post #56 of 94
... I'm fine with my 950 =p so 2600K or 3960K either will do him fine =p haha

I'd be interested in the new features ... I haven't looked into them much yet but doesn't the new intel 2011 chipset support sata 3?

Yes! Thailand =p that's the one thank you ... basically OP the flooding has raised prices of hard drives because Thailand is the biggest manufacturer of HDD

oh... okay well as long as your both sure =p I didn't realise it was more power efficient, I don't know why but I presumed it wouldn't be after the 6990 was like a small jet taking off xD

It's alright if he does exactly the same as whats done in Venom but Venom was modded quite alot? I dunno if the rad in the top will fit without tinkering

His current SSD is probably a SATA II SSD. Current chipset supports SATA III so why not??
