hello there new here, read through were to post and was looking around and want to continue this on this forum as there are more people here and more insight thank you

ok so for the past couple of days i have been doing alot of research and alot of saving. i got my tax money back and im ready to spend it. this is going to be my 1st computer build ever and need alot of help im not going to deny. i plan to overclock and do alot of gaming and cad, solid works and such. well here is what i have so far. money not really an option. will these fit in case and work? better solutions? and im going to go with windows 7 ultimate all insight welcome even bashing only if you give a good reason as i am learning here.pertaining to the memory, i see that it gos to ddr3 2400, i understand this as a faster memory than ddr3 1333. not sure how it all works though as some say overclocked. as far as the mother boards the one i looked at had dual lan 10/100/1000 and wondering how that effects connection. also looking for a "gamer" card, increases online performance or something. and an amazing wireless card would help too. thanks everyone for all the help, im sure ill have a million more questions

The first thing I'm going to say is that if your trying to save money at all, you definately don't need high frequency ram (ie the 2400 you picked)

there is very little difference in real world noticeable performance between the 1600 and up. You could even get away with 1333 if all your going to do is game, but try and make sure you get some with some tighter (which is lower) cas latency timings. A good ratio for price/performance is to get 1600 cas latency 8 ram. The 2400 frequency ram is likely going to cost you an arm and a leg for not much increase in performance, except maybe for benchmarking and extreme, extreme overclocking.

Another thing is, about the wireless gaming network card, They are pretty much a gimmick. I mean they do technically work, just not much better than most onboard NICs, especially on the higher end boards.

If you have money to burn, you can look into them, but really the only ones that have come out in a while that I've seen are the "big foot network killers" and they are pretty pricey, the money could be better spent on something more useful like more graphics horsepower.

It's good for the NIC on the motherboards to have 10/100/1000, this means it can withstand 1gbs throughput, most modern boards are starting to have this, but honestly not a lot of connections even offer that much throughput in the first place, but as long as you have it, it should gauarantee no bottlenecks between your router and modem.

Also, another thing is that nxzt touch screen fan controller, I know it looks SOOOOO FRAKIN COOL! but they have pretty poor reviews and a lot of them fail pretty quick. They are pretty cheap though, but for a little more you could get a nicer quality one that will last more and control more fans.

Look into the lamprton FC touch. They are a little priceier, but in the long run worth the money.

Its a good build but i would change a couple of things.

The PSU is a big overkill. 850 Watts is plenty.
The case is the weakest part of it. Consider one of these;

Cosmos II - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119252
Silverstone TJ11 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163178&Tpk=silverstone%20TJ11

I would also swap the fan controller out for a Sunbeam Rheosmart 6. Less flash but a better controller.

Whoa, hefty build you got there =)

First, if this is your first build, I'd recommend you either study heaps upon heaps of videos on the subject, or have someone there to help you out, those are expensive components, you don't want them damaged biggrin.gif

Then, I'd go with an 1kW 80+ PSU, the 1200W is quite overkill. However, if you are planning to add more 7970s to that build, keep the big PSU.
Case then... the Cosmos II by dihartnell is what i'd go with, very nice case, lots of airflow, not wholly aluminuim, but has a good handy pile of features in it.

Apart from the H100 on the CPU, are you considering liquid cooling? If so, take a look at the X2 Project, from NOX.

Hope this contributed to your build,

Artur.

I'd look at a different case. Its personal preference, but this build deserves a better case. 850W is plenty on the PSU unless you are adding more video cards in the future. You could probably run 4 cards on a 1200W.
