2000$ HELP ME BUILD? Nvidia 680 GTX

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm building my first gaming / 3d animation computer for school. I need you guys help deciding on the best video card and new ivybridge cpu coming out....ie. i5, i7 so on so forth. Right now my current supplies are as follows(sorry for no links but I'm on my cell phone)

Case : Haf 932 full tower blue edition
Motherboard: Asus z77 Sabretooth
Ssd: Crucial M4 128GB
Heatsink : COOLERMASTER Hyper 212 EVO
Power Supply: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro 850W
Ram: GSKILLS Ripjaws Series. 32GB
I also have my dvd/CD drive

I need to know if this is a good set of parts so far and what I should pick as a CPU in the new IVYBRIDGE line.....I'm going to be buying a Nvidia 680 gtx as soon as I can find one.
I also wouldn't mind a pointer as to a good HDD that's reliable and fast. Please help thank you guys for any feedback

^^^^ No problem rep to you too +rep, 8gbs is workable but the freezes, lockups, and non responding messages you get when working on a high quality 3d model or Animation with multiple windows is just such a hassle which is why all of the computers at my school have 32 or 64 gb. btw OP what school are you attending?
