New gaming rig

post #1 of 14

Hello everyone biggrin.gif

So I´m going to build a new gaming computer sometime In May, and I was wondering if you guys could tell me if the hardware I have chosen are good thumb.gif

Btw the links are in Danish, because I´m from the Faroe Islands and will be ordering parts from Denmark, which will be the cheapest way for me smile.gif

Looks like a nice build but i would swap the mobo with Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 and maybe the CPU with 3570k.

Some people say Corsair ram doesnt OC so nice so they usually suggest Samsung line or something similar. Also 16gb is a bit too much just get a 8gb kit.

Overall your build is nice but i would also add a Samsung 830 128gb SSD in there smile.gif

Change the Proccy with Core i5 3570k , mobo with Gigabyte G1 Sniper M3 & GPU with EVGA GTX 680

I would use a AMD 8120, It cost at least 60 bucks less, and can match the i5/i7 in performance. Plus, you could for the same price get a gaming board....Asus Crossfire V Formula is a good board.

That's terrible advice. An 8120 is garbage for gaming. The man's not video editing.

Oh god, please don't listen to this advice. You are already on the right path, ignore the above!

I have never heard of your PSU. Hopefully you can get some input on that before you buy it. You want to get a quality PSU for your system, not saying your PSU isn't a quality unit, I have just never heard of the brand so I am not positive.

I'd grab this psu instead if you're ordrig from proshop: http://www.proshop.dk/Stroemforsyning/Corsair-Enthusiast-Series-TX750-V2-2248313.html
From dk myself and quite frankly proshop has alot of quality psus in stock.

The PSU suggested by Krahl is a quality unit, but it's overkill for a single-gpu system. Good if you're considering a future upgrade to 2 graphics cards. Overly expensive if you're not. A better PSU for the system you're putting together (because it's cheaper) would be the Antec 430:

This avoids the problem of potentially harming your system with a POS power supply like you originally linked and paying too much for wattage you don't need. (Yes 430w from a quality power supply will be more than enough even for heavy overclocking of all components with room to spare.) Note the Earthwatts series doesn't come with a power cord to the wall, so if you don't have an extra of those you'll need to pick one up.
