Just joined overlock.net. I've been browsing these forums quite a bit lately to get some insight into building my first computer. This is what I plan to build and I would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!
Case - Corsair 800D
PSU - Corsair 850W Gold
Motherboard - Asus Maximus Formula V Z77
CPU - Thinking about the new ivy bridge i5s. I've heard that gaming rigs don't require top of the line CPUs. Also heard that the performances improvements for higher end CPUs just aren't worth the price tag so i thought i would save some money here. Still in the air and looking for advice.
GPU - GTX 680 x2
Been a little confused since the release of the 690. If 680s in sli perform slightly better than the 690 why not go with the 680s.
*if they are ever available...*
16GB Corsair RAM 1600
Hard Drive - 120GB
Monitor - 30 inch IPS (2560 x 1600)
I am going to water cooling the MOBO and CPU. Planning on water cooling the GPUs as well once i get a little more experience. I will start a build log for kicks once we settle on which parts to use. Thanks everyone!
