Anyways, I could be wrong. The initial information I was leaning on were: http://www.nvidia.com/object/graphics_cards_buy_now.html
And yes the Asus DC Top edition matters, a whole lot. Check out some benchmarks:

I got a gtx 580 for 280$.

I already bought all my parts and they're all build last night, just waiting for sweet cpu to arrive. I think mine is pretty future proof. But I just don't get what's with all the negativity around the i7 2600k Sandy right now?

Last time I checked, it is the most popular and bought cpu of all the cpus? I got the idea from watching all the expert reviews and builts on youtube channels such as testedcom, 3DGAMEMAN, NCIXCOM ect. ect.

GPU: Asus DC Top 550 Ti
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K
motherboard: ASUS Intel Z77 ATX DDR3 2400 LGA 1155 Motherboard P8Z77-V PRO
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast TX V2 Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified High Performance Modular Power Supply CP-9020002-NA
CPU Watercooling: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid CPU Cooler System - Antec
Case: Cooler Master Storm Trooper Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Carrying Handle (SGC-5000-KKN1) -
Ram: Corsair Vengence 8gb (2x4)
Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black)
Western Digital Cavair Sata III
Total: $1035
My parents really want this to be a budget one, but I wanted to make it a bit future proof. Any suggestions? I'm very much into Asus motherboards right now, but maybe a EVGA one with 4 pci express slots z68?
Regarding the Case, omg I just love the new case. Check it out. http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/Trooper/
Now I know I can save money on the case by getting a mid-tower but I want a full-tower just to be flexible in terms of watercooling and airflow.
dude, what are your parents doing. playing bf3? if they are only doing things like browsing the web and streaming movies and stuff, you could get a cheap llano build, or a trinity build when that comes out. why would they need watercooling anyway...

I don't understand why you're asking for feedback when you're obviously not susceptive to any of it. And frankly if a pre-built gave you headaches, you're probably not ready to build your own. You should've just bought a cheap Dell or something.

i agree with this.

its not negativity, everyone is just trying to help balance your system. you chose one of the better CPUs but a terrible GPU. the 2600k is a great cpu, but for the stuff you plan on doing, a 2500k will do you more than fine and save you some cash to get a better GPU. you can stream video, music, play games, surf the net and whatever else you want to do at the same time on a 2500k and you will notice no difference between it and the 2600k.

just using the $100 saved from that, you could have got a GTX 570 which will do you much better than SLI 550Ti. it also comes with less power draw than 2 cards, again saving you money and opening up for more choices for a more suitable PSU.

try to take everything everyone is telling you as a lesson instead of negativity. grow and learn from this and when the time comes to build your next system, maybe build it for your self and give what you currently have to the parents. thumb.gif

I agree. It really disappoints me that Overclock2day says he won't go lower than a Corsair or Antec power supply. What about Seasonic or Silverstone? I would go with Seasonic before I went with Corsair personally. Don't even get me started on the SLI 550 Ti's either. A 7850 or 7870 would have been a much better choice of a card. A 2600k is quite unnecessary as well since a 2500k can handle regular multitasking more than fine.

This is why you ask about a build BEFORE buying it instead of blinding heading into a build.

I agree, after posting a 100x better build he ignores it saying he already bought them?! wth.......

Then says he thinks its pretty future proof, with a gtx 550ti sli?

Ask's for feedback but then argues with everyone.

1400 bucks and a 550ti build? has to be the worst 1400 dollars spent I have ever seen.

I smell troll.....
