Latest high perf gaming build $1400

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Whats everyone think of this new high performance gaming computer build I have in mind? Not 100% sure on any of these parts ( especially the mobo, processor, and SSD ) I just got various recommendations. I plan to of course install games and OS on the SSD ( first time I ever got one ). I also don't plan to overclock so I think a stock cooler is good? I know some will recommend 3rd party heat sink fans but I've had tough experiences installing my tuniq tower 120 with the whole slabbing on thermal paste ( do the stock coolers use thermal stickers? ). Also is the 850W PSU overkill? I wanted to make it a bit higher to handle any future graphic card but don't plan to ever go SLI or anything.

optimized build:

Why are you buying two dvd burners?

I think you should go Bluray /DVD burner

I would go with the ASUS Sabertooth Motherboard, other than that everything else looks good.

good question I really don't need 2 dvd burners, I will probably just get a dvd player for the other optical drive. I don't plan to watch blu ray movies or burn them on this computer.
