2 power supplies because i'm not sure which i should get. also still need suggestions on the hard drives and mother board.

That looks like a really solid build and I hope you enjoy it for many years!!! biggrin.gif

If you want to save about $40, you could order the XL2420T from the BenQ site. The coupon code MLG$50 knocks $50 off the original price of $399.

Looks good! thumb.gif +1 on going with the evga superclocked.

If you are feeling generous with your money, I would upgrade the psu to the Seasonic X750. Runs cooler and quieter, better ripple suppression and voltage regulation. It is just a much better power supply but it does have a higher price tag.

ur only using a 128 ssd for your ENTIRE storage? gl w/ that.
plus take into consideration; windows 7, keyboard, mouse, mousepad (if u want), speakers, extra fans for case, and you have no case listed?

edit: saw u had 1.5 tb hdd also. but all the other stuff u still may need?

I have all the above you said. I do not have extra fans but my case is a HAF 932 so i dont think i need them or atleast not right now. I also dont have ram listed but it comes with the motherboard so i'll use that for now buy some samsung later.

I would get the GTX 670 2GB for 100 less (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp42678kr) and it gets basically the same exact results in benchmarks. Also I would recommend this CPU cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835288001&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=. Plus your system won't use over 500w, drop down to a 650w and still have that extra cushion for OC and dual GPU setup.

As someone else mentioned get a different HDD. The Samsung drives are now re-branded Seagates. WD Cavier Black is prob your best option.

I was thinking about going with WD on that drive but wasn't sure. I guess ill go ahead and look into finding one to update my build.


Also trying to decide on the monitor. I hear i should go 120 hz, so i have been trying to find a good one. I was going to go BenQ XL2420T but i keep hearing bad things about it ghosting. I also hear the Asus VG236H is really good. But it comes with 3d stuff that i don't care about. Any other good options anyone can recommend or cheaper ones that do just as well?
