Holy crap. Thanks for all the replies folks! I went with the 2011 socket because (and brace, noobs ahoy) is because I looked up the recommended mobos, saw the ASUS P9X79 and built around it. Socket 2011 just seemed like a more (and brace again) future proof idea.

Fact is, the thing is the fruition of a whole lot of google searches. If 120 GB isn't enough for a few games and Windows 7 on it, I'll upgrade, but I really thought it would be. Crossfire/Sli is down the road, if I need an upgrade. Feel free to beat the **** out of me tech wise tongue.gif

Is the Noctua ND-H1 thermal paste superior? And do I need a superior thermal paste? Not banking on OCing anything really. I'm the type that would **** it up and fry and egg on the CPU.

How many games would you install onto the SSD?

One or two a at a time and shuffle them. Beat A, uninstall A, get B, beat B, get C so forth.

So far it sounds to me like even a 60 GB solid state drive would be enough.

 

What would you have 'permanently' installed?

I have tried several different thermal compounds and they are all within a few degrees of each other. Arctic Silver works very well and is extremely easy to apply. If your unsure of yourself just watch a video or two on youtube and practice a few times before making the final seat. thumb.gif

OS for booting and some games. Chances are some are going to be staying there semi-permanently. CS;GO, Dota 2, maybe a few titles on top. Wanna get a 120GB just to be safe and stay well within the boundaries of my needs.
Going to use the hard drive for movies, music et cetera (Got a 2TB external Toshiba, too). Grouped all of the stuff I'm buying so far for super saver shipping (the amazon links are there for detail, the websites I'm buying from is actually amazon.co.uk and pixmania.ie. I'm in Ireland, hence I avoid the US taxes.)

As well as that, is 650W enough?
post #29 of 36
TIM schmim..I do like mx-4 a little better than 5..I've been chapstick for last weeka and a half.Ceramique2 is the latest goop,strictly for cheapness and it's not too bad.There is no such thing as "wonder-TIM" It all
comes down to how efficiently the heat is pulled away from the cpu.
Congrats on new build thumb.gif

Yep!  The TX650 is overkill, even if you went with two 7950s.  The TX650 is a quality power supply that is designed to be able to continuously deliver 650W.

 

Would you prefer a modular power supply by chance?
