My first Intel build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I've built a few systems in the past but I've always gone the way of AMD. Let's face it, AMD is far behind in the CPU world and in motherboard ship sets (next gen 1090FX chipset still wont support PCIe 3.0) so the choice was obvious as far as the CPU goes...as for everything else I think I made my final choices but I welcome any feed back. Keep in mind this rig will be for some pretty intense gaming and 3D modeling with Solidworks and Blender, running up to 2 virtual machines at a time and I will be purchasing everything within the next few weeks:



CPU: Core i7 3770k
Cooler: Corsair H80
M.B.: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
Ram: Mushkin Blackline DDR3 1866 16GB (4X4GB)
Graphics: Radeon HD7970 GHZ Ed.
SSD: Crucial m4 128GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200 SATA 3.0 2TB
Power Supply: Antec High Current Gamer 900w


and the rest is all fluff. For the case I'm gonna keep using my current Cooler Master HAF 912 as I bought it less than a year ago when my last case's front USB's broke.

I'm trying to keep it under 1600 but if anyone feels that I need to improve in an area let me know, otherwise I'll keep you all updated on progress once it starts thumb.gif Thanks.
