post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Please review my list for my next build and let me know of anything you would change im looking at 1500 total for everything including shipping, that includes keyboard, mouse and monitor i also threw in a large mouse mat. anyways just look at the key components, main use will be gaming at 1920x1080. eventually would like to add two more of the same monitors but not sure when. i would probably add a second 7950 before then too. primary game play is WoW so i do need my NAGA!

You could go on an Intel 3570k build with this kind of money. Included cheaper G.Skill's, the NZXT Havik 140 which is a great and dead quiet high-end cooler with a very good value, the Caviar Blue WD10EZEX (which althrough being a BLue is WD's best consumer drive since it has a single 1TB platter), the Plextor M5S (it's a top-tier SSD, on par with the Samsung 840), the Gigabyte HD 7950 which comes at a great price and is one of the best custom cards, the Corsair 400R which is a great chassis, the Corsair CX600 v2 which is sold combo with the case, the Dell U2312HM e-IPS monitor (much better checkout HardwareCanucks review), a mechanical keyboard which is the popular CM Storm QuickFire (this one has MX Brown switches, my personal pick!), and the Logitech G600 which is a MMO mouse and better than the Naga IMO (see this thread). thumb.gif

EDIT: fixed the Intel variant.
