Advice On My Future Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm in the process of purchasing parts for a new computer setup. And I just need some advice in the components I'm choosing.
I use my computer mostly for gaming. Here is my part list:

CPU: i7 3770k
Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper3
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1866Mhz (2x8GB sticks)(does the board support this?)
SSD: x2 Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB or x2 Crucial m4 256GB
HD: 2TB Seagate Barracuda
Graphics Card: x3 EVGA GTX 680 Superclocked Signature 2
Power Supply: Seasonic X-1250
Case: Corsair 800D
Blu-ray Drive (haven't decided which one)

I'm going for a water cooled system, i havent worked out loops or components as of yet.

Looks good to me! smile.gif

I would use this ram instead though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233347
2400mhz cl10, real fast ram and it should work fine with your setup smile.gif If you can afford them that is, not the cheapest on the block!

For SSD's, definitely go with the 840 Pro, they are beasts!

Watercooling wise, I would advise a XSPC RX series radiator, they are really good and best to use with slower fans, so you can get a silent system and great performance!
Pump: Laing D5 or Swiftec MCP655 (same pump)
Waterblocks: EK block perhaps? I like the EK Supremacy for cpu, and EK's gpu blocks are good too.

Good luck on your future build smile.gif
