I actually don't use PCPartPicker, I do all my builds by hand and add the links part by part separately. I do somewhat utilize their "layout" however. If you look at the end of the part, you will see where each part was taken from and you can simply click the link to be taken right to the exact part from that specific website.
Why thank you.
Although I do agree with the CM Hyper TX3 for that price too because anywhere from 4.0-4.3 isn't too crazy of reachable. Good enough to where the person will see improvements but not too crazy of an overclock that might cause issues.
Not sure on the 840 standard, Sandisk is marginally slower than the 840 Pro to be honest for a decent amount less. The standard 840 costs about as much as a Sandisk Extreme. There quality is up there (although I know what it sounds like, "Sandisk.") But any SSD is good these days, not denying that. Although there are ones that perform better than others. Reliability is pretty equal at this point though.
Ahh!! I didn't both to click on the links...
I'll be going with your build and will be throwing in CM Hyper TX3 or 212 as well. I'll see what I can find on sale with regards to 128GB SSD's.
For the price for everything, It's worth going over budget knowing this should last a very long time. Heck, this build smokes my current X58. I'm jealous!
The only thing I'll be changing is the case to this
NZXT Source 210 S210-002 White w/Black Front Trim “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
I've used this case on a previous budget build with great success.Edited by Ovrclck - 6/26/13 at 2:46pm
