First Gaming Rig

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello there, this is my first post, i want to know if this rig is gonna work well and if you would be nice to give me suggestions on what i can optimize or change instead of one of the components, or even better, if you know one better and cheaper that would be great. Take in account I’m from Mexico, and I’ve a limited access for components. Another thing, I'll buy this around September, because i'll have the bucks those days, not before.

Proposed rig: http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/5375813

Thanks in advice.

P.S. Sorry for my engrish(i never took english clases, I don't even know how I learned it).

i suggest these as alternatives . . .

GPU

PSU

and prolly get rid of the H100 and do full with this . . .

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/ra750rswakit.html

maybe someday include the gpu in the loop using this . . .

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fc7970-en-nickel.html

verify if the gpu has a block for it . . .

btw, that 7970 you picked will take 3 slots i believe.

If you are building this pc for gaming then go intel. Unless you are an AMD fan, theres really no reason to go with AMD if you have that budget.

Actually is budget related, if i go with an intel core the cost goes up about 200 dlls, and only for a i5 3rd gen, that's the trouble in México, intel is quite expensive, more than in U.S.A.
