I have been following this thread for some time and I am very impressed at the builds people have put together, but finally I decided on the 250D. I placed my order this morning and hopefully will get it towards the end of this coming week, stocks are damn limited for these little beasts!
I do actually have an idea for the other components but to be honest I do not have much experience with building PCs. I hope to place the orders for the below components in the next few days.
CPU: i5 4670k
CPU Cooler: H100i
Motherboard: MSI Z87i Gaming.. Went for this one simply due to the awesome colours and design.. been considering the VI Impact mobo also
Case: Obsidian 250D (Ordered Already)
PSU: RM550... I have noticed a lot of other people here use the AX series and some have mentioned the RM series is a major pain due to cable lengths? What would you guys recommend here? I did see an AX series with red and black cables that just looked awesome!
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16Gb DDR3-1600... . anyone know of quality RAM that would match the colour of the motherboard better? Red perhaps?
GFX: MSI N770 TF OC 2Gb.. will this card fit well? I have not seen anyone else using this card?
I noticed people have been buying additional fans, AF140? SP120? with varying configs. What would you recommended to have? swap the 2 fans on the H100i for 2 x SP120? set to intake? swap the front one to AF140 for intake and have positive air pressure?
Regarding any recommendations, budget wise it would be within 30% of the price of the components listed above, I currently live in Austria, Europe if that is relevant. I intend to some some Overclocking at some point
Thanks a lot guys! Keep up the great work on the builds.Edited by Sinate - 3/9/14 at 9:21am
