Decided to register since I am going to buy this case as well as the Maximus VI Impact. Much easier to go with a red and black theme than the yellow/gold and black them with the Asus Z87I-Deluxe.
What I plan on buying between now and 2015:Corsair Obsidian 250DAsus Maximus VI ImpactIntel Core i5 4670K 3.4GHzCorsair Hydro series i100eVGA Superclocked GTX760 2GB w/ACX coolerG.Skill Ripjaws X series 8GB DDR3 2133Western Digital Black 1TB WD1003FZEX
(OS)Western Digital Black 2TB WD2003FZEX
(Storage)Asus Black Blu-ray drive
(also a DVD/CD multi writer)
I currently have a Corsair HX650W PSU, and plan on getting Corsair's red sleeved cables. The flat cables tend to be stiffer and more difficult to work with. Later on, I plan on upgrading to the Corsair AX760i PSU
. Also, I later plan on upgrading to a Intel Core i7 4770K
and CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3 2133
or its equivalent when DDR4 RAM comes out (along with appropriate DDR4 motherboard from Asus). My next planned upgrade after this one, should be around 2016/17. I do want to get a 1TB SSD from Samsung to eventually replace the 1TB Seagate.
I also currently have a eVGA Superclocked GTX560 1GB video card. A Intel Celeron G1610 2.6GHz dual core, 4GB of G.Skill DDR3 1600 (Can only run at 1333 with the Celeron), and a 320GB Sata II Western Digital that is 4 years old (for the OS), and a Seagate SATA II 500GB drive that is 5 years old (for storage). The thing is, I didn't realize the Celeron would be so slow with just 4GB of RAM, as I switched from an AMD system (AMD for 13 years), a Asus M4A88TD EVO USB3 and AMD Athlon II X2 260 (using the same 4GB I am using now).
Basically, the current system is a budget build switch to Intel, because they currently have superior CPU's, and the concern of AMD possibly going out of business in the future.Edited by Blackspots - 4/19/14 at 1:30pm
