Would this be a good rig?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I don't know, I was bored so I was looking around. This is a very costful rig, but I just want to know would this rig be good. It is inside my signature, check it out and comment. There's still a lot I need to learn. ^^;

There are better options than the OCZ PSU and the kingston ram. Other than that it's good.

I was thinking about watercooling, but then I might be clumsy, and I'm not sure what you should do with watercooling, I have that paranoia that the tubes will break or something. I was debating on another two PSU, but I wasn't sure. I chose the OCZ since it has the highest watts.

The other two PSU:

If not going with watercooling, I was thinking abotu getting a Zalman fan or a TT120, but not sure, since they each have their good. TT120 is most criticized for it's size, so I'm a bit weary on that.

For the kingston ram, I thought it was good since it was pretty high with the frequency thing. I was thinking about getting something cheaper and more rams for the same price, would that be better?

The Corsair PSU is much better than the GameXstream. Amps > Watts.

Haha. Rams?

I agree with Clavin. The Corsair HS620U is probably the best PSU under $200. It has 50 amps to the 12v rail, great stability over 80% efficiency, looks great, 5 year warranty.

In my opinion it's the best power supply, but of course if you plan on SLI 8800 GTX's, over-clocked Quad, 10 hard drives and a microwave running on your system it's good to get a 700+ with at least 60 amperage.

The Corsair ram isn't... that good. I mean it's okay, but for the money you could do way better.

This G.Skill 2gb kit is probably the best you can get.

$109.99 for the 2GB kit, it uses Micron D9GMH IC's, can over-clock to 1200 easily or 900 with tight timings.

I'll analyze the rest of your build in a few.

Also, with new technology out, you might want to get a P35 chipset, it's the newer chipset and will likely be the over-clocking champ of the future.

This P35-DS3R is $139.99, has solid caps, great over-clocker. It only lacks SLI support, but you'd be better off selling the GTS and getting a GTX in the long run. One high end card will always beat two lower cards.

EDIT: Btw, I love Suzumiya Haruhi.

As everyones been saying the PSU leaves a bit to be desired. I prefer to go with FSP, but there quite a few other good brands out there, like OCZ, (as some have said) and so on.

Now, if you plan to OC, (Which I assume you are cause you want a CPU cooler) Then you could get a slower C2D, and save some money. Cause most of the C2Ds OC pretty well. And you could probably OC a 4300 damn near as high a some of the faster ones would OC.
'bout time.

620 watts would be good enough right if I were to build this rig, I still like the evga board better though. I'm planning 2 pata hard drives, one used with a hard drive rack another as an os. Then one optical drive with one sata slot. Then the other 5 slots I will use it on internal hard drives for storage. And I probably will not over clock the graphics card, maybe later on, but if I do, I wouldn't do it now. Only overclocking the cpu and rams.

Get a kit of G. Skill HZ's or Ballistix's .
