Mid Budget All around build.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi im new to overclocking but not new to building a pc. My b-day is almost up and im getting a new pc and i can choose the parts So this is what ive got so far. So my goals. Uhm im not going for an SLI build just a single maybe 8800gt card build. Im on for overclocking my processor to at least about 3.2ish to 3.6ish with air cooling or stock fans in case. (do i have to buy extra fans?) I am not looking for a raid0 system either. So thats all. Any suggestions and critic is appreciated.

Get some G. Skill Ram instead of that OCZ stuff..... I would get a tuniq tower instead of the 9700... and I would also get the 8800GTS From EVGA and buy an after market cooler if you want to OC... other than that everything looks good to me and looks like a quality build.

This is the tuniq tower:

And this is the graphics card I would get instead of the akimbo:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130337

And if you are not going SLI I would recommend this motherboard:

The tunic 120, and also I would go for a different psu.
PSU's that I like:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139004

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005 (if you need the power but I doubt you really do)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703005

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256012

Or if your on a budget this will do it but won't run next generation cards:

If you plan on a high-end OC 3.5 to 3.6 go with one of the other suggestions instead of the Zalman 9700(It does look great).For RAM G.Skill 8000 or 8500, plus the Corsair 550 PSU kingsnake2 suggest would be my picks. Good Luck
