How would you rate my new build?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am new to the forums =P

Have read alot of the threads posted here, and it has really helped me answer many of the questions I had without having to ask(search FTW). But I would really like to get your guys opinions on my setup before I finally make all the purchases. Enough with the small talk onto the components!



Case: Thermaltake Armor+ MX (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154)

Power Supply: Ultra LSP650 650-Watt (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...sku=ULT-LSP650)

CPU Cooler: XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 I am not 100% sure if this will clear with my setup I tried looking around to find out.. anyone know for sure? (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ek%2bHDT-S1283)

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115027)

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-X48-DS4 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128336)

OS: Microsoft Windows Vista (32 or 64bit? I am leaning towards 64bit)

Video Card: Diamond Radeon HD 3870 (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...3&sku=D10-3874)

RAM: Corsair Dual Channel XMS2 4096MB (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...0&sku=C13-6104)

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar SE16 500GB (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...ku=TSD-500AAKS)

As for the Sound Card right now I am going to use onboard sound, I ate most of my cash up going alittle over budget =P aiming for 1200-1300$ But if ya know of any cheap decent ones, feel free to speak up!

I do plan to OC the system to around 3GHz-3.4GHz after reading up more on these forums(new to OC'n ><" so it will be lots of reading lol)

If you guys can think of anything I left out/Upgrades please let me know. I will be ordering the parts next day or so. I know kind of short notice to ask for final opinions but a few would be greatly appreciated =)

Thank you very much for the help and information you guys have already given me, and the tons of information still to come.

since you're leanin towards the ULTRA psu's i'd recommend the ULTRA X3 series 600watt, its a lil more pricey than what u've picked but its modular and ive had experiences with the x2 750Extreme addition and from reviews and such seems like the new x3 series are even better now..and its MODULAR =]
