Rig in Progress

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...spx?ID=6373854

This is what I plan on buying for my gaming rig. It won't be assembled until probably October or November so several components are subject to change. But if I built it today, this is what I'd get.

Any suggestions? Am I missing anything?

Any and all input is greatly appreciated.

you need to make the wish list public for it to be seen, or you can write out what was on the list

As my sig indicates, I recently purchased an Asus Maximus Formula for $125.65 shipped. Won in it on eBay earlier today. It's too bad I later saw a review for the Gigabyte X48-DQ6 and it outperformed the Maximus Formula. Oh well, I still got a solid mobo.

The GPU I'm getting is listed: HD 4870. The 260 GTX is a little expensive for my needs. I also want to use CrossFire down the road, hence the X38 board.

I'm thinking about going with the DDR2 800 version of the Mushkin Ascent to save a little money. I believe they can hit 1000 and I might be lucky enough to hit 1066. I have dreams of 1200 right now and I figure that's more possible with the DDR2 1066 set.

I would suggest the Logitech G5 mouse over the Razer, unless you need red for a theme.

Actually, I am aiming for a red theme. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
