deciding on components for i7 phase build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i've got my phase built by nol (thanks dude), I kinda fell out of the loop because it's been a while since I've had a working computer to use. Now I'm looking at the benches and $$$ and building this sucka. I've got 2,300 and would like to keep it under that.

here's what i was thinking
CASE- LIAN LI PC-V2010B $319.99, has to be this guy to fit the phase
HDD- Seagate 500GB $64.99, 65 bux 32mb cache 500GB sounds great
PSU- PC Power & Cooling 750W $134.99, $99 after rebate used it before loved it
MOBO- EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 $299.99, good price point good, overclocker?
RAM- CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) $249.00, works w/ mobo, fast?
CPU- i7 920 $299.99, price, still kicks ass
GPU- ASUS EAH4870X2 $519.99, best cooling short of water, ?????
OS- Vista Ultimate SP1 64-bit $179.99

The rest for the stuff I got.

I'm still reading and learning, this is my first phase build so I'm kinda blind in that area.

your comments and suggestions are very welcome

thank you for looking ~bobcool

Yeah, the Gigabyte Extreme is a very solid board...
Might wanna consider a beefier PSU incase you ever wanna upgrade..

Everything looks but if your budget is $2300 you could switch out these to make your build even better and it comes to around that budget price maybe $20 more.

Seagate 500GB $64.99 for Western Digital VelociRaptor 300Gb 10k RPM $230
PC Power & Cooling 750W for Corsair 1000w Modular $260

Everything is great.

if you want high overclock, i wouldn't recommend evga
the new msi eclipse and the asus p6t deluxe are going to be much better than evga's
