So I want to build a pure gaming rig from the ground up. So I went and surfed Newegg for components. I already put in the rig builder but don't ask me how to show it on my signiture. Besides I can't afford it right now but I'd love to have it some day... This is the list of components I searched for.

CPU: (I'm going to reuse my AMD Phenom II x4 970

Motherboard: Asus Crosshair V

Graphics Card(s): XFX FX-785A-CNFC HD 7850 x2

Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1333 PC3-10666 (2 x8GB)

PSU: CM Silent Pro 850W (Modular)

CPU HS: CM TPC 812

Case Fans (Additional): CM Sickleflow 120 Red LED

Optical Drive: Asus DVD Burner

Sound Card: Asus Xonar Phoebus

Hard Drives(s): WD Caviar Black 1.5TB 7200RPMS and Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SSD

Case: CM Storm Scout

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

Cable(s): Coboc 6 foot DVI-D male-to-male connectors

Now the motherboard can support up to 32G of ram so I left 16Gs of ram out if I ever wanted to increase the ram. It's going to cost about...$1,998.03 with an additional cost of $14.57 for shipping. Grand total comes to be $2,012.60. It's going to take a long while to save up for everything.

Sound like a nice build. I would drop the sound card and go with a 1155 setup, and if I wasn't happy with the on board audio then I would upgrade to a sound card latter. Is there any reason you are getting W7 Ultimate?

I agree with GoodInk. If you're building a pure gaming rig definitely go with an 1155 set up. I went with AMD but I have some regrets as the minimum frame rates are somewhat troublesome on some games even with crossfired 6950's, the maximum framerates also are usually not as high either, and the overall performance isn't as good as Intel. There's also nowhere really to go in terms of future upgrades as Piledriver will more than likely be mediocre at best but we'll see. If I was to switch to Intel now, I'd be looking at about $600 as I'd want the equivalent to what I have now, whereas had I made the right decision in the first place, for an extra $50-$100 at the time, I could have had twice the performance. But the way I see it is I learned from my mistake as I was too hasty in my parts selection and didn't do enough research. But if you're reusing your old CPU I guess it makes sense. Personally I'd take the opportunity and just sell it or give it to a family member and upgrade. As for Windows Ultimate you won't need it as the extra features you probably won't use. Home Premium will more than likely suit your needs and save you some cash. As for sound cards I prefer using them as I'm using the Xonar Essence STX since it's great for listening to music as it is an audiophile card, and it does movies and games fairly well. But onboard these days is pretty good and unless your speaker set up is good, or you're using great headphones, you won't be able to utilize the sound card to its full potential. Other than that the Phoebus is a great sound card from what I've read. But all is this just advice. You can do whatever the *&%^ you want to do!
GoodInk, great photo of Jessica thumb.giftongue.gif +Rep to you sir! Your post was also informative as usual.

I might as well go with Intel. ~Sighs.~ I think..no I know I ****ed my pc. I'm using the e-machine my parents use... I was stupid and messed with my 5770's settings and now my motherboard won't boot. My screen would flash and seems like the gc was ******* up...I tried to get into the catalyst control pannel to reset the gc to default but everytime I got near the setting pannel....it ****ed up. Now my pc won't boot.. and I don't have the money to go buy a new motherboard nor have the money to buy a brand new CPU. If you think you know how to fix it without having to buy a brand new motherboard/cpu be my guest. Otherwise. I'm not going to be on anything pc wise as much anymore.

Did you mess with anything inside the case? Will it post?

Try using a different gpu? idk the 5770 may be screwing with the mb but the mb itself may still be salvageable... Always worth a shot before just trashing it. Also, this is highly doubtful anyone would let you do this, but plug your 5770 into one of their pcs (prefferably with a larger psu) and see if you can change it from there
