New build, about to order would like last minute feedback

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok... after months of waiting/debating/researching i have finally decided to pull the trigger and order something already, this is what i am thinking of ordering, let me know what you think and any suggestions!


AMD Phenom II x4 965 c3 125w
ASUS Crosshair III R.O.G.
OCZ AMD Black Edition 2x2GB DDR3-1600Mhzh
XFX Radeon HD5970 2GB
2x Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB in raid0
Corsair HX1000W
Corsair Obsidian 800D
Samsung SH-S223B/BEBE
Logitech G9X
Samsung 2343BWX 2028x1152 23IN monitor
Windows 7 OEM home premium

I need a CPU cooler, something cheap (40-50$ fans included) but still effective, this is my first OC experience and i will eventually transition to hardcore water cooling so i just need something to help me till i do.

Will all games support the 2048x1152 resolution on this monitor?

Any hard drives faster then the caviar blacks for the same price? will be going SSD for OS and games next year but want fast 7200rpm drives till i do.

And last but not least is the ram good? I LOVE the marketing job on it, the branding of it makes me want it badly but if its crap can you recommend something better?


Thanks for the help, i am emailing the list to my computer guy tomorrow at the latest!

I'm not so sure that they will look good, the picture might be distorted or stretched. go for a 1680x1050 or 1920x1080 max resolution monitor, I know for a fact that they are widely supported resolutions.

The obsidian 800d isn't a super high end air cooler(it's better suited for water cooling) but you could get the corsair H50. it was basically MADE for that case.

Xigi Dark Knight will work just fine. $200 for a mobo? ya right. Get a Gigabyte. It's cheaper and will blow to doors off of that thing. $500 for a vid...? Wow, and you did what kind of research? I guess.

isn't the 800D a case?

lol and there are plenty of choices for you: a Scythe Mugen 2 comes to mind though.

good build otherwise but it might be better to go i5 or i7.

Yeah, perfect but a little pricy for an interim solution... cheapest i can get it is like 88$, i guess i could sell it when i get something better.

I just want to get comfortable with OC before i go ahead and get serious about watercooling but yeah i think it might be an option
