Is this build good?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've selected all components and wanted to ask if you could check if they are all compatible and good choices, especially for overclocking. Here is a screen with the hardware of the site I want to order from. Thanks a lot.

Since hardware is quite pricey here it costs about 1960€(2955.40$).

The computer should be able to handle todays games on one 24" 1920x1200 monitor on maximum settings. I want to overclock the cpu and the gpu as far as possible(with air cooling) and consider buying a second HD 5970 for crossfire when prices decrease. I may also add more HDDs and optical drives in the future.

CPU: Intel Core i7-920 Tray 8192Kb, LGA1366
CPU Cooler: Arctic Freezer xtreme Rev 2.0
Mainboard: ASUS Rampage II Extreme
HDD: (two)Samsung SpinPoint F3 1000GB, SATA II (HD103SJ) for RAID 0
Graphic: MSI R5970-P2D2, 2048MB, PCI-Express
DVD Burner: LG GH22NS50 bare
RAM: 12GB-6x-Kit Corsair XMS3 PC1600 CL8 Dominator "with Airflow"
PSU: Corsair HX1000W 1000 Watt
Case: Coolermaster ATC 840

Looks like a great setup to build.

Well I think you could get another brand of RAM, maybe a Mega or true for CPU cooler...Maybe a EVGA classified instead of the Asus for your motherboard....

Nope nothing at all... but I mean do you really need corsair dominator memory, when u can get the same performance from another company? The classified is a great board and is less expensive than the Asus board.. thats all I was pointing out.
