My first ever build - $2000 [i7-930 | GTX 470] - [56k]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm about to start putting together my first ever build. All the parts totaled just under $2000. Any tips to help me with my build? I want to make sure I don't miss some crucial step or accidentally break something.

Parts
  • Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-930
  • Memory: Patriot Viper Series 6GB DDR3
  • Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 470
  • Power Supply: Corsair HX650W
  • Optical Drive: ASUS 24x DVD Writer
  • Hard Drives: Hitachi Deskstar 1TB + WD Caviar Green 500GB + Seagate Barracuda 500GB + Seagate Barracuda 200GB
  • Solid State Drive: OCZ Vertex 96GB
  • CPU Cooling: Thermalright Venomous-X + Scythe Gentle Typhoon (2) + OCZ Freeze
  • Case Cooling: Cooler Master R4 120mm Fan (2) + Cooler Master R4 140mm Fan + 140mm Stock Fan
  • Mouse: Razer Mamba
  • Keyboard: Razer Lycosa
  • Monitor: Acer X233H [23" 1920x1080]
  • Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I've already bought everything except the Gentle Typhoons which I will hopefully be getting in the next couple of days.

Wish me luck.

I also need a name for my baby once it's done. I'm open to suggestions - preferably female. Lol.

I've been hearing the Ven-X can destroy CPUs because of extreme pressure on the the chip. But I'm not sure. Hopefully that doesn't happen for you.

But, very nice build! Sooooooooooo many HDDs.
