Need major help on this build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Put this in the main Intel section moving it here.

Howdy OCN, need some help, a buddy of mine is building a rig and the budget is 3k. He has put this together on his wish list. Some things are good, some not so much. I'm going to list all the components and show me what should be replaced. Thanks!

For starters, this is what I recommend
Case: HAF X
Motherboard: I would go with the 1366 platform, as it has six core processor support. I prefer eVGA.
For the CPU, I'd go with the i7 950
For the HDD go for the WD Caviar Black instead of green
For the speakers go with the Logitech z5500 - If you look around you can find a good deal on them
Sound card: Asus Xonar Essence
GPU: I would go with the GTX 480 or sli 470s instead of the 5970. SLI scales much better than crossfire and you have PhysX as well.. and better drivers
PSU: Enermax Revolution 1120W
For the SSD: Intel X25 80GB

I would like to know a little bit more about what this computer will be used for. Hopefully this will get you going in the right direction.
