New PC for New Years

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am upgrading well you can say starting over with building my PC, from the signature one.

Heres the list of items I ordered last night on NewEgg.

Blu-Ray: Asus Blu-Ray Burner light scribe
SSD: OCZ Agility 120GB SATA II MLC (main OS)
Graphics: XFX HD6870 Black Edition
Heatsink: Noctua NH-D14 120mm and 140m
PSU: Antec 1200W Continuous power (might be overkill)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
Mobo: Asus Crosshair IV Formula (Forgot to order lol...)
Memory: Corsair Dominator GT 8GB DDR3 (2x4GB)
Case: Antec Lanboy Air Red (mainly for the modular case.)

what do you guys think? pretty good or could do some better upgrades?

my budget was not to go over 2500$ USD

EDIT: Or could i get a gigabyte 890FXA - UD7 and get the same or better overclocking and performance power?

At that budget you should be at least getting a good DDR3-1600 low latency kit.
the 1200W is overkill unless you plan to run CFX... though it would still be overkill

hehe yea I thought so but I do plan on getting more GPU's on the MOBO.. I never spent that much on a PC and was worried about Memory compatibility with some Motherboards, and amped to get Crosshair Formula and not the Gigabyte, as for the memory I ordered, I can always buy new ones.. any recommendations?
