Final Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After weeks of planning and research I've put together my build. I've looked at a lot of different possibilities, arranging from AMD's 6 core to intel's i7 950, and Sandy Bridge. I weighed all my options, and decided Sandy Bridge gives me the best value.

Here's my build:

Cpu: i7 2600k
Mobo: Gigabyte P67 UD5
Gpu: eVGA GTX 570
Memory: Mushkin Radioactive 4gb
Cooling: Noctua 12P or Rasa 360
Psu: Undecided
Hard Drive: Samsung F3
Case: Raven RVO2

I'm still undecided on what power supply to use. I think Corsair is my best bet, but how big of one should I get (I do plan on adding a second video card in the near future).

Anything you think I should change?

A 850w psu from Corsair/Antec/Seasonic should serve you well. BTW, if budget is not a problem, why not adding a SSD

I wouldn't limit yourself to Corsair power supplies. Corsair doesn't even make any of them, so don't feel like they're the only good ones out there. Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair, Silverstone, etc all sell some good ones. I've seen some really good deals on 750 watt units lately and even though that's overkill for your system, it leaves you with some extra and won't cost you much at all.

I'd say corsair is your best bet, just make sure you have enough amps on the 12V rail for your 570. Shouldn't be a problem, as most of the corsair psu's I see are 50+ amps. But, with that in mind, theres no such thing as too much power If you can afford a more expensive PSU:

this will be more than enough, with room to expand

I have a mid-level budget at $1,500.

I just assumed Corsair was the best. They seem to have great rep. I'm open to any brand as long as it's something that will perform for me.

Also, I'm open to any ideas for improvement. If you can build a better system for my budget, by all means, tell me.

Corsair/Antec/Seasonic are all good brands for psu. Your current config looks perfectly fine and I guess SSD might be your first future upgrade.

What's the benefit for going SSD?
