New Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am planning on selling my sig rig, which goes as follows...

AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition
Asus M4A79XTD Evo
Team Elite 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3/1600
Asus Radeon HD 5850
2 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB in RAID 0
LG GH22NS50
Cooler Master Silent Pro 600W
Customer's choice for the case
Corsair H50

This means that I will have money to spend that I get from that + the $645 I got for Christmas/Birthday ... I obviously don't want to spend all of it however, considering that I just want a computer that will be able to carry out the following functions...

Smash Valve games like TF2, CS:S and multiple Half-Life 2 titles @ 200 FPS+ Maxed Out @ 1440x900
Encode DVDs to an iPod Nano res/format on Handbrake
Folding
Bechmarking/Overclocking to contribute to the OCN community

So basically I just want a nice build which does light gaming, but at high quality, encodes, folds and overclocks like butter. This is kind of what I am looking at purchasing, nothing else... and if anyone has any parts they are willing to sell to me, I will be happy to take it off them ...

-Nicely OC'ing CPU (can be server/desktop) that will be able to support my card/s for folding and light gaming and will also be able to encode fairly nicely
-Supporting motherboard that is known to produce the highest possible OC's
-Nicely OC'ing 1600MHz+ Memory, and depending on the channel type and memory controller 4GB-8GB set
-Graphics Card/s that overclock very well and also owns valve games and the folding algorithms
-High performance DVD burner
-Good quality PSU with plenty of headroom for OC'ing and provides maximum stability and power one each rail to prevent mess ups in benching
-Attractive looking case with side window, 2.5" ssd bay, tool-less design, good cable management, excellent air-flow for maximum OC'ing and that is good for modding
-High performance, premium air cooler
-High performance N wireless card for my D-Link Gamer Lounge Router

There are other parts which I have already purchased that ill be included in the build...

G.Skill Pheonix Pro 60GB
2 x Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB in RAID 0
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio

TYVM for any help

Definitely get, for the essentials:

i5-2600k: $319
GA-UD5: $239
Lian Li 7FNWX Case(Brushed Aluminum, tooless, side-window): $169
Seasonic X650(Gold, +12v rails): $135
4GB G.Skill Ripjaws: $54
GTX 560: $249(Upon release)

Or swap all that out for a i5-2500k, GA-UD4, GTX 460(s) for less money.

You'll still see a decent jump in performance over that Phenom 2.

Actually I have come up with another idea!!!

Instead of selling my whole rig... I could keep some parts and then part out the rest of my system... I am thinking that I will keep the following parts that I already own...

AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition
Team Elite 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3/1600
G.SKill Pheonix Pro 60GB
LG GH22NS50
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
Corsair H50
Bunch of LED/Silent/High RPM 120mm/140mm fans
Generic 4-Port LCD Pannel Fan Controller w/ 7-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader

Then I will pick up some extra stuff from this guy that I know in Hong Kong. I get about 10% off US prices, with the extra 10% discount I get from using my Mainland Chinese currency !!! I am really looking forward to pushing my 965 to the max with a good board that isn't "green" ... I mean it can already do 4GHz with the board I have currently!!! So this is what I am thinking of picking up from the store with cash I get from unused parts and my $645 birthday/Christmas stash, and remember this is for some light encoding and gaming, mixed in with a lot of benchmarking and folding...

MSI 790FX-GD70
Corsair AX 750W

After I see how much these cost at my computer store... I'll see how much I have left over for the following...

MUSTS
Nice airflow case from my local computer store
High PPD GPU setup w/ good OC potential

MAYBES
24" monitor
Nice pair of headphones

The above purchases should make for a good upgrade
