Need help in building my gaming pc

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I NEED HELP IN BUILDING A GAMING PC PREFERABLY A GAMING SERVER.


SETUP:


MoBO: Asus - ATX Motherboard 2000/1600/1333/1066MHz (Socket LGA 1156)
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus%20-...3865134&loc=01

GC: PNY Technologies - NVIDIA GeForce GTX580 1.5GB GDDR5 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/PNY+Tech...&skuId=1623418

CPU: Intel® - Core™ i7-870 Processor
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Intel%26...3865134&loc=01

PSU: Corsair - Professional 650-Watt ATX CPU Power Supply
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Corsair%...3865134&loc=01

RAM: Corsair - 2-Pack 2GB PC3-10666 DDR3 DIMM Memory Kit
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Corsair%...3865134&loc=01

HD: Western Digital - Caviar Black 1TB Internal Serial ATA Hard Drive for Desktops (OEM/Bare Drive)
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western%...3865134&loc=01

Case: MC Storm Sniper



***this is the setup I got. please tell any INCOMPATIBILITIES or sugestions in changing brands or types for each that would make my pc rig better. I already have $850 gift card from Best Buy so I prefer to buy some there. I have a total of $1.5k budget and that includes my $850 Best Buy gift card. I plan to build a game server gaming PC that can run 24/7 if I must. I'm really not sure about this setup and not much informed about details in compatibilities in building a gaming PC. Thank you so much!

A game server doesn't need a high end graphics card.

You'd be better off with 2 machines, a small athlon II build with a few drives in raid, and then your i7 main gaming rig tbh
