First build Final thoughts

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok so just need final thoughts on my first build before i buy the parts if you guys have a suggestion to make i would love to hear it and why

Buying from Newegg because fast shipping (mostly free shipping) and cheapest prices i could find.

Red means i have not bought green means i already have it
Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146068

Mother Board- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-651-_-Product

Power Supply- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005


HDD

DVD drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106335

CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103727

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

OS- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116758 This one is fine right?

CPU heatsink- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106150


Graphics card

Ok so this is all the parts for the build which is going to be used for gaming in games such as WoW, Sc2, Diablo 3, other rts, and almost any fps game.

majority of gaming will be WoW want to be able to play with pretty much no lag and have most ultra settings but not all.

Are the parts i have going to build a good gaming computer? do i need to switch anything out?

I want to do some light OC for now so i also will need to buy heatsinks for the mosfet.

tips, pointers, or suggestions would be loved thank you guys!

I would pay 10 more and get a corsair h50, also you might as well get a x6 for 30 more too.

Aside from the motherboard (with your tower cooler paired with the unheatsinked 4+1 mosfets on that board and 125W processor, overclocking would be very dangerous and shouldn't be attempted at all) everything else looks good to me

I recommend minimum 6+2/8+1 power phase (preferably 8+2) and mosfet hetainks. If you can still return that motherboard to Newegg, do so and get this one; for the same price you get much better power phase, Crossfire 8x-8x capability and other great features.

For gaming is the x6 really going to make any difference fps wise? from what everyone has told me the x4 965 is going to be more worth it.

Maybe i can find a cpu+mobo combo deal at newegg, i have had people on youtube tell me they use the same mobo with a x4 or x6 and that they oc with no issues, but this is my first build and i have never done a lot of this and i do not want anything to catch fire or break cuz that would just make me cry =[

edit: I found this one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.580650

my only issue is price for it i can get it but that would be my spending money till next month really wish i would have waited on that mobo
