Hello / Need help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum and i am seeking help with a new build.

this is what i have in mind:

Thermaltake Armor+ Black VH6000BWS - CASE

Intel Core i7 950 - CPU

MSI GeForce GTX 460 Hawk 1GB x 2 - GRAPHICS

Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB WD10EALX x2 - HDD

Corsair TX-950 - POWER SUPPLY

Corsair CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 6GB (3x2GB) Dominator GT - RAM

Corsair Hydro Series H50 -CPU COOLER

ASUS Rampage III Formula - MOTHERBOARD

Other Random things im ordering:

Lite-On iHBS212 12x Blu-Ray Disc Writer with LightScribe
Logitech MX518 Gaming Optical Mouse
Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit OEM
BenQ GL2430HM 24 Inch Widescreen LED Monitor with Speakers


If you have any suggestions or anything that might cause faults please let me know, I am curious about the cpu cooler. I was going to get the extreme motherboard but i cant see me doing that much overclocking plus the forumla is $100 cheaper.

Thanks

Make the following changes:

CPU: Core i7-2600K
MB: Asus Maximus Formula 3-P67 or Gigabyte P67 UD#.
RAM: G.Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600 Ripjaws
GPU: 6850s - Faster than the 460s for the same money, unless you prefer nVidia.
Case: HAF 932 - It has superior air flow to that old Armor+ and is $40-50 cheaper

I would buy AT LEAST the CPU and motherboard used from some of these guys here on the forum. If they have good feedback then there is nothing worry about as you find what features your wanting.

I would have said wait on 1155 a few weeks ago but now im not so sure... at least wait until Intel releases more CPU's that don't force us to pay more for features we don't want and won't use.

Or just wait for those things to go on sale (or similar items) and buy them then. I am sure you could find a better monitor then a BenQ for cheaper.
