Time for new pc, not sure what parts.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Budget is pretty open just don't want to waste money.
I don't need a monitor, keyboard, or mouse.

CPU - 2500k or 2600k(I think 2500k fits my needs best). I do gaming and software development. I might do fraps and some small video editing.
MOBO - I originally thought the giga boards but I think the asus delux or pro might fit my needs best
Video Card - Not sure but I want to do a single card now and maybe sli or crossfire later.
CASE - 800D or HAF932 or other suggestion
Storage - C300 128GB and 2 Caviar black 1TB in raid 0
CPU Cooling - Not sure I have read that cooling won't be as important on new CPUs. Was looking at H50 or H70 but a good aircooler would work also.
RAM - I noticed there isn't a lot of 2133 RAM so not sure which to use.
PSU: Antec TP 750

i would go with the gigabyte board. Just stick with a single card or you have to go with a board with NF200 if you really want SLI to shine.

CPU
2500K for gaming
2600K for CPU intensive tasks (costs $100 more)

Motherboard
P8P67 Pro (does Crossfire/SLI 8x + 8x) $190-$200
Gigabyte P67A-UD7 (has NF200 for 16x + 16x SLI) $320

Videocard
6870 or 570 (depending on resolution and how much you game)

Case
Corsair 800D (I'd definitely go with this)

Cooling
A lot of people are using Megahalems, air can reach 5.0Ghz so unless you want water then air cooling is sufficient

Ram
Someone recommended STT 2133 kits, that's if you were going to spend $200 anyways on some other kit

Otherwise Mushkin or G. Skill low timings:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-120-_-Product


PSU
Dunno, out of the PSU loop for a while, I'm sure Seasonic is still good $25 off promo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-087-_-Product

Only reason you'd want to step up to Asus Deluxe or Evo is if you need the 16+2 DIGI-VRM for the Deluxe, the dual NIC (Realtek+Intel), onboard Reset/Power, and the USB brackets, Evo has dual NIC also but doesn't have the onboard Reset/Power buttons and is only 12+2 for DIGI-VRM. If you absolutely need 16x+16x for SLI then NF200 UD7 would fit your needs though 8x + 8x is sufficient enough for dual GPU solutions. $120 price increase is just not worth it but if you're willing to pay that price you might as well wait for a true 1366 upgrade.

Here is what I'm currently thinking, got till Wed. to decide. Open to suggestions on all parts.

CPU
---------
2500k. I see no reason to go for the 2600k. My main desire is gaming performance and coming from a 4.1GHz dual core "multitasking" should seem a big improvement.

Motherboard
--------------
ASUS P8P67 Pro. I looked at the gigabyte boards but from my reading they overclock the same. Unless the gigabyte boards work better with the video card or harddrives I don't know a reason to get another board.

Video Card
-------------
GTX 570. I'm still not positive I don't want to get an ATI so I'm still open to suggestions here.

CPU Cooling
--------------
Megahalems

Harddrives
--------------
c300 128GB
2x Caviar black 1TB or Samsung F3

RAM
-------------
Still clueless, do I get 2000 ram and either tighten it up to 1866 or OC it to 2133. Or do I just get 1866 or some other speed. (I want 8GB)

CASE
-------------
If I'm only aircooling is an 800D really better than say a HAF - X or some other case?

For air cooling i would go with something else, if you like corsair the 600T is a great case.

The reason I was looking a the 800D was because I was looking at water cooling. Which it appears is not needed so I need a good air cooling case. I'm not particular to any one brand I just want a good case. I had been looking at the HAF - X but if the 600T is better I will have a look at it.

I would get an 800D just cause it looks nice and has potential. Back when I started building computers I make the dumb mistake of not buying a good quality case. I have went through 4 Mid-towers to only end up buying a Full Tower quality all aluminum case. But your case has potential, in the future if you do decide to go water you will not have a problem mounting radiators and a pump and various tubing. However, if you never ever want to go water then go for the HAF case.

But as far as Ram goes, you can still overclock with 1333 Ram sets. AFAIK, the speed doesn't matter much anymore at least for overclocking to 5Ghz+. You only need the 2133 sets if you want to get more bandwidth. I forget where the site was but they tested the ram get 25K MB/s with 2133 and the 1333 were hovering at about 17K MB/s. But it has been reported that 1333 you can still achieve 5.0Ghz overclocks. So it's really up to you if you think you need that 25K MB/s bandwidth.

As far as a GPU, if you're going with Nvidia there aren't going to be a lot of choices. It's either old 460, 470, 480, or the fixed version 570, 580. 560 is suppose to release this month, and they're speculating the dual GPU GTX 595 is coming out sometime this year. Maybe Q2 or Q3 but no official announcement other than it's delayed.
