My Sandy Bridge build - A once over before i click 'buy'.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I thought i might as well post my build here and see if anyone has anything to add. I just sold my sig rig (cpu, mobo, ram, h50, gtx 295) so this will be my new PC.

CPU: i7-2600K
GPU: Zotac GTX 580 (getting another soon)
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7
SSD: Corsair Force 160GB
Ram: 8GB Corsair vengence CL8 8-8-8-24 1600Mhz

I don't really see anything that can be improved, maybe the ram, but i think it looks pretty good. But as always a 2nd pair of eyes can't hurt.

The GPU and CPU will be watercooled.

Thanks ppl

I have a few VM's with both linux and Windows XP which tends to cap out my current 4GB build, but 8GB is not something i need. But i like to stay above the curve in ram quantity and 8Gb costs peanuts now considering the price of the other components.

I'd considered the Corsair Dominator GT's 4GB, but the Vengence was 8Gb for about 40% less money. It was something i considered, but 8Gb seems like the sweet spot atm.
