New Build, Is it ok / got any suggestions?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
CD/DVD - 19$
Case* - HAF 932 X / Corsair 600t / ???(So many good case choices)
CPU i5 2500k 225$
CPU Cooling: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler OR Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler(Not sure what fans to get for this)
HDD's: C300 128GB. 2x Samsung F3 1TB in Raid 0
Memory*: Mushkin Enhanced Redline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996805 (Out of stock currently... any other suggestions?
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. (Is this board enough?)
PSU: Antec TP 750 or 650 (Not sure how much power I need)
GPU: EVGA Superclocked GTX 570
Monitor *: ASUS VK246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor. (Lot of options not sure what to get.)

y main use is gaming, I would like to be able to add 4GB more ram in the future(Worried about heatsink clearance). Also I want to be able to OC, I have read of 5GHz on air and would like to try to get that with the hardware.

I don't need keyboard / mouse.

Thanks

Get one of the HAFs if you intend to stay with air cooling, get the cosair if you want to go water IMO.

For the Monitor I would say get an IPS display if you can afford it.

For that build you need about 600W of quality power if you overclock, a 650 would be more than ample.

Ok so for powersupply I will go with antec tp 650.

Does IPS monitors make that big of difference in gaming? The PC is pushing my budget as is. But if it makes a big difference I can prob find the cash somewhere.

For the case I will go with the HAF X, unless there is another good case that someone recommends.

Thanks for the help so far!

You could always get a regular 570 and overclock it yourself, save the extra bucks.

How much is the haf x going for where you're ordering from? I'd suggest something like a CM 690 II advanced.

Also about the ssds, corsair force series or ocz vertex 2 are awesome.

Very nice. i5-2500k is great value. Noctua NH-D14 probably overkill, could go for something a bit cheaper like a Scythe Mugen 2.
GTX 570 recommended 550w PSU with 38A on 12v, so unless SLI that's plenty. Antec TP 650w fine unless SLI later.

AMD Radeon HD 6950. TechPowerUp has an un-clocking guide so you can activate the un-used cores in the 6950 so it becomes a 6970. It's about $30-$40 less than a 6970. I think a Prolimatech Megahalem Rev.B would be better. The Noctua will cover the RAM slots. It's massive.

I vote Silver Arrow or NH-D14 for cooling. (in that order)

a cpu cooler is never overkill as long as it doesn't cost too much.
