post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all !
I need help with new Build around $900 for Gaming, Overclocking and Folding.
I think I'll use:
i5 2500K
P8P67 Pro (or P67A-UD4 or wait for ROG Maximus IV Formula, Gene??)
Kingston HyperX DDR3 2GB*2 1600MHz CL9 (or ... ?)
EVGA GTX460 SC (or GTX470 or wait for GTX560?)
WD or Samsung - 500GB, 1TB (Which is better?) (Should I get another SSD for OS?)
Corsair HX650 (or Seasonic S12II 620W or Corsair TX650 ?)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

and please vote for these:
Cooler Master Elite 430 Black
Thermaltake V3 Black Edition
Thermaltake V4 Black Edition



Thanks

If he meant Cooler Master I think he should choose Elite 430 Black or recommend new one for me

If you can find something with tighter timings for a good price, that would be better.

I vote wait for 560.

WD and Samsung both make many different models of HDD. If it's a Caviar Black or F3, then you're in good shape.

(Should I get another SSD for OS?)
If you can afford it, then yes, without question.

For a case you should look at the CM Storm scout and the CM HAF312. Both are very good mid tower cases. Personally I would be holding off on the CPU cooler, they are an expense you don't need in a budget build.

They are rather important when overclocking tho, and seeing as he said it'll be for gaming, overclocking and folding I say don't skip the CPU cooler.
