Build Ideas & Suggestions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, looking to get a sandybridge build going.

Recently I bought a Lian-li Armorsuit PC-P60 off the forums and got a great deal on Corsair A70 for $25 at Bestbuy.

I can spend up to $1000 (give or take $100) on the rest of the parts needed for the build.

My ideas for the build are:
Case: Lian Li PC-P60 Purchased Already
CPU: Core i7 2600k $300(tax included)
Motherboard: EVGA P67 SLI $200
RAM: Patriot Sector 5 4Gb $65 [Rated at 1333mhz cas 7 but people on several forums have pushed them to 1600mhz at cas6]
PSU: Corsair AX750 $170
GPU: EVGA GTX 460 $200 [Definitely going to stepup to GTX560 when its released later in the month or Feb]
HDD: Corsair F40 $100
HSF: Corsair A70 Purchased
Total - $1035

For storage I already have a WD Black 640Gb.

As for the monitor I will be using is the Samsung p2770fh, which my sister said she can buy for me.

Would like to get some feedback from you guys, thanks.

I would usually get a more powerful GPU than CPU, so maybe downgrade the i7 to an an i5 760 and upgrade the gtx 460 to a 570.

Actually the reason I am trying to stick to 2600k is that when the GTX 560's come out, I will probably stepup the gtx 460 and buy an extra one for SLI.
