New 1156 i7 Build - Constructive Criticism?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just went out and bought my new rig - Have been thinking about this for a while and I received the case I wanted on wednesday so I thought "May as well"

I was on a budget so here's what I could come up with

CPU: i7 860 @ 3.6ghz
Cooler: Noctua D14
RAM: 8GB (4x 2gb) G.skill RIPJAW 1600
GPU: 2x Gigabyte GTX 460 OC edition
Mobo: ASUS P55-DE PRO HYBRID
HDD: 2x 1TB WD Caviar Black
PSU: Corsair 850watt
Case: CoolerMaster HAF-X Nvidia Edition (Yes, that "fugly" green one.
Though, I effing love it >:3)
Keyboard: Logitech G19 *Glowing Green*
Mouse: Razer Diamondback 3.5g You guessed it - GREEN!
Monitor: BENQ HDH222H 22" 1900x1080
Misc: Lots of Green Cathodes

I also have other parts in which i have added to it from my previous rig..
Just random HDDs from my old laptops and desktops.

Pictures are on my Facebook -

That's really strange, because I just though about making an EXTREMELY similar build. xD
However, I plan on shrinking it down to a matx Lan party case.

Grats on the new system!

Hahaha that's cool.
Yeah, all those parts have been dropped in price (Australia anyway) Besides the Case...
Is an extremely powerful system with great bang for your buck.

Though, Black ops still runs like a dog @ 150fps average.
I mean, compared to MW1 + 2 whcih run at almost 4 - 5 times that amount :/
