Advice on Sandy Bridge Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am getting ready to start a Sandy Bridge build. I have built a few systems in the past but I always like to get a little advice before I pull the trigger. Lets get right to it. Below you will find a link to my wish list.

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=16564026

If that link does not work just look at public wish lists posted today and the name is Sandy Bridge Build.

Ok so to go along with that I will be using a EVGA GTX460 that I already have. All of this will be going in an Antec 900 case which I also already have.

This build is at the very top of my budget and actually it is a little over so if you have any advice on parts that are overkill just let me know. Would love some input on compatibility as well as just if everything in the build is of decent quality.

Thanks for your help everyone!

Looks good, although I would try to confirm that that cooler works with 1155. I have not looked in to the new socket a whole lot, so I cannot comment on that.

I checked the site and it seems like it will work with the mb and will work with the ripjaws.

Thanks for pointing that out.
