Help Me Scrutinize My Dream Build?... Again

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I've been lurking these forums (mostly the watercooling forums) for over a year now in preparation for saving the money to build my dream comp. My goal is to the best PC I can, sacrificing as little as possible but staying under $3,000 (after tax and shipping).

I would like some input on this build, as this will be only my third time messing around with buying seperate parts and only my FIRST time buying all parts and putting all together my self.

Also note, I will be Liquid Cooling this system, which is where a few hundred is going.

So here are the parts:

Case: HAF 932 Full Tower w/ Side Window = $139.99

MoBo: ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 = $184.99

Power Supply: CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX 1000W = $229.99

Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K = $329.99

RAM: (2 x 4GB) G.SKILL Ripjaws Series DDR3 1600 = $159.99

Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 580 = $499.99

OS Boot Drive: OCZ Agility 2 60GB SSD = $129.99

Data Drive: 2x WD Caviar Black 640GB 7200RPM (in RAID 0) = $139.98

Backup Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB = $59.99

Optical Drive: 2x ASUS Black DVD Burner 24x = 2x$16.99

Thermal Compound: 3x IC Diamond 7 – 1.5 grams = $ 20.97

Thermal Remover: Arctic Silver ACN-60ML = $9.99
(This is for removing the stock cooling on the GPU to install the Water Block)

That is everything i'm buying (excluding theWC parts). If I forgot anything, especially any small things, please let me know!

Thanks in advance!

Looks good (missing OS)...and unless you plan on adding another GTX 580 down the road, you won't need more than 750w to run that rig. smile.gif

Thermal remover is not needed. Isopropyl alcohol (at like...a dollar for a pint) will take TIM right off.

I'll be running Windows 7, I've already got a copy of that.

And I'm going with the 1000W JUST in case I do SLI in the future.

An AX-850 will run SLI 580's. Plus it's a fully modular PSU and can save you a little cable management headache.
