Need help with my rig.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First of all, my budget is around $1500.
I have a PNY Nvidia 470 to use.
And I want to be using the 2600K as the CPU once it's re-released.
I haven't really researched if there have been any new 1156 boards, the only I know of are the three from Gigabyte and ASUS.
And I'm relatively new to the whole computer-making process, so explanations as to why-what-etc etc, would be nice with the parts you recommend.

I kinda know how CPU, graphics, mobo, and RAM works - I generally need cooling help.

I think I also want to use the Phantom NZXT White case for the computer, if that's compatible with the parts of course.

I also will need a new monitor, hopefully looking for one of those Dell IPS monitors that I've been hearing have amazing quality and deals lately.

And that's about it. I think.

HELP. Please and thank you.


EDIT:
I'd also like to run an SSD as my boot drive...
Preferrably 64-128GB?
And probably like a 500GB internal for storage. Thanks again~

You'll need a 1155 socket board with second-generation Core chips (like that 2600K Sandy).

I would go with an ASUS motherboard. 1155 socket.

p67 mobo of course. you probably don't want the micro-atx version because it would just look silly with a micro-atx mobo in a fullsize phantom case.

If you never gonna SLI or Crossfire then p8p67
If you might, p8p67 PRO



I'd recommend watching this youtube vid to see the differences between them so you can choose which one is best for you


But I'm kind of an ASUS fan, so I'm impartial.

Just get a motherboard from a well-known brand, ASUS,GIGABYTE, etc. and then look at what features you'll need and then just get the cheapest.

These guys price really competitively so in the end, if same price between brands, just go for the coolest looking one. really won't matter.

so this is my suggestion
Case: NZXT Phantom
PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series (this should be plenty for all your purposes possibly even overkill)
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1tb 6gp/s (fast and 1tb of space enough said)
Ram: Corsair Vegeance 8gb (this one uses max speed of mobo and i highly doubt you will need more than 8gb unless you do intense video rendering)
Processor: sandy bridge i7-2600k
Mobo: Gigabyte p67a-ud7 (i linked you to this sight because it is not on newegg because of the sandy bridge problems you can also get the ud5 or ud3 version for less, which ever best suits your needs for a mobo)
SSD: OCZ Vertex 90gb
Screen: Asus vw246h 24" (this is my opinion is one of the best screens in the market, i have one just amazing with the resolution and color quality)
DVD drive: Asus Black DVDR x2 (this optional if you want)

Now for cooling not sure what you prefer? Watercooling or air cooling?
if you do a full water loop is roughly $250: this one should be fine for you system (i can help you find parts if you want to make a custom loop)
the second option is just to wc the cpu which is a lot cheaper and you still get the same performance as a full loop such as this Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50
with air cooling: SpinQ VT (this should be suffiicient for any ocing you plan to do)


so total cost is $1600 (price included 2 dvd drives and the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50; probably around $20-30 extra for shipping)
with rebate $1580
