First build of 2011

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
3/10/11: Updated to match parts I currently have and any parts ordered.



I have been waiting a while to build this computer and as it resonates, I guess I will have to wait a bit longer for some parts.

As it stands right now the parts I have include:

Case - Lian Li Armoursuit PC-P60b
HSF- Corsair A70
RAM- Corsair Dominator 8gb (4x2gb) 8-8-8-24
PSU- Corsair AX850
HDD- Western digital caviar black 1tb
Monitor: Dell u2311h

Parts awaiting delivery!

MoBo- Asus P67 Sabertooth TUF
CPU- Core i5 2500k
GPU- EVGA GTX 560 Ti


Some comments about the PSU is that I was planning on going with AX750 but the AX850 is only $5 on amazon.

I will post pics as I get parts and start building. This process will probably take 2-3 weeks hopefully depending on when p67 mobo's ship.

Thanks guys and leave any comments and suggestions on what I should get or any other changes.

Pics (Sorry about quality, taken with HTC HD7 + I have shaky hands) -

Image problem should be fixed, if anyone can't see images let me know.

Looks good to me, but 4gb ram? Ram is sooo cheap these days, why not just go for 6? Other than that a solid setup! Oh And that 850w PSU is a great unit but wayyyy overkill. You could do fine with a good 500-550w unit on that system I think, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Also I can't see the pics!

I agree 850w is way overkill but its only $5 more than ax750 and that would have sufficed for dual gtx 560 ti's (future upgrade).

6gb is sort of an odd ball, I'll try to get 8gb.
