another i7-2600 build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi peeps! im planning to build my first ever computer after taxes get back and after the SB issues get fixed. So i was going to post my thoughts on what parts i might get and see what comments or changes you guys have. I will be doing a lot of gaming as well as other stuff. My budget is around $2000. I will be using newegg and microcenter.

For Mobo, it's hard to find info on which to get as cant find them on any site because of the recall, so any suggestions would be helpful.

I have the 850w PSU because i plan to SLI in the future.

I really like my TP67XE, super solid motherboard for the price.

I'm trying to sell my HAF-932 case. Unless you like alot of dust and fan noise, I'd go with a quieter case. I almost went with a fractal design case, but ended up with a Raven RV02.

If you're planning on SLI'ing GPUs and plan on doing extremely high rez on said GPUs, you're pretty much relegated to the higher end of SB motherboards. Low end boards can do SLI, but in dual-card configuration usually default to 8x and 8x. One board in particular (I own it) is the Gigabyte P67-UD7. It uses an NF200 Nvidia chip to allow full 16x/16x. Granted, if you're playing less than 1080p resolutions, 8x/8x is plenty and you'll probably never notice any difference. (Typically 1-4% per card) But if you're going to do greater than 1080p and/or multi-screen gaming, you may want to take that into consideration.

For the record, the Gigabyte P67-UD7 was $319.99 brand new. I would imagine any other mobo that uses the NF200 Nvidia chip will have the power to run full 16x/16x as well. Anyone with such a motherboard care to weigh in?
