RE: My first PC build & first thread - Page 2

post #11 of 33
The 2500k will tackle what your doing very easily..the new architecture allows these processors to be very powerful clock for clock..the 2500k might be without hyperthreading but the value is outstanding...I assure you try using the 2500k even at stock speeds and you'll be blown away...

There is nothing wrong with amd cards..it's simply a matter of preference...the nvdia cards have technology that will assist you in your video editing and will also be great for games.. the gskill ram im using on my deluxe board is actually quite good as well..its $50 and works splendidly...

Looks pretty solid for your first build But avoid CM PSU, go for Seasonic or Antec

And maybe a OCZ Vertex 2 for the SSD would be my suggestion, The Noctua is a known chiller for air.

Thanks for your comment, so CM PSU is a no go. What Seasonic or Antec should I look at?

I was looking at OCZ Vertex 2 but Intel X25 have had a lot better reviews and less errors, see http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Internal...owViewpoints=1

consider this..reviews from "Credible" sites are not always very credible...for many reasons..ask people that may have used it..intel ssd's from what I know are not as good as corsair or ocz..they are all relatively the same..but, there are better out there...reviews can be helpful..but don't form buying decisions on them

Cheers for your words of wisdom, sometimes you can get caught up in reviews. hard not to make buying decisions on them. at the end of the day its all about the performance by those who have tried.

For the SSD I would recommend: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227705

For the PSU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371050 seriuous amperage and protection for OCP and OVP. Or the seasonic: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151102 indisputable power and reliability.

Funny you mention the OCZ Vertex 2 as this was my first choice before I stubled on the Intel X25. This is definately a good buy atm as the Vertex 3 is coming out next month.

In regards to power supplies Im looking at suppliers in Oz and this is what I have found:

The second link for the 850 Antec Quattro should suit you just fine, and leave room for expansion.

And yes, the V2 is definitely a good buy
