A high-end rig with a traditional HDD for the system drive should be a sin. It is the single best upgrade I have ever done.

alright filling out the rest of the list from newegg I went with the xfi titanium for the sound card and the visiontrek bigfoot 2100 network card anything else I'm missing? (besides peripherals)

8GB -> 12GB of Memory is more then enough for absolutely anything, unless your planning on doing some extreme 3D development applications etc.

But Please, If your capable of finding this site, and posting on it, That means your capable of building it your self, trust me it seems much more difficult then you think but its so damn easy, just don't go dragging your feet across the carpet and then grounding your self across the board

(As long as PSU isn't plugged into wall and the case isn't grounded, the system won't be grounded and won't conduct a shock if your carrying static)


SSD's are going to take over eventually just moving into the market, We will see HDD's move out and SSD's move in as price/storage take over, at this point ya I'd recommend specially since its a new build to put in a small -> Medium SSD (64-128GB) for OS and important games, since its unbelievable difference in load times. But a good ol' 1-2TB drive for media storage is still nice, won't see any performance increase in games FPS wise though.

My question re:
~Do you have the rest of the set up for a sound card, 5.1 system etc.

~Why do you want a network card, I've seen them and they honestly in most senarios do little to nothing, its more about whipping local household to get off your internet bandwidth, most motherboards (at least mine does) have decent regulations with bandwidth utilization so important games etc won't be affected by the increase.

Indeed, don't go hitting the order button just yet I think there was a bit of haste put into this.

Let me see if I can get any clarity on the build.

....

Edit:

I would recommend instead of the Video card posted above looking into this one instead:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121412

and getting 2x of those.

Ya newegg, for some reason has a very limited selection of 1155 Motherboards x.x kinda sad actually.

One site I do alot of dealing with, though Canadian not sure how well they provide to the US but next best on my List next to Newegg, is Ncix.com, notable that you could do 99% of the build on there and then use their price match option to match prices found on (Newegg.ca (has to be their canadian site))

But they do have a larger selection of the mother boards but I overall haven't found a ton of info on them >_>... makes me wonder why newegg has such a lacking selection, recall?

1) what would I need? I can just get speakers and whatnot at a later time.
2) I figured I would need one to be able to get onto the internet and what not.

Number one build it yourself, number two 16 gb of ram is literally just stupid, get a better GPU like a 570 and only 4 gb of 1600mhz ram instead

I am having the hardest time with the motherboard suggested is there an alternative or someplace other than the uk site where I can purchase it?

edit: found the asus p8p67 deluxe on xpcgear.com is it reliable?
