Final Check list before I pull the trigger

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I've been patiently waiting for the p67 boards to come back so I can replace my old 775 setup. While I wait for the boards I wanted to get my new build started. I'll mainly be gaming with it on the 22" monitor in my sig for now but I do game on my 42" plasma a good bit too. Once I part out my sig rig I'll be updating the monitors and a few other things. So here it is, tell me what you think:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119225
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139015
GPUs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130568
MEM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233144
CPU COOLER: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181013
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136320
MOBO: To be determined

That's pretty much it. I'm changing the fans, adding a fan controller, and some sleeving too but that's about all. I know the 8gb of ram is overkill for gaming but for the price it's hard to beat so why not. I also thought about saving the $50 on the ram and going with the 2600k but I don't know that I'd need it. The GPUs I already have in my current rig but that's probably all I'll carry over unless you guys think my trusty DA750 PSU will be sufficient for this setup. I'll also be adding SSD too when I find a board or when the c400's come out. Which ever comes first.

why not do air cooling with a noctua nh d-14 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-018-_-Product
and why not get the spinpoint f3 1tb for 55 bucks
post #6 of 17

Ok so if I get with the D-14 it'll will save me about 55$ over the H70 after I remove the replacement fans. The F3 is 65$ at Newegg right now and I really don't need that much space. I don't even need the 500gb space to be honest. I've got a 1tb external backup drive already and once I get SSD I'll probably never need the internal drive anyway. My current rig has 320gb of space and I'm only using about 100gb of it lol.
The wife is complaining about the price as I type this so the 8gb has been reduced to 4gb and the D-14 has been added in place of the H-70. I'm down from roughly $1300 to $1100 without a board or SSD lol.

Ok you've talked me into the 1tb F3 I still need to shave about $60 off this project as it sits right now. The only place I really see to do this is the PSU or the case but I'm pretty set on the case. I don't want to sacrifice quality in the PSU and I think I'll need 850w but could maybe get away with a 750w? So I've got my eye on these.

If you're trying to save money on this build why not reuse your old Antec 900, 750W PSU, and HDD? You said hard disk space isn't terribly important to you plus you have a 1TB, so 320GB internal should be fine, especially if you're going to pick up an SSD later.

Since you already have a 750W PSU I don't see why you'd buy another (unless its going bad or something), especially since you are transfering over your SLi 460s.

1TB Spinpoint F3's are nice for the price, but if you don't need the storage like you said than why waste the money? Just reuse your old drive, reformat, reinstall OS, or whatever you like here. I'm assuming any important files you can easily offload onto your 1TB external.

Good luck with your build, I'm building a new Sandy Bridge too. Hope this helps!
Thank You OCN!
