New SB build advice

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Finally upgrading from my qx6850 to a i5 2500k. I will be using this rig for mostly Starcraft 2, cs 1.6, Photoshop, and probably Diablo 3 when it comes out. I will also be adding 2 displays to my 30". I plan on adding 2 2007fp (1600x1200) and putting them in portait mode to match vertical resolution with my 30"(2560x1600) (total resolution will be 4960x1600). I think my bases are covered, but thought I would check with the experts. Please let me know if anything looks out of place or if you recomend different parts (stuff marked new is obviously new stuff, old is stuff being taken from my old rig). Thanks!

How about switching the Corsair TX750 for a modular PSU - the Seasonic X750 perhaps? It was on sale on Newegg a few days ago.

And why not the Corsair H70 for cooling?

I do like the looks of the sabertooth, but the 700d has no window (I prefer conservative over flashy looks) The extra pci slot space is probably good for cooling though, as my GPU's will stay on air.

Modular PSU would probably be nice, but I think if I take my time I can keep everything neat with the 700d's wiring system.

And the H70 is about $50 more. I am already spending more than I should, so really I know I am being kinda "cheap" but tbh every dollar saved is win for me.
