First Build: X-Creed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have everything ordered, should be here on Tuesday. I've been wanting to build a computer for about ten years now, but never had the funds (I'm 22), but my tax refund was good to me this year. So freaking excited!

Anyways, here is what I'm getting:
Cooler Master HAF-X
Intel i5 2500k
Asus Sabertooth P67 B3
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 1600 Ripjaws X
2x Seagate 1TB HDD
Palit GTX 560 Ti 2GB
OCZ ZX 1250W PSU (I know this is overkill...)
LG Blu-Ray Burner 10x
Thermalright Silver Arrow
Arctic Silver 5
NZXT Sentry 2

In a few weeks I'll be adding:
Another Palit GTX 560 Ti 2GB for SLI
3x Dell u2211h or 2311h (Depending on sales, will use my 40" LCD TV until then)
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB or 180GB SSD (Depending on supply and cost)

Let me know what you think and if you have any tips for a n00b!

My thoughts exactly. That and I was able to get a great deal on this one. Newegg has it with a discount for 10% off, plus a $30 rebate and I had a promo code for $25 off. After rebate, it cost $160.99, not bad for a 1250w PSU in my opinion.
