New Build Intel i7 2600K

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking at building a new computer and i would like some recommendations. This is my first computer i will be building, i am planning on doing some over clocking, so i will be looking into water cooling. The main use of the computer will be auto Cad or other CAD software, HD video, and some gaming (BF3 etc). The components i know i am getting are listed below. I would like recommendations for power supplies, motherboards, cooling items etc. My budget is around $1100 or $1200 with no OS.

-Intel i7 2600k
-8 GB or 16 GB of ddr3 ram
-Cooler Master HAF 932 or 922 (which is better)
-Motherboard no clue looking for around $150 or so
-Power supply at least 650 watt $100 or less
-two good video cards that i can run in crossfire mode (1gb each)
-Are the corsair water coolers any good??

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. I am new at this so please forgive my ignorance. I am looking forward to building this system!

16Gb is overkill, dont' bother go with 8Gb or even 4

932 is better

P6P67D whatever flavor you can afford

Going for a cheap PSU is the worst idea you've had

You won't be able to get xfire on a cheap 600psu and have it stable (on a good quality PSU it's possible)

yes they are.

I'd just look at the i5 2500k if you're just going to be gaming as well. The i7 is mainly for multi threaded applications
