New Sandy Bridge Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been trying to order a new sandy bridge set-up for the last two weeks, what I want is as follows;

Asus P8P67 DELUXE
Intel Core i7-2600K
8GB Corsair Vengeance
128GB Crucial RealSSD C300
Thermalright Archon

First the board was out of stock and the date of restock keeps getting pushed back. Then the C300 went out of stock but is now readily available. I was finally told the deluxe was due in today, so I went ahead and ordered everything last night. Today I had an email saying that my payment was refused by my bank (it's a credit card I don't use that often). Also the DELUXE should now be due in another two days.

I spent abit of time convincing myself to upgrade as I skipped the first gen i7's but I really feel that something is trying to tell me not to buy this system, I mean it shouldn't be this hard to spend money!!

Someone convince me either way.

I don't believe in that sort of thing.........I would do it, the first gen i7's are on their way out.

Do it! You've got a good build there. And, there will be some 1155-compatible Ivy Bridge processors that you'll be able to use with your hardware, so a future upgrade is possible.

This may be just a simple security measure put in place by the credit company, since you don't use it often it may have popped a red flag so to speak. You may have to contact them to resolve. Also if you have a spouse, confirm that it hasn't already been maxed.

I have the same MB and its great. I haven't check your items, but as always when using an aftermarket cooler be sure to check for memory clearance.
