Hey Guys...... I want a small advice on my rig

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,
I want you to see my new rig and comment on how it will function as a gaming machine as I am a Hardcore gamer........
I actually needed a high performance computer exclusively for gaming.
I told one of the users of this forum but he commented that this is a " Not bad " build...... He meant the build is neither Good nor bad

I need others also to expresses their thoughts on my new rig ( I am going to buy it next month )....

Intel core i5-2500k
Nvidia GeForce GTX 580
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe REV 3.0 B3 edition
An LG or Samsung monitor @ 1920 x 1020
Coolermaster Sentinel Advanced gaming mouse
Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard
An 750 - 800 W PSU
NZXT Phantom Full Tower Chassis
8 GB Corsair DDR3 RAM
1 TB Hard Disk ( I have 1 Tb installed, therefore = 2 TB )

Other parts I have in my possession.
I am ready to spend around $2000 or Rs 1,00,000 for the above components, so if true, advice any other component that can fit my budget ( the above ones fit my budget ).

Also please explain me the " bottleneck " concept.....
Also I pre-inform that I am going to buy only Intel - Nvidia Combination

Thanks Guys....

looks like a good gaming rig
would be awesome if you'd get a good aircooler or watercooling.

Get the same 1TB drive as you have now so you can set them in raid-0
Nice boost in loading times for games, not as fast as an ssd but alot cheaper to

Good mouse you picked, the only mouse that has worked for over 2 years with me now.

If you ever want to go for SLI i would go for a 850W PSU

I take it you allready own some memory ?
If not corsair vengeance memory is kinda good for the price.

We have exactly the same motherboard XD

Your video card is already very good

How much RAM(capacity and speed) that you will put?

May be you want to go SSD or RAID0 setups in your system. I noticed that my bottleneck now is my hard drives that are not in RAID0.. My booting is just a little faster than my previous system. Look at my signature for my system.

I hope I have helped somehow

In one year, I will get another GTX 580 for SLI, and I will keep in mind for the 850 W PSU.

Also can you explain the "raid-0" thing............ ??

it is not a bad setup at all.... meaning good

if i was going to buy a mouse, i would not get that one.... somthing in the lines of a good logitech or razer...

as in cpu and GPU setup... you will def not have a bottleneck there

i love my samsung monitors... so i would go for one of those over the LG

keyboard is a good choice

hard drive.... got a good one for the os... even if it ends up being a wd black 500gig or 640gig

the case is not my style.... and i am not to sure about how the cooling is on it but in the same price range you can get a haf 932... it is brilliant for air cooling and has loads of space for water and air cooling and has a nice cable management system as well. and loads of space for mods and extras.


that is just mmy small input... i hope you do not mind... i am also a gamer so i know what i like and do not like....

RAID0 is putting two or more hard drives together in such a way that when you do any form of read/write, the performance is doubled.

Example, HD A and HD B. If you copy and paste a file of 1GB, the 1GB file will be split into two 500GB files and simultaneously transferred to HD A and HD B at the same time.

But chance of data lost is higher in RAID0, the more hard drives the higher

an ssd for a boot/app drive, corsair or antec 850w for a lil future proofing. and basically raid 0 is using 2 hdds (at least) and as one hdd. it spreads the data across the 2 drives so that data access is faster because there is 2 data heads looking for the info. kinda 2 heads are better than one theory lol
