New build, last minute revising.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I finished picking out the parts for my build and wanted to know if there's any room for improvement. It's going to be for every day use and for gaming. Most of it is in my sig but ill post a picture of it.



revising
And this http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16835103065


I though about getting the p8p67 pro or the asrock extreme4, but have been leaning on the sabertooth, is this a noob-ish choice lol? I mean as far as features go would i be missing anything compared to other boards.
And as far as the case goes does anyone know if it would cause me any problems with airflow/overheating?

I placed an order yesterday but apparently newegg is having problems processing the order (but no problem charging me for it), anyway this leaves me time to make some last minute decisions.

i dont like the case you should go for a case that have improved air flow specialy with the mobo you choose go for the Cooler master haf 922

Very solid build. I've no experience with the case so I can't comment on that. Are you particularly keen on 8GB of ram? It's really not necessary unless you do a lot of audio or editing. Also, you might swap the Caviar for a Samsung F3. These suggestions come from the perspective of saving money while maintaining the same performance/quality.

The haf 922 looks like a solid case, but would it make a huge improvement over the one i picked out, because i really like the aesthetics of that one lol. What about the storm sniper is that one worth the xtra $$.

Thanks loveadventurer. I suppose i dont need 8gb of ram but id rather have some in excess than not enough, unless ofc its really unnecessary. I should note that i already bought the hdd got it for 75$ (sh+tax incl), so i dont know maybe that comes close in comparison to the samsung.

I know this has been discussed before but anyone have an input on sabertooth vs p8p67 pro vs asrock extreme4?

You can OC wonderfully with any of those boards, so it really comes down to features unless you're interested in benching/getting the absolute highest OC you can afford. Compare the amount of USB3/SATA/Xfire or SLI capabilities et cetera of each board and determine if you need the extra feature(s) of the more expensive option(s).

Regarding RAM, some people say having more than 4gb makes general loading slightly faster and it would indeed make a difference using heavy load programs like Photoshop/SONAR etc... if you have the extra money to spend I suppose you might as well get 8, it'll make your PC more versatile.

I play mmo's and would have to say that 4 gig is not enough. I had 6 gig in my last system and that was about perfect. the 8 gig leaves about 3 gig free most of the time in WOW or Rift.

I have 16 GB now though I just kinda ended up with it

The Sabertooth board is awesome I would suggest it to anyone. the p8p67 pro is also great a few of my friends in rl have it and many consider it to be better if your trying extreme oc's.

for me my goal was to get 5ghz. the sabertooth does that great for me in 24/7 use.
keep in mind a 2600k's oc abilitys are random luck really same with the 2500k.
