I am getting a pair of GeForce 8700’s from my brother for the time being but, will upgrade sometime next year (GTX 3XX)
All these parts have been ordered and soon to arrive. (1,077.00 @ Newegg)
I had ordered a Prolimatech Megahalems. Unfortunately it's back ordered and I want instant gratification. This will be my first build and I want to do it right. I am planning on overclocking my i7 920 to around 3.5 - 3.8 sometime in the future. (Maybe after the warranty runs out.) I really don't want to have to buy a new cooler. The Silverstone 120 mm fan I am planning on using is capable of pushing MAX 110cfm. (Hoping it won't be too loud at half speed) So..... I figured I got a second chance at getting it right and came to ask the experts.
The Dark Knight and Scythe Mugen-2 are both really popular (and inexpensive)
You should buy 6 gigs rather than 4 gigs of ram so you can run it in triple rather than dual channel. Also the current power supply is overkill, but if you plan to upgrade your graphics in the future to a faster SLI it might be worth it.
Ooops....... That's the old shopping list. Got some OCZ platinum triple 1333mhz. The dark knight was on my list at one time but then I thought about the i9's or I read about the 6 and 8 cores that may be in the future. I wanted to be sure my cooler will be good enough for them as well.
Spent a good amount of time there. #1 is on back order........ "Phone rings"........
CrazyPC to the rescue.....My Prolimatech Megahalems should show up at my door the same day I get off my boat and go home. That's about as instant as is available to me. And it's Still ranked #1 (For now). Thank you for your input.
