Mobo : Gigabyte EX58-UD4P
RAM : 6GB Corsair Dominator C8 RAM 1600mhz tri channel
GPU : EVGA GTX 295 (reusing)

  1. Yep it's good. Are you sure about the case? Antec 1200 comes with that PSU as well:

  2. i'm looking for a super quiet/good air flow case. and nothing that looks too gamer haha.
    any other suggestions?
  3. I just think you want a bit more room with the card. Your parts are all good except for that.

    These are all high quality cases:

    NZXT Hush

    Still too gamer?

    Cosmos S

    Also, you could just get a TP-750 or such. You don't have to use that CP-850 for the case. It's a nice PSU, but maybe a bit overkill.
  4. I recently just got that mobo. Its damn good and I was skeptical about the 2 oz copper but it really does make a difference. It also overclocks very well and do so with ease.

    Your build is nice but I would suggest getting another harddrive if you can afford to do so. Also are you sure that case is going to fit your GPU?
  5. Here's a link to the summary page of a case review where they talk a little more about "quiet".

    Other links within it may give you some useful comparisons.
  6. I'm pretty sure the P183 can fit it...it's quite a pricey case that's supposed to have lots of room to work with, removable HD cage might get in the way is what I've heard.
    I think I'm just gonna use the samsung HD til SSD becomes more affordable and switch that out as an upgrade.
    Now I gotta wait :(
