okay, I've tried to talk myself into the phenom 955, then the i5, but I just can't do it. i'm that guy that needs the i7. I know it's not the best for my money, but I don't care. That being said.. I don't need a monitor or a graphics card. if it matters, my screen res is 1680x1050 and i'm waiting off on a dx11 card around january. i will not be crossfiring cards, just one, pretty sure i won't change my mind.


APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: windows 7 release date

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: games, programming, IT homework, music, movies, internet

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, gpu

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: intel i7, g skill ram

OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: yes overclocking.... no crossfire....

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050


here is what i'm getting for sure.


core i7 920 - $280
CORSAIR 650W PSU - $100
Western Digital 640GB HD - $75
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - $7
Windows 7 64 Pro - $135
Samsung DVDRW - $32
Antec Nine Hundred Case - 100

i want 6gigs of g skill ram, not sure which set to go for.

i want a mother board that's easy to overclock, ive never done it, but i would like to get the i7 up to 3.2-3.4ish. if i read correctly the evga has a program that does it for you? also would like to have a mobo that auto detects ram at 1600 if possible as ive never gone in and changed settings in the bios.

can anyone recommend a good heatsink and fan that matches up the cpu and mobo combo

again, shooting for around $1100. $1000 would be better.

i heard some of the mobos go bad (my luck it'll be mine.) with those and i'd rather have something easily upgradable for down the road... i just want to know what mobo i should get for the i7.

you missed my post? edit your post. its lacking a lot of info. so i cant suggest a mobo for you when theres a lot of questions needed to be answered.

also you mentioned overclocking, before you do that read some guides..

fix ur post below..

"OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes "

so your not crossfiring..cuz get a 5850..or a 5770..
can you specify what kind of games? at max settings?

i edited post above. ram+mobo

also you dont need a graphics card beyond 5770 because your at 1680x1050

in the end i MUST suggest you go with a i5 750 build instead because your needs dont need i7 920
