New intel build, M-atx, need advice Tags: Build Intel Systems Last response: February 16, 2010 7:16 PM in Systems Share Nysaan February 16, 2010 6:22:59 PM Yo. I know I've already posted a thread, but regarding AMD build. After ton of reading, I've "straightened" up my mind and want an intel build now. Purchase date: Around 25:th march (my paycheck comes then, and i've time to save up more cash, if necessary. Budget Swedish Kronor; 13000 Kr USD; ~1 733,26 $ Pound; ~1 101,41 Note; I'm flexible at budget but it's prefered to stay around the range Usage * Hardcore gaming - Latest games, old games, everything * Adobe products - Make alot of gaming movies and photo editing * Web developement Website preferred http://komplett.se (swedish site) Modekort = motherboard Processor = CPU Minne = Memory Hårddisk = Harddrive Kylning = cooling Nätaggregat = PSU Note; Can take other websites aswell, swedish or other, as long as they ship abroad. Parts needed Components and chassi, except for GPU. Got a ATI 5850 already, unboxed. Brands preferred Intel (1156) - Cuz low TDP, high speed but still cheap. M-atx - Because I want a small case Chassi Antec P180 MINI is on my mind, but feel free to convince me otherwise. As long as it's a M-atx case. Other notes Quiet, fast but cool PC is on my mind, and still stylish My build - feel free to change EDIT: Link to my build fixed More about : intel build atx advice MadAdmiral February 16, 2010 6:59:19 PM Ditch the Coolermaster PSU. It's not a good choice. Stick to Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, Silverstone, or PC Power & Cooling. Switch to the i5-750. It's better for gaming. A 64 GB SSD isn't a great idea. It's too small to get much use out of it. For a gamer, there are better ways to spend your money (mainly the GPU). Switch the WD HDD for a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB or Seagate 7200.12 1 TB. Both of these will be faster than the Caviar Black, not to mention quieter. Pick up some CL 7-7-7-x sticks of RAM. They'll be faster than what you've got. Also, Corsair is typically overpriced, so check out some sets from G.Skill, Mushkin, or Kingston. I'm personally not a fan of the Corsair Hydro cooler. You'd be better off getting a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus or Scythe Mugen-2 Rev. B. Nysaan February 16, 2010 7:09:28 PM How come i5-750 is better than i7-860 for games? Since i've already have a gpu that is good, what should i put my money at instead? None of those harddrives exists on komplett.se No CL 7-7-7 sticks exists on the site, just some random name i've never heard of. " Transcend"? The cooler stays Related resources New Lanbox or other mATX build ( need help!) - Forum AMD or Intel for mATX Photoshop Workstation - Forum Is this a good mATX gaming build ? - Forum Need Advice Before I Buy ( mATX Rig) - Forum MATX i7 build ,,, whats best for me? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Nowhere. Just save it. Then the WD is alright. Then the ones you've got are fine.
