After getting advice from a few users here, I've finalized all the components of my new PC build! I am making the last order at newegg.ca soon, and just want to check one more time with the experts out there whether everything will fit and work together. This rig's planned for gaming, graphics and everyday use. Also thinking of doubling the monitor for ps3 playing, though it might be too small... Anyways, here are all the parts I have.
And... that completes my build! Some people have mentioned cooling to me, and I'm open to suggestions on that, though I'm just worried I might screw something up if I try to use a cooling thing, not sure why.
In any case, let me know what you think!
If you spot a compatibility/size-fit issue (BIGGEST WORRY), please let me know!
Thanks for input so far guys, I'm convinced for changing the HD even though I already bought it. But for the GPU, do you think the 4890 won't be good enough at 1920x1080? I'm hoping I don't have to change that as I bought it already for like 200 CAD.
ALSO, I'm looking at cooling despite my fear/worries of installing it, and it seems the coolermaster 212 is the best for this case/i7920/mobo combination. Any insight on that?
Hard Drive - There are no best HD's...what we have are best hard drives for particular applications. Check out the performance charts and pick whatever 500 GB per platter drive performs best under your usage patterns. The 2 TB WD Black and XT from Seagate are good choice but at smaller capacities, you are limited to the Seagate 7200.12 or the Spinpoint F3. The 7200.12 takes the checkered flag in gaming, multimedia and pictures whereas the F3 wins at music and movie maker. See the comparisons here (copy past link in manually, link won't work in forum):
