hi all im new to the boards so hi. but anyways so im building my first pc on my own and i'm looking for some advice on the parts that im getting for it i wont be needing storage i have my old pcs 500gig and a 500 external for media i wanted a Geforce 480 but it was a bit to out of my ball park and i do intend on SLIing in the future
Sounds like a solid, nice build to me.
Yes, it will be probably get hot in there, especially if you're overclocking, so you want to make sure you have really good cooling. I think the 900 two is renowned for that, but still, make sure you get a good CPU cooler and take the time to check the temperatures in your case when you get everything running.
well originally i wasn't gonna buy the dominator's its just that with that crazy bing cash back deal has with tiger direct it kinda seem's silly not too. its 10-13% cash back so i end up getting them with the rebate and that for like 187 in fact i was originally just buying all these parts off of newegg then with that cash back thing from bing i end up saving almost 150 dollars on stuff over newegg so.. like why not get them i figured
the only reason i wanted a 1000w is because i originally planned on purchasing gtx 480. Then saw that 1000w was barely enough for sli so i'm gonna hope the next high end cards are a little easier on the electric bill. I'd just like to ready will 850 be enough? cause that case psu combo is really nice i'm liking that case cause i dunno if the 900 2's stock cooling is gonna be enough for the 470 cause i read it gets hot and life time warrenty or not id rather not burn out my card
hahaha well im looking for functionality and the airflow management is legit in the thermaltake while the 900 might require a little bit of a work around with the side fan and cpu coolers + i kinda like the set up for the thermaltake more i think it will be easier for me to work around this is my first pc im building alone soo im still a newb =p
