Hey forum!

I'm planning on buying a new pc but have no idea where to begin.

I don't everything, i already have: 2 HD drives of 300 gb, cd/dvd drive.
I still have an old evga 9600gt and want to replace it or use it as sli.


I would like to upgrade to i7 and an ATi graphics card.
I will buy it in Holland but you can use newegg.com to make the build.

i hope i didn't forget anything, and all comments are helpfull.

my res is 1920x1080
im planning to go either way, i think ATi is better then Nvidia though so probobly crossfire.

and overclocking is a maybe.

but ill look at the build you gave me..

oh and ill say i think im getting a cooler master storm scout case.

if your are going to overclock search for the cm hyper 212 plus and put 2 fans on it and it will beat some 60$ coolers

the scout is an awsome case and if you remove that ssd you can get the radeon hd 5970

yea i didnt really need an ssd so ill get the better gpu :) 

thy for the help guys ill post my build when done!

ok i have my build its right here:
http://azerty.nl/winkelmandje/winkelmandje/?legen=1&pro...[234666]=1&product[269467]=1&product[68468]=1&product[230038]=1&product[226356]=1&product[245968]=1

this is 1.144,74 euro so its 1403,22 dollar. its a bit over but thats ok

these are the newegg links:

cpu cooling: Noctua NH-D14
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

psu: Corsair TX750W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo: ASUS P7P55D
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Gpu: Sapphire RADEON HD5870 Eyefinity 6
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ram: Corsair Dominator-GT 1600 cas-7
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cpu: Intel Core i5-750
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i could replace the HD5870 with a non overclocked one and oc it myself but ive never done that before. And im a bit sceptic about the mobo.
oh and the Noctua comes with fans right?

sorry the link to the site im buying from doesnt seem to work.

hope this one does: http://azerty.nl/winkelmandje/winkelmandje/?legen=1&pro...[245968]=1&product[226356]=1&product[230038]=1&product[68468]=1&product[269467]=1&product[234666]=1

or els u can check the site its: Azerty.nl

The Eyefinity 6 5870 has 6x mini DisplayPort outputs, and has no DVI outputs. Are you sure that's the one you want? I'd think that you should just get a regular 5870 from Sapphire, XFX, Asus, or whatever you can find.

Otherwise, the build looks decent. Based on the newegg link, it appears that the DH-14 comes with fans, as it lists 2 different size fans in the specs.

Yep, the NH-D14 definitely comes with 2 fans.
