I have some cash for a new build. I will be buying from New Egg... I will not be saving anything from this computer except keyboard, mouse, monitor and CASE...
I like to play games and OC my computer. But also, will not tinker with it for a few years...I have had this one for sometime now and its moving on to be the kids computer.
So, items I need and what I am considering
CPU core i7-875k 1156
MOBO Asus Maxiumus III Formula 1156
MEM Corsair Dominator 8gb DDR3 1600
PSU Corsair 850HX
VIDEO Need help....Upto 400 to spend.. I like quite fans.. I have Accelero X2? what ever the bigger one is.. make a suggestion
HD Thinking of going with SSD....Not sure
Heat Sink Thinking Noctura NH-D14....
I havent paid attention to computers other than to use them for the last few years...Any counter suggestions? I like to know the why's and why not's....
*The Cooler Master Hyper 212+ can be found on amazon for $30, newegg has it overpriced right now
and for a pure gaming build, you won't need more than the 6GB of ram (or even 4 really). The i7-930 should be able to hit 3.6GHz, and a bit higher if you like more speed (though i don't think it will be necessary)
though what case do you have now that you want to keep? a new case that is good is only around $100
