Hello, I need some feedback on this current build. Just a general build, could be used for overclocking. Please post any better recommendations if you have any. Max price range is 1.2k and I ended up with this build:
Motherboard: EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
What are you using the build for specifically? If you just want a functional build to play around with, you could get one much cheaper. It's generally not advised to get the i7-930 unless you're spending a lot of money (like $1,500 plus) or doing something that requires hyperthreading (encoding, rendering, etc.).
The first thing that jumps out at me is the horrible graphics card. Even new nVidia cards aren't recommended. Instead, spend a little more and grab an HD 5770.
Next, the board isn't the best choice. I'm not a fan of EVGA boards, especially when great boards (like the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R) cost less.
Third, you don't need an 850W PSU. A 650W would be perfectly fine.
Fourth, I hate the Storm series. They're overpriced. Take a look at the Antec 300 Illusion, Coolermaster 690 or HAF 922.
Ah. That gigabyte board was the 2nd one i had in mind. Generally i tend to go with Gigabyte. Second would be Asus. And yes build for gaming, rendering as I am using MAYA and other software for environmental modeling. Thanks for the suggestion. I like your list, I'll consider it over my original.
