Hey everyone, looking for advice/critic on my proposed hardware. This will be my first build, I was aiming for ~$1000 on the initial build. This box will be used for HD movie watching, some gaming (Starcraft II), software dev (some highly multi-threaded database stuff), school projects and some overclocking(hoping to take it to at least 3.3-3.4ghz).
Here it is:
This puts me at $981 - $70 in mail in rebates = $911 + shipping. I'm thinking that this is one killer deal.
I'm eventually planning on adding more cooling and an SSD, but this is just the initial build.
What do you think? I'm not too sure about the power supply, but it's made by antec and I've heard good things about them. I'm also not quite sure if this wattage is too much/too less(I don't really know how to tell this)?
Thanks for comments/advice in advance
another good build batuchka, yes i wouldnt go for a 5830, the gtx 460 1gb is a much better choice right now, but it depends if you are getting a second gpu down the line, batuchka i dont know much about amd components but correct me if im wrong lets say the OP wants to get a second gtx 460 can he SLI it on the amd motherboard? lotus feet will you be adding another gpu down the line? if not go for a gtx 460
TS mentioned "some gaming" and unless he is thinking 2560 x 1600 SC2 Ultra+AA i wouldn't advocate SLI/CF and in fact w/o AA/Full HD somethingl lesser than a 768 GTX 460 would be more than fine just that the HD 5830 with current pricing is not a better buy ^^
