Hey GUys!

I'm going to start building a new gaming pc around nov! I would like you guys to feel free to criticize or recommend any changes. I'm focusing a budget under 2,000. The new built system focus is gaming and home entrainment. So tell me what you think.

COOLER MASTER HAF 932

Antec Mult-Station Elite Internal IR receiver w/ VFD and remote <--you can turn on your pc with this and use remote for media stuff.

MSI P55-GD80 LGA 1156 <--i pick this because easily oc with genie. nice layout for 2 x16 mode runnng sli and i can fit a audio card easily.

Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB 1600mhz <---i like red lights. but honestly give me your opinion about this!!

ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU/2DI/1GD5 <---runs cool gives the same performance in sli mode like 5870 and 480 card.

coolermaster gx series 750 watts<--personally it can handle the system.

Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB <--im overclocking this mofo.

Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2/64GB 2.5" 64GB <--for os and application purpose only!

Western Digital Caviar black 1tb

SAMSUNG Black blu-ray player

cooler master v-6 cpu cooler.

HT | OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 <-- i personally heard the quality of this card and hands down its way better than any creative champion series period.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Do NOT get the Cooler master GX 750, it has had two poor reviews at jonnyguru, the unit that coolermaster sent for the second review was even worse than the first getting a score of 3/10 for performance. Pay a bit more and get a 750TX, TP-750, or XFX 750, they are all much better quality than the GX 750.

Other than that it looks pretty good, what are the timings and voltage on that memory kit? is it CL 7?

timings 8-8-8-24

volt 1.65v

cls 8

i heard the tighter the timings it give you a better performance? i also read cls 7 beats cls 8 in speed/performance?

personally i went for i5 dual memory with 2x 460 it gives me overall great perfomance for gaming. My opinion about spending 3k gaming system is kinda stupid. under 2k seems reasonable. anyways you prolly get 10-25 fps in high end gaming machine vs this setup. big deal
