Can you please have a brief look at the following components and see if you can suggest any problems or improvements with my planned build. I am looking for a highish spec gaming rig but one that is fairly quiet with good cooling.
I know, but the modular design is easier and neat.
It's actually a bit nicer than the HX as well.
Please guys, don't fight on somebody else's thread. He's asked for advise. If we can help him out, gr8. If we can't, just quit. Thanks.
Im not fighting, chill out.
Thanks for your help so far guys, I will probably change the ram as I thought it may have been overkill!
I know I could easily get away with a much cheaper case but after reading a lot of reviews the FT02 seems to offer great cooling and very low noise levels which are important for me as I will be overclocking (or attempting to!) and I love the look of it. It's just one of those 'don't need, must have' buys!
Looking at power supplies I would definately prefer a modular one for neatness. I have a OCZ EliteXstream 800w at the moment but can't stand the cable management otherwise I would probably keep that.
Overall though do you feel the components suit each other and are there any compatability issues I should look out for with this set up?
Nope, it all looks good ^
No compatibility issues, but if you could hold on to your cash a bit longer, then newer, faster SSD's are due pretty soon, not to mention new platforms & GPU's from Intel, AMD, ATI.
So if you can, at least postpone the SSD decision for now.
True. I was considering waiting for the new 6xxx series ATI cards near the end of the year to see what was announced and the price drop effect on the current range. I could probably wait til the new year and see how things change up to then although the money is burning a hole!
You needn't actually get the new stuff. Though at this budget, you might as well.
