Hello all,

I am going to be building myself a computer soon and i have done a decent amount research into the parts. I am looking for a decent gaming computer for Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 (when it comes out) and World of warcraft with maybe the occasional FPS. I am just wondering if the parts i picked out are decent or if anyone has any feedback related to them. here goes the list.

I was also worried that my Graphics card might be to much for the board? thanks again!

  1. anyone feed back ? :)
  2. I would change the board to the sabertooth => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131601&cm_re=saber_tooth-_-13-131-601-_-Product because it has some real nice features for 10 bucks more, although the colors may be.. not your style.
    (Do you care for USB3/SATA II?)

    Change out the power supply to this => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207002&cm_re=xfx_650w-_-17-207-002-_-Product because that antec one is a little.. too cheap. None of the wires are sleeved.. its grey.. XFX would be the better choice.

    Much faster 1TB hard drive => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185&cm_re=spinpoint_f3-_-22-152-185-_-Product or the 500GB version => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181&cm_re=spinpoint_f3-_-22-152-181-_-Product

    Cheaper, all black SATA optical disc drive => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827118039

    Corsair dominator isn't that great.. get some g.skill, they are faster and cheaper => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231321&cm_re=g.skill_4gb_eco-_-20-231-321-_-Product

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Don't overclock the CPU to 3ghz, that's pointless.

    Get the GTX 460 for a graphics card => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127510 $199 After rebate
  3. i don't really know what i would do with usb3 and sata 2 i have no use for either yet becuase i dont plan on doing ssd's until the next build when they drop in price and are more available and cheaper
  4. It's always best to be a step ahead of the game so I would like USB3. With a decent aftermarket cooler your i5-750 can easily reach 3.5Ghz. If you don't fold or BOINC then you may as well save on electricity and not overclock but if you do you'll be shooting up the rankings. I digress, but the i5-760 is faster and cheaper in the UK than the i5-750 it has superseded.
