Putting together new gaming PC, need opinions Tags: Homebuilt Gaming Systems Last response: October 1, 2010 5:49 PM in Systems Share Anonymous a b B Homebuilt system a b 4 Gaming October 1, 2010 5:18:15 PM I'm putting together a new gaming system. Will be used for applications as well and mainly Star Wars new MMO next year. Let me know your opinions, I cant go much about 1.6k which is where I'm at now. Also give me your overclocking opinions. Should I? and if I should to what specs. Motherboard - Asus P6TD Deluxe http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... CPU - Intel I7 930 2.8 Ghz(Overclockable to 4 Ghz stable I believe) RAM - 6 sticks of Corsair XMS3 Tri Channel DDR3 1600 MHz 2gigs each(Total of 12 gigs) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Case - Coolermaster HAF X http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Cooling - Coolermaster Hyper 212 (Might upgrade to the V8) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Video Card - EVGA Geforce GTX 470 1.3 Ghz DDR5 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Power Supply - OCZ StealthXStream 2 700W http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Hard Drive - Western Digital Cavier 500gb 7200 rpm http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... I was originally going to go with 2 Radeon 5770 but from what Ive read a single 470 will out perform them and is actually cheaper and easier to expand later on if I want to get another. If there is any changes you would make, please let me know. This totals to around 1.6k I think. Edit: Changed from BluRay RW to generic 20 dollar dvd drive and changed cpu coolers More about : putting gaming opinions Anonymous a b B Homebuilt system a b 4 Gaming October 1, 2010 5:28:21 PM How does that case compare to the Antec 1200 and the DarkFleet 85? obsidian86 a b B Homebuilt system October 1, 2010 5:34:52 PM the case is a lil better then the others here is a better hsf http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite...
