Need a case still and was wanting a HTCP case but do not know what one to pick.
Is there any problem with what I listed above? I am not sure if I picked the best components for the price. And am i missing anything?
Mobo seams like real over kill IMO. But if you're really intruiged by how sweet it looks I totally understand. Also slightly confused by the computer's use. As for a HTPC use, if you don't have a PS3 or Blu-Ray player you might add one in your build and spend a bit less on the Mobo/GPU. Also not so sure about the quality of the SSD, there are better options out there IMO.
Maybe a better SSD, plus save w/ combo deal w/ CPU.
Also, just for consideration (some one will probably rip me a new one for suggesting this)
Modular PSU, same 80+ certification, Corsair is a great brand (as is xfx) and WD Caviar black Sata 6 HDD. WD is the most reliable brand for HDDs IMO, and the drive still has very good performance, even if it doesn't come close to using the SATAIII potential. Also, GSkill Ripjaw ram toatl ~25$ more than your Ram, PSU, HDD. Or stick w/ the same ram at ~15$ more. Just something to consider.
Thanks for response mgrzTX. I plan to play WoW, and use it as a HTCP. I also have a few websites I plan to build and when I build my media storage I will be ripping/burning blueray. I will not be adding the blueray until probably June when I change my entertainment setup.
I have upgraded the SSD card and switched out the ram
I would be a little skeptical of a 700W PSU being able to handle that CPU + 2 6870s in xfire, and I don't know much about Cooler Masters PSU products. I would probably trust the xfx and corsair 750w PSUs to be able to handle it. Of coarse if we wind up Xfiring and overclocking then I doubt any of these PSUs will handle 2x6870s and the950 overclocked.
Cool, thanks for the chart, for some reason I remembered it being more. I guess if you're pocket book can handle it it couldn't hurt to build in a little safety factor there. Also, like was said you can still get a pcie x1 tv tuner.
