Hello everyone. I'm new in building pc-rigs and i would like to hear your opinion about my hardware selection (if you don't mind :D  )
I want to build my pc with these parts:
-AeroCool Vx-E Pro (
-Corsair TX850W (
-Asus P6X58D-E (
-Intel i7 930 (
-Corsair Dominator DDR3 6Gb/1600Mhz (
-Western Digital Caviar Black 500Gb (
-Samsung Blu-Ray Combo Sata (
For the graphics card i want a GeForce GTX 470 but i can't decide wich one of these:
-MSI N470GTX-M2D12 (
-Gigabyte GV-N470SO-13I (
-Asus ENGTX470 (
Could you tell me which one is the best ( the difference about the price is 5-10€)
I would like to Overclock in the near future the CPU, is the Corsair H70 ( good enough or i should search for something else?
If you have other combinations i don't mind hearing them!
Thanks in advance ;)

1. Like the case, take a look at the HAF 912 also-
2. That PSU is great but im not sure you'll need that much power, maybe go down to a 750 or 700?
3. Mobo= Very nice
4. Maybe go for an I7-950 (simillar price) but otherwise very good
5. Awesome RAM or try G.skill 6GB pack
6. Good HDD, maybe a spinpoint F3 also?
7. Blu-Ray is always good
8. I, personally, would go for a 460 SLi but id probably take the Asus 470
9. For the CPU cooler the H70 isn't worth it IMO, the Noctua NH-D14 is cheaper and the same, if not better performing. (although its incompatible with the Dominators because of their size), maybe a silver arrow or venemous X?

Yeah thats just my opinion but pretty good list :)

Thanks for you opinion, I forgot to mention that I want to put another gtx 470 in SLI in 2-3 years (that's why the 850W PSU).
I didn't choose the 460 cause it is compatible only with 2-way SLI!
Are the 3 stock fans enough for the case cooling or do I have to install 2 more on the top?
(The pc budget is around 1000€)
Thanks for your time! :D

Okay then keep that PSU it makes sense now :)  The three fans should serve you well for the time being but you can get more down the line anyway. So are you planning to do more than 2 way SLi in the future?

Yes, let the price drop first and then I think installing the 2nd. On November-December 2011 or January 2012!
I searched the web and I found that the Dominator is compatible with the Noctua NH-D14 (
14th line ''Can I use Corair Dominator RAM with the NH-D14?''

Also I don't know if the Noctua NH-D14 is compatible with the case Aerocool Vx-E Pro cause it has a 200mm side fan.

yes, they are triple channel.
By the way I want to buy this computer after xmas, more likely around the first week of January 2011!
I checked google about the new GTX 580 and it is supposed to be released on 9 Nov 2010, maybe I'll reconsider about getting a gtx 480(if the price drops around the price of the gtx 470)
