I am planning to get this set up... keeping in mind

1. I dont need SSD
2. Cd/Dvd drive
3. I am not going to overclock
4. I want my build to be durable with help of good cooling.
etc.


Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 1TB SATA-II 3.5" Hard Drive

Intel Core i7 950 3.06Ghz (Nehalem) (Socket LGA1366)

Asus Sabertooth X58 TUF Intel X58 (Socket 1366) Motherboard

Mushkin 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 9-9-9-24 Silverline

Sapphire HD6870 1GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

Corsair TX Series 750W ATX2.2 SLI/Crossfire Compliant Power Supply

Corsair H70 Corsair Water-Cooling CPU Cooler

I am still new to building my own pc so i was wondering, with this build what kind of games do you think i can play with ease.. at high settings or medium settings. For example

Crysis, Starcraft, Cod, etc

Depends on resolution but you can basically play everything with this build at medium if not high settings.

Now if you were asking what games you can play at only maximum settings... whole different story.

I think you'd be better off with a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ instead of the H70

and with an i7 and 6870, if you have a decent resolution, you'll destroy most games pretty well, but Crysis is a crap game and it takes up way too much power anyway

I am thinking for purely gaming the config is CPU/Mobo/RAM heavy and u could even land a HDD 6870CF for less $$ @@

Conclusion: A Trend Toward 3+ Cores

The average optimal number of CPU cores suggested by the test results is 2.75, showing a clear trend towards at least three CPU cores.The question of whether the CPU or GPU is most important is easily answered. If you don't have a multi-core CPU, then upgrade it. If you have a dual-core CPU at around 3 GHz, then invest your money into a graphics card, as most games are GPU-limited. This is not something that will change with new DirectX 11 games.

1. Why do you need H70 if you ain't overclocking? I agree with the Cooler Master Hyper 212+

2. Your rig can handle almost everything at the moment especially if you XFire the HD6870s. Your PSU is already enought o handle 2xHD6870.

3. You can drop to X4 965 or i5 760 and get 2 HD6870s for the price difference if you use it mainly for gaming. I agree with batuchka.
