Hey there everyone, I mostly have my build complete just wanted to see their were any improvements I could make to it.
Approximate Purchase Date: End of month
Budget Range: 1250
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming
Parts Not Required: Graphics Card, Monitor, OS, Keyboard, Mouse
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com
Country of Origin: US
Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Nope, But I would prefer the HAF X, and a recommendation as to what fan to buy for the top open slot in the case, I do not want any color other then what come with the case.
SLI or Crossfire: Yep
Monitor Resolution: 1920x 1200
I excluded the Graphics card, because I will be buying that last after I get everything else put together. If you guys could look at what I have so far, and give me any suggestions as how to improve it.
i understand that the 12GB is overkill, its only 100 dollars more then the 6GB g.skill pi series, and I plan on getting 24GB. I would like to have a 950W psu because it gives me peace of mind that I won't run out of power.
Ya definitely cut back on your ram and psu (your mobo cant even support more than 2 cards). Do you really need a massive $200 case too? Im sure the haf 932 or the 922 would offer you more than enough room.
I just want to have 24GB. I don't plan on ever using more then 2 cards at a time. I picked the HAF X because had the most features and cooling options under 300 dollars. I was thinking either CF 6870, or Sli 480, what I due depends on how much money I have after I buy this other stuff.
i'm not sure, for not it would be like 250 for graphics i'm leaning towards the 6870, but plan on cross firing them. I am also buying a 300 dollar monitor so about 1300 for the whole computer without monitor or Graphics Card.
Since you said $1300 and $250 for the card so $1550 total.
That puts you at $1400 with 2 6870's and an awesome gamin rig. It'll also leave you with enough room to upgrade to 12gb of ram if you really insist on it, but you wont benefit from it in gaming.
