Thord's List


I got tired of Dell's proprietary mother boards and decided to take the plunge and build myself a PC. I do not intend to over clock nor am I a game player, just a retiree enjoying a hobby. I bought an Antec case (NSK 6582B) which came with a 430W PSU. However the 430W may not be enough so I added a 750W PSU to my list. I would like to keep the PC reasonably cool, quiet, simple and problem free. My grandchildren may want to play games when they visit which I hope happens often. I have no budget.

Processor: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950

Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Video: EVGA FPB (Free Performance Boost) 768-P3-1360-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Memory:CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D

Case: Antec NSK 6582B Black 0.8 mm Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 430W Power Supply

PSU: Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready Crossfire Ready 80 Plus

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for system builders – OEM

I would like to know if my selections are compatible and what I might need to complete the package. I have hard drives and a monitor (Dell 2007WFP).

Although the above list is from Newegg, I will probably purchase some of the items from Amazon.

Thank you,

  1. Looks to be an impressive system...

  2. You may want to wait a couple of weeks for the new intel CPUs on a new socket.

    Thank you for reviewing my system. I've purchased all the parts from/through Amazon and the total after rebate came to $1,003.67. With the Antec case from Newegg $106.99 the grand total will come to $1,110.66. I'm very happy with that figure.

    Again thanks!
