Advice on Sandy Bridge build needed Tags: Build Sandy Bridge Systems Last response: January 13, 2011 2:22 AM in Systems Share ElectricRig January 12, 2011 8:30:14 PM Sigh had the perfect i7 build, but now Sandy Bridge has come along and screwed everything up. Here is my new revised build its main purpose will be for gaming: GPU: 2 x Radeon 6950 CPU: i5-2500K CPUC: Zalman CNPS10X Performa MOBO: Asus-p8p67 Pro RAM: ? PSU: Corsair GS800 800W MONITOR: 2 x Philips 234EL HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB CASE: AeroCool X-Predator SSD: OCZ 120GB Full detail: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=t-11vi42E3wMRqE... I am not too sure which ram to get seeing that there are hardly any compatible with Sandy Bridge. Also, do you reckon that the Asus p8p67 pro is good enough or should I get the Asus p8p67 deluxe. Lastly, I'm slightly over-budget and I was thinking I could save a few bucks by getting a smaller sized SSD instead but I'm not to sure which will be best. My last PC I got had compatibility issues and constantly gave me BSOD so if you disagree with any of the choices please tell me.
