What is this going to be used for? This seems like a really unbalanced rig. Could you fill out the sticky "How to ask for build advice."

MB => Upgrade to one with a 800 series chipset. ASRock 870 Extreme3 has USB 3, SATA 6 and 8x/8x Crossfire for a very good price.

CPU => The x6 is fine, but overkill. The x4 955 BE is a better choice for gaming and will OC well. If going with an x6, consider overclocking the 1075T. It will save you some money and OC VERY similarly to the 1090T / 1100T.

CPU Cooler => CM Hyper 212+ will do just as good of a job for half the price.

SSD => The OCZ Vertex 2 60GB is a little cheaper and has the same SandForce controller (will perform the same).

USB 3.0 PCI Card => No need with the upgraded MB.

Not to mention the 5830 is not a good buy, you could get a better performing 6850 for less.

The PSU is overkill. If you're spending that much money why not look at a 2500k?

60gb SSD isn't gonna work. Not unless you want to do a lot of junctioning.

Horrendous timings on that RAM. If you want cheap grab 2 kits of same spec ripjaws for $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If not, spend a few extra bucks on a nice set of G Skill Eco. $145 ddr3 1600 7-8-7-24
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Spend an extra $15 and get a 1080p monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Wireless input + gaming = bad idea.

PSU massively overpowered as mentioned earlier. You can easily run xfire 6850's on a good 650W PSU. Check the XFX 650, Corsair 650TX and Antec TP and earthwatts 650 (80 + bronze ones).

Do you actually need a Blueray drive?

Case is massively sized for your needs. Unless you plan on adding a lot more HD's no need. A 922 is fine and saves you a ton of money.

SB mobo's are currently undergoing a recall due to faulty chipsets. So out of picture until new ones comes out.

Thanks for the help.
1 SB mobo: someone here told me to get i will go back to old one.
2: Blueray: Yes Blueray is the future of gameing.
Wireless gameing: use all the time on LAN.
PSU going to change that.

Are you sure it is better?
January 31, 2011 7:53:12 PM

A 6850 is definitely better than a 5830, 5830s weren't that good to begin with.

HA! to anyone that says look at Sandy brige: SB is broken. so AMD 4ever!
February 1, 2011 11:44:29 PM

SB isn't actually broken, the CPU's are fine. It's the p67 chipset that is broken, and it's a minor issue. Intel is just being safe to avoid lawsuits down the road, hence the recall.

Did you notice you have both Arctic Silver AND Rosewill thermal compound on there? Do you really want both?
February 2, 2011 2:59:34 PM

I'm a little jealous you beat me by $5 on the RAM I ordered yesterday (Corsair vengeance vs. your G.Skill Ripjaws X); same timing, voltage, etc.

The build otherwise looks great. Except for the speakers. Your speakers make me sad ;) . I'd recommend a nice pair of Sennheiser headphones anyway.
