More about what setup
  1. "This wish list is empty."
  2. 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."
  3. 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.
  4. Not to mention the 5830 is not a good buy, you could get a better performing 6850 for less.
  5. Max gaming
    Light 3D rendering
    Thats what i will use it for

    Unbalanced?! i think it is Balanced!
  7. The PSU is overkill. If you're spending that much money why not look at a 2500k?

    +1
  9. 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

    If not, spend a few extra bucks on a nice set of G Skill Eco. $145 ddr3 1600 7-8-7-24

    Spend an extra $15 and get a 1080p monitor

    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?
  13. A 6850 is definitely better than a 5830, 5830s weren't that good to begin with.
  14. Game's aren't actually using blue rays for the future. Move is to digital distribution.

    SB=sandy bridge.

    If you're a serious gamer, then a wireless mouse if a bad idea.

    Even top of the line current mice still suffer from many wireless mice issues

    .


    Can you post the Monitor link that link does not work
  17. Nvr mind
  18. HA! to anyone that says look at Sandy brige: SB is broken. so AMD 4ever!
  19. 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.

    K.
    but still AMD 4ever!
    when Bulldozer comes out i will buy!
  21. Did you notice you have both Arctic Silver AND Rosewill thermal compound on there? Do you really want both?
  22. 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.
