Hello everyone. I've made up my mind that I'm unhappy with a Dell computer I bought about 2 years ago and decided I'm going to build myself a new rig, first time building one. I can't decide whether or not to go with the X58 chipset or the new Sandy Bridge (any clarification here would be helpful as I know little about it). Basically I want this machine to be able to game at moderate to high settings on newer titles like Crysis, WoW, etc, on a monitor with the resolution of 1680x1050. Here's a list of parts I've compiled so far.
Case: HAF 932 (already purchased)
Processor: I7 950
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth X58
Graphics Card: Nvidia Gtx 560 TI
Hard Drive: Western Digital 1TB
Power Supply: Corsair 850 watts (already purchased)
RAM: Corsair XMS3 12GB kit
Again, any help on the build would be much appreciated.
If you can return the case+psu do it because a 650w or 750w will be overkill but will be cheaper overkill. and the HAF 932 is great but the 922 will work for all systems that use an ATX mobo and basic water or basic-advanced air
Thanks for the responses. I know that my PSU might seem a bit overkill, but I plan on doing SLI in the future, around Christmas, and it's recommended to be around that ballpark for the configuration. Regarding my monitor, it's my primary use as a display, but I also might use a flat screen TV or get a new monitor that uses a higher res in the future. As for the AMD processor, I would like to steer clear of those. I know that they tend to be in plenty of budget builds, but from as far as I can tell, Intel would fit more of my needs than an AMD.
